Excerpt from Teaching Reading in Ten Cities Perhaps no plan for helping teachers through an educational Journal has ever been a greater success than the series of Teach ing Reading in Ten Cities, which appeared last year in Primary Education. Everybody who is responsible for the teaching of little children is keenly interested in the problem of teaching them to read. The ways are numerous. The results record every shade of satisfaction and dissatisfaction known to teachers. Rumors of what was being done in this branch of instruction in other schools reached the teachers; but they could not go and see for them selves. For this reason the work of the primary schools in ten leading cities of the Union was brought to them by means Of this valuable series, prepared either by the primary supervisor or a leading teacher in each locality. The scheme became popular at once. Here was a chance to visit other schools and compare notes without leaving their own work. Many school principals used each instalment as it appeared as the text for a teachers' meeting for the study of teaching youngest children to read. The ten articles cover every prominent method or system for teaching reading to beginners now in use in our public schools, and primary teachers have found in them the help, the breadth, and the inspiration that the series was designed to give.

Excerpt from On Teaching Reading in Public Schools: Practical Essay Read Before the Teachers' Convention of the County of Brant, Ontario, May 31, 1879 Here is an adage, which In days long gone by, was frequently quoted to me by my father, * when we discussed theoretical professional points, and which I have come more and more to recognize as applicable to. The Art of Teaching generally, namely: that what is best administered is best. You may have a good plan, but fail by carelessness or inaptitude to produce good results; or you may have an inferior method, and yet, by carefulness and tact, achieve comparative success. I hope to show you, from my own experience, a system Of teaching Reading which is calculated to produce the best results if skillfully put in practice; and which I think cannot fail to work a large measure of improve ment under any circumstances.

Excerpt from The Teaching of English in Schools: A Series of Papers The following pamphlet consists of papers (slightly abbreviated) and summaries of papers read at a Conference, which was held at University College, Reading, on July 6, 1918, on the teaching of English in schools. The Executive Committee of the English Association have authorized the publication, not necessarily because they endorse the views expressed, but because they consider that the discussion and ventilation of all kinds of Opinion on the subject of the teaching of English are likely to stimulate thought and arouse interest in its development.

Excerpt from Blackboard Reading First, write the sentence of Lesson I on the board and have it acted several times. Then, when you are ready to introduce this second lesson, have the first acted by a last year's pupil (or act it yourself as directed in Lesson I), and while he is still out front, write the sentence in this lesson on the board and tell him to do what it commands. He says, as he proceeds to his seat, go. The other pupils having watched and listened attentively are now ready to act the new command. Have it done by all the pupils.

Excerpt from Conflicting Principles in Teaching and How to Adjust Them Our practical education bristles with contradiction. Even a superficial survey of prevailing practice and principles in education Shows them Often running at cross-purposes. Learning to read in the first grade illustrates this. Some trained primary teachers de mand a systematic formal drill in the phonetic elements combined with the forms Of letters. Beginners are trained into the habit Of quickly interpreting new word forms by combining the elementary sounds. Other experienced and zealous primary teachers practice a sentence-and-thought method which makes the mas tery Of phonic elements and forms entirely secondary and incidental. A strong effort is made by such persons to avoid systematic formal drills. Primary readers and charts are worked out in accordance with each of these strongly contrasted methods of learning to read. In arithmetic, also, the spiral plan of arranging topics provides for a brief, incomplete treatment of a topic such as the table Of long measure, and a frequent return to this topic at stated intervals after other intervening topics have had a similar Short presentation. Such is the plan of the Werner arithmetics. Other arithmetics provide for a complete and adequate treatment Of a topic at one time, in one series of continuous lessons, till it is mastered, that is, till the process is fully under stood and variously applied. The two methods are in pronounced opposition. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Easy Road to Reading: Primer The subject matter in a beginning text book in reading should touch the child personally and be in keeping with his natural activities if it is to be of value in teaching him to read. It should appear for him in the form of action, rhythm, stories, plays, and games if the symbols of reading are to convey meaning. This Primer has been compiled with the foregoing in mind, the purpose being to offer an easy and natural course in reading for beginners. The vocabulary and subject matter have accordingly been chosen with special reference to the natural activities of children. Children are actors by nature and they therefore perform with pleasure the actions which words suggest. That which a child does involving self-activity makes a deep impression; thus the true meaning of words can be easily impressed upon him. It is, therefore, important that there shall be included in the early lessons a good list of action words which shall form the basis of interesting and thought-inspiring reading lessons and which can be easily demonstrated in class-room practice. The first nine lessons of The Easy Road to Reading Primer consist of simple reading matter compiled from a desirable list of action words. All these early lessons can be dramatized and the meaning of the words can thus be easily taught by having the children perform the actions suggested by them. Lessons 16-32 consist of interesting reading in which the new words are introduced in simple rhymes made up in part from the action words previously learned. These rhymes serve to fix the meaning of the words and sentences in the lessons and make the reading matter more interesting. Lessons 32-38 consist of short rhymes from that classic of childhood literature, Mother Goose. The lessons preserve the integrity of the rhymes, yet introduce a sufficient number of other sentences to emphasize the new words and fix by repetition those already presented. Lessons 38-68 are on nature. This section will be read in the fall of the year when the outside world is full of beauty and attractiveness.

Excerpt from On the Teaching of Modern Languages in Theory and Practice The Teachers' Training Syndicate. The second appears in a slightly altered form. As delivered it consisted largely of oral illustrations and comments, only a portion of which is now printed, while some parts have been expanded. There seems to be at last a disposition to regard seriously the pretensions of Modern Languages to a larger. Place in Education, and I am not therefore without hope that the First Lecture, if only by the criticism which it evokes, may in some way serve to promote their claim, and especially their claim as Literature, to a fair hearing. Teachers generally find details concerning the practice of other teachers interesting, but I can not flatter myself that any one else will read the Second Lecture to the end.

Excerpt from Developmental Reading in High School This is a book for high school teachers. It is written for the teacher who is perplexed by the realization that her pupils cannot read the materials Of her course. The need for the high school teacher Of today to assume the new and difficult responsibility Of teaching reading is becoming ever more apparent. It is evident also that She must have help in undertaking this task. It has been the Sincere desire Of the authors, from their experience and Study, to add to the help that is available. With this desire uppermost we have made an attempt to keep this book as readable and practical as is consistent with accuracy. Many controversial topics have been either purposely omitted or generalized SO that the teacher would not be confronted with a body Of research which might prove confusing. Written primarily for teachers and teachers - in-training, this book has grown out Of a study Of questions asked by high school teachers in various parts Of the United States, concerning problems that they have faced in teaching reading. The more useful reading Skills and techniques have been discussed; and specific, practical procedures have been given by, which these Skills and techniques may be developed.

Excerpt from The Teaching of Shakespeare in the High School: Thesis There is an admirable field for study in the High School in connection with the dramas of Shakespeare. The great diversity of his plots, the variety of his scenes and Situations, and his intense human interest make him an excellent author for pupils of the adolescent age. During this period boys and girls are eager for a taste of life and its problems. We should try, therefore, to develop in the pupils broader and more comprehensive ideals of human duty and service. These ideals are nowhere better taught than in that great body of literature, of which Shakespeare's dramas form an important part. Many a boy or girl receives the first glimpse of this author of authors in his nigh school English course. Whether he will ever read the Shakespeare plays outside of the classroom will depend on the way in which he has studied them in the classroom. Shakespeare's works are not easy for the average high school pupil to understand if he is left to himself to read them. He must be taught to appreciate them. Until a pupil has been shown that there is something worth while for win to read in Shakespeare, he W111 not take the trouble even to look at one of these plays, or if he does glance at one and finds it difficult to understand, he will throw it as1de, and W111 hear no more of Shakespeare.

Excerpt from The Study of Political Economy: Hints to Students and Teachers The interest which the public now manifests in economic studies led me to put the material of my lectures into a general form, in order that they might assist inquirers in any part of the country. No special knowledge has, therefore, been demanded of the reader by way of prep aration for the substance of what I have intro duced into this volume. By avoiding, as far as possible, all technical language, I have sought to make the inquiry useful to any general read er of intelligence who may be interested to know how to study political economy. But that which I have most at heart is the exten sion of instruction in political economy in all schools and colleges, and the improvement in methods of teaching the subject. I need hardly say that I shall be glad if these pages call out any suggestions by which these two objects may be furthered.

Excerpt from Reading and Language Lessons for Evening Schools All the lessons are based upon class-room experience in teaching the foreign-born. The subject-matter is familiar to students of evening schools. In all of the lessons talking the language precedes writing it. This textbook is designed for use in classes composed of students of several nationalities as well as in classes of but one nationality. It may also be used in classes of native-born adults who do not read and write English. Evening-school students wish to know the vernacular, both spoken and written, and are not concerned with language as a means of understanding literature. They study English for the sake of communicating with others, and need an accurate and fairly large vocabulary of words relating to common matters.
