Library of Congress Subject Heading

Reading comprehension; Junior high school students


The writer feels that research must turn from general principles to specific principles, thus allowing the teacher to see the development of a given skill. The subject area teacher is hampered in teaching the needed skills because he focuses on an isolated skill instead of looking to the prerequisites required to become proficient in the skill at hand. The writer wishes to investigate the skills involved in reaching proficiency in order to develop an outline to be used at the junior high level. This investigation will be limited to outlining, which is a reading study skill. The author wishes to list the various reading skills that are utilized when making an outline and to demonstrate how content-teachers can make use of this knowledge.
