This course is intended to make the students read a large number of judiciously selected enjoyable reading-materials and then answer simple questions based on those materials.

The reading materials in this course will include (1) simple poems having a rich emotive and imaginative content suitable for the age group, (2) descriptive passages and simple expository writings of both deductive and inductive na­ture.
