Abstract

In 'reading habit', we get two words 'read-ing' and 'habit'. Reading is an action of a person who reads and habit is a product of this action or learning. Like all other habits, the habit or read-ing in an individual develops during the course of time. ... Reading is a precise process. Reading is one of the most fundamental skills a child needs to learn to succeed in life. Developing good reading habits is vital to your child's future not just academically, but in everyday life as well. Reading allows for exposure to words and phrases that you might not use as part of normal speech. Reading occupies a pivotal role in the life of a man. Reading opens the doors of the treasures of knowledge. It is an important means of introducing the child to the world that surrounds him. It is the very foundation on which the edifice of the child is to be built. Reading is one of the most important components of our language and it is an essential tool for lifelong learning for all learners. In order to face the 21st century, education has to prepare these learners to adapt to social and technological changes that are taking place at an unprecedented rate. Education under these circumstances depends largely on language competency. In this context, reading especially is a resource for continued education, for the acquisition of new knowledge and skills, for gaining information through media, especially newspapers, books, radio, television, and the computers. It is the right time to measure the reading habits of high school students who are connected with it. As such there is no valid research tool to measure the reading habits of high school students. Hence the research attempted to develop a research tool for that purpose.
