A remedial reading program under Title I.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of additional time allotment in a remedial reading class on a selected group of students in grades two through five in Wasco, California. The study was designed to find the effect of the additional time allotment in reading on the students in the program in four general areas . Those areas were:reading skills, verbal intelligence, general reading ability, and attitude of child toward reading. Because there were so many below grade level readers in the Wasco Union Elementary School District, this study was considered to be important and necessary. This study has helped in the search for solutions to the problem.
