As teachers in the schools of this country, we pay lip service to the proposal that we must be concerned with the education of the individual. In our textbooks in college, we are reminded that the aim of good teaching is to bring about a change of behavior in the individual. In our classrooms, because of broad differences in individual reading ability and individual performance, we often find it necessary to group students into small, more homogeneous, groups so that we can meet the reading needs of the individual student.
