Abstract
The purpose of of this study was to determine the direction of reading interests of a group of third and fourth grade pupils in order to determine how their reading abilities could be improved. These children resided in a southeastern inner-city school area. Out of three elementary schools fifty disadvantaged youth who were to be assigned to special reading classes were selected as subjects.
