Many of the problems which are endemic among middle school and senior high school youngsters who have difficulty in learning how to read effectively are overcome in writing workshops. Disabled readers at the secondary level often have a bad attitude toward reading. This attitude stems from their having developed bad self-images during their elementary school years, and these negative self-images are directly connected with their inability to perform at anticipated levels in the basic skills.
