This article proposes a reading program for junior high school students in the U.S. The program as planned treats reading as a major subject; that is to say, reading is required and not elective, and the reading class meets each day of the week for a full period. It need not necessarily meet each day with the same teacher. In addition to the five periods weekly spent in required reading activities, each pupil selects one allied club to which he belongs and which meets one period each week. If six periods weekly seem too much to devote to reading, let it be remembered that the anticipated greater facility in reading will actually lessen the time needed for certain other school subjects.
