Abstract

Individualized Developmental Reading at Gilbert High School, Gilbert, Iowa, is a one semester elective course for students in grades nine through twelve.

The course is developmental in that through it a student is helped to improve his reading abilities in the areas of vocabulary, comprehension, speed, and study skills regardless of his abilities when he begins his work.

The course is individualized in that each student works independently on materials that will help him develop his reading skills; very little whole class or small group instruction is included.

The purpose of this paper is to show the relative value of three different approaches to the teaching of individualized developmental reading at Gilbert High School over a period of three semesters on an experimental basis.
