The problem concerns the reading deficiencies of the high school students of St. Paul-Shiloh High School, Oakwood, Texas. The deficiencies that have been noticeable and have hindered the advancement of the students are vocalization when reading silently, short eye span, too any fixations and regressions, poor word recognition, and lack of comprehension. In fact, quite a number of the students are reading below their grade level.
The purpose of this study is to find the underlying causes for poor reading, to propose the types of remedial instruction needed, and to offer a "follow-up" program.
The scope of this study is limited to the sixty-three students who attended this high school during the school year 1948-49. It concerns forty-two of the one hundred fifty families who live in the three communities which make up the school. The data of this paper include information received from authoritative authors, professional magazines, a questionnaire, intelligence and reading tests.
