This paper has been written to set forth some of the functions of the reading teacher at the junior high level. There are many demands which such a teacher must meet. Some of these are of a predictable nature and can be dealt with in a prescribed manner. Other functions are more difficult to predetermine because much depends upon the students who are involved in the reading program. The size of the classes is intended to be very small, numbering not more than five students per class. It is expected that the students selected for participation in the reading program would be those who have the ability to learn but are much below grade level in reading.
