Yarnell, Edward A.
This pamphlet is intended for teachers and other people concerned with the teaching of reading. The sections of the pamphlet include: "Individual Differences," which looks at how schools have tried to meet the problem of individual differences; "Working with Individual Difference," which discusses what an individual brings with him to the classroom and possible blocks to student progress in reading; "Reading Stages"; "Reading Levels," which discusses the frustration level, the instructional level, the independent level, and the capacity level; and "Reading Inventory," which discusses a method of determining a student's instructional level by calculating the grade level of difficulty of a variety of reading materials. Included with the pamphlet is a readability calculator which approximates the grade level of reading difficulty of printed material based on the number of sentences and the percentage of one syllable words in a 100-word selection.
