  • 19. REASONS FOR SELECTION  The students’ performance in exams, especially in English exams was slowly declining.  They had started to speak more in their native language. So their vocabulary was very poor.  Visual media was a major culprit in luring the students away from reading.  The English teachers and the librarian gave an opinion about the students’ lack of interest in reading.
