Abstract

Can a practising classroom teacher implement an extended remedial reading program within a normal classroom setting? -- Is it possible to identify a set of functional diagnostic instruments which could be used by the classroom teacher responsible for such a program? -- Within the limits of this present study, each of the questions above must be answered in the affirmative. -- The purpose of this internship was to carry out a remedial program within the regular classroom in order to improve the reading performance of a group of retarded readers. The subjects were six children clearly in need of remediation who were already members of the class. A number of tests currently in print were administered during the course of the program; one particular test of word recognition skills was found to be of significant value in this instructional setting: t test technique was employed to determine significance of test data; significant differences between results of pretest and posttest procedures were observed.
