Abstract

PROBLEM AMD DEFINITION OF TERMS USED

The elementary school has a very real responsibility for inculcating good study and research skills in its pupils. Unless they have a foundation in study skills it is futile to expect them to succeed in the more difficult study demands in high school and college.

For efficiency in these skills, a planned program is necessary. A haphazard, now and then approach will produce only haphazard results. Too many pupils go through school handicapped by poor development of these skills.

THE PROBLEM

Statement of the problem.

It is the purpose of this study to gather data concerning (1) the content of basic study and research skills, (2) the related skills needed, (3) the instructional procedures to develop efficiency in the use of the skills, and (4 ) ways to measure the results of teaching and learning these skills.

Importance of the study.

Skills in study and research are helpful in most study activities. The child who knows how and why to use them is better equipped to do independent study than is the child who does not think of doing these things or is not as skillful if he does do them. The child who fails to develop such skills will be handicapped in his reading in the content fields during the school years and also as an adult. A child who is limited in any of these skills is a specific reading difficulty in reading and will not be able to use the printed page effectively.
