Box, Gloria; Cady, Dorothy
Misconceptions regarding the reading abilities of Kingston, Jamaica, junior high school students are discussed. Preliminary planning procedures, details of the operational plan for the project classes, and a description of diagnostic studies, methods, and materials used are presented. Particular problems encountered; summaries of results and conclusions; and recommendations for classroom organization, for methods of teaching reading to junior high school students, and for materials are included. The problem of reading retardation in Jamaica is seen as caused primarily by the lack of teachers trained to teach reading at all levels. Charts and tables are included. (RT)
