This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of experiments performed in Mexico, D. F. by way of introducing new techniques for teaching reading and writing, particularly in the remedial classes. The first part of the document deals with a series of experiments carried out with first grade remedial groups as follows: (1) the Detroit-Engel intelligence test was applied to classify first-grade pupils at each school; (2) according to this classification, groups were formed in three learning capacity levels--high, medium, and low; (3) the school year was begun with the classified groups; (4) after four months of scholastic activity, those pupils who showed little or no progress were selected for the remedial group. When this group was organized, it was the object of specific psychological studies by means of the Bender test the degree of visual-motor coordination. When test results were known, a special psycho-educational set of exercises for learning reinforcement and consolidation were used, enriched by the experience of a teacher who led one of the remedial groups. The results achieved with these techniques and programmed teaching were very satisfactory, promoting slow learners and repeaters permanently to the next grade. (Author/GDB)
