The Self-Concept of the Retarded Reader and the Achieving Reader at the High School Level.
McWatters, Maria DeGise
A study investigated whether there is a difference in the self-concept of retarded readers and achieving readers at the high school level. Subjects, 30 retarded readers in a special education program and 30 normal or above achieving readers from two suburban high schools in Staten Island, New York, completed the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale. Results indicated that the retarded readers had positive but unrealistic ideas, goals, and aspirations concerning themselves. However, frequent observations inferred that these adolescents had an adequate view of self, as did observations of the group of normal or above achieving readers. (Two tables of data are included; 21 references and two tables of data are attached.) (Author/RS)
