In this study a somewhat different line of research is attempted. The endeavor here is to evaluate two approaches to the teaching of work-type reading. One of these is the traditional or group plan, the other an individualized scheme a great deal like that recently mentioned by Washburn.
An answer here is sought as to whether work type reading is taught more effectively to fourth grade children through group instruction or by a highly individualized technique. The measure of effectiveness was that as indicated by scores on standardized tests interpreted as reading ages, and other evidence that this will be later set before the reader.
