Summary

Individual contracts between the student and instructor are used as a means of modifying behavior in reading and study situations. Desirable behavior is described, and suitable performances of such behavior are outlined. Adult students agree to attempt to modify their behavior during a designated amount of time in order to meet their contracts. The rationale for such a program is that an individual can best modify his behavior when he knows what he is to do, when he is relaxed and free from stress, and when he finds the changes he is asked to make to be personally desirable. It is hoped that such a process might combat the disenchantment with classroom activity which is often a cause of failure. Graphs and references are included. (MS)
