Reading is one of the essential components of good study habits. For a student belonging to any grade academic success has a strong correlation with reading. An effective reader is someone who is actively engaged and is responsible for understanding and comprehending the idea expressed in the text. Reading not only helps in academic success but also aids in developing critical thinking and problem solving ability. Unfortunately reading ability among students is somewhere lost amidst the digital world. Therefore in order to see the impact of reading ability on study habits of high school students we conducted a study on 226 eighth grade students. 122 of them belong to state board syllabus, 56 from CBSE and 48 from ICSE syllabus. We administered study habit inventory (Palsane and sharma, 1989) for all the students before and after intervention. The intervention included 16 sessions of 15 minutes each for the experimental group, of 76 students (34 from state syllabus, 22 from CBSE and 20 from ICSE) 5 days a week. We recorded the time taken by each student to read a list of 30 English words (selected from prescribed text books for English, social science and science).we noted the no, of trials and time taken for each trial during 15 minutes per student. The statistical analysis using ANOVA indicates a significant increase in study habit score as a result of intervention for the experimental group.
