The high age limit established by the compulsory school attendance law has caused the presence in high schools of many pupils of low intelligence. Classes composed entirely of these pupils will be referred to in this discussion as slow-moving groups. Teaching literature to these pupils is a particularly difficult problem. Many of them do not read with ease and hence cannot master the content when it is presented in the narrative method. They can not concentrate for a sufficient- ly long time to master it when the teacher uses the lecture method. It becomes necessary then to find some plan for teaching literature which will take into consideration the limited natural capacities of these slow-moving pupils
