This program has been prepared, as a result of concentrated effort and extensive research under the direction of the Professor of English at Prairie View Graduate School. Conferences were held with the members of the staff of the English Department at Prairie View Graduate School, and interviews with the Secretary of the Marlin Chamber of Commerce and the Custodian of books in the office of the superintendent of Falls County schools were made.

Standardized tests were given to the experimental group and to the control group. Questionnaires were answered by both groups and literary selections to be used in the proposed program have been tried with the experimental group.
