Excerpt from Bobbs-Merrill Readers: The Eighth Reader This is well, for skill in reading lies at the basis of success in all lines of study, while a taste for good literature is one of the surest marks of education and culture. The present volume undertakes to use, both in its materials and its method, the best results of the scientific study of the teaching of reading and literature in our schools. Two guiding principles have been followed in the selection of the literary passages to be included: (1) the interest and response of pupils; (2) the purpose to broaden and enrich the pupil's interest in reading by giving him contact with a wide variety of good literature.

Excerpt from Books and Reading for the Young: A Reprint From a State Report The public school teaches its children to read. It Opens to them a world of vast and varied literature. There are good books, good magazines and good papers, and there are bad books, bad maga zines and bad papers. While the printing press is thus a great engine of civilization, it is at the same time a great instrumentality for evil. As there is no better way to protect a child from evil than to make him a lover of good literature, so there is no surer way to corrupt him than by bringing him in contact with bad literature. The public school teaches the child to read, but it does not teach him what to read or how to read. It gives him the ability to interpret the printed page, but it fails in a great measure to cultivate in him a taste for that which is pure, elevating and instructive. It must not be forgotten that by giving the child the ability to read, we put it in his power to read the worst kind of books, and that, if left to himself, he will be quite as likely to take poisonous mental food as to take wholesome mental food. Indeed I think that, in view of the attractive garb in which vicious literature is clothed, he will be more likely to read to his injury than to his profit. The person, then, who teaches children to read and fails to cultivate in them a taste for good literature, puts an instrument into their hands which may possibly be used by them to their own destruction.

Excerpt from Wheeler's Graded Readers: A First Reader It is of the utmost importance that a child's first steps in reading should be taken in the right direction. A child does not learn to speak a word by hearing it once, and he will not learn to recognize the printed form of a word by seeing it once. He acquired his colloquial vocabulary slowly at first and by the aid of constant repetition. In this way, and in this way only, will he learn to recognize words in print. It should not be forgotten that in the early years of his training the child is forming habits of reading and of thought by which he will be aided for the rest of his life, or of which he will by and by have to cure himself with painful effort. The end of learning to read is the ability to read great books, but what shall the child's first reading book be Some of our educational wise men say that it should be filled with classic literature, and that it should containnothing which is not strictly classic. This sounds well, but these wise men have failed to produce the strictly classic First Reader. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Fifth Reading Book Literary interest, if aroused by this reader, will ex tend beyond the matter here presented. Properly understood, to teach pupils to read is to teach pupils to study. The aim and object of both reading and' study is to get the thought, to hold the thought, and to express the thought. To get the thought is to understand the meaning which the author wants to convey; to hold the thought is to form a mental image or picture of whatever is expressed and to keep it before the mind until the image is complete in all its parts; to express the thought is to convey to another the ideas which are in our own mind; and these are the necessary things to be done in the study of all subjects. To teach reading correctly is to induce proper habits of study. 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 Literary Interpretations: Or a Guide to the Teaching and Reading of Literature Furthermore, primary reading, which has for its immediate purpose skill in the interpretation of the printed symbols of discourse, consists also in literary interpretation. Symbols cannot be learned directly, but must be approached under the impulse of their informing ideas. To the child the motive is not the symbols, but the life contained therein. Hence it approaches a piece of discourse with the same motive as does the advanced student. Since the child's chief interest is in literary discourse, he should secure his skill in language interpretation under the literary pulse. It may be observed that the child constructs discourse under the impulse of ideal sentiment; it is inevitably a poet. It naturally speaks in figures of speech and poetic imagery. The first reader should be to the child what Dickens is to the more advanced student. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from A Primer of American Literature The aim of the book is to be simple, orderly, and clear; to tell a few facts in such a way that there need be no confusion in the mind of the reader. While it is hoped that the subject-matter of the book has intrinsic value, a knowledge of literature obviously comes only from study of the literature itself; therefore, primarily the book will have its greatest usefulness when taken as a guide. With this thought in view, suggestions for reading, intended mainly for students in secondary schools, are given at the ends of the chapters. More mature minds will naturally read the books mentioned in the text. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Readings From Literature Enjoyment of literature is a progressive art, gradually developed like other arts, hence these selections are not arranged in chronological order. They begin with a simple, humorous prose story and end with Milton's poetry. The taste for poetry is often an acquired one, but experience has taught the editors that by starting with the right selec tions a lasting love of poetry can be developed. Teachers should encourage pupils to memorize at least parts of the poems in this volume and to read all of them aloud. Former pupils have often taken the trouble to say to the editors that memorizing and reading aloud certain poems resulted in an increased liking for poetry. Matthew Arnold has truly said that we ought to have always in mind lines and expres sions from the great masters and apply them as a touchstone to other poetry. Such touchstones from the masters will be found in this volume. An endeavor is made to stress the social side of English, the side that appeals to everyday human needs and interests.

Excerpt from Choice Literature, Vol. 2: For Grammar Grades This is probably due to the fact that there is no series of readers well adapted to the carrying on of this work. The compiler of this series has attempted to meet this want. The selections are carefully made and graded, and are believed to be those suited to the age and maturity of the pupils for whom they are intended. They are all good of their kind, and it is believed that the selection of trashy matter on the one hand, or matter beyond the comprehension of the pupils on the other, has been avoided. Each volume of the series has been made with a definite purpose in view, and in each will appear a brief statement in regard to the selections made and the end aimed at. There will be such notes and explanations as seem to be necessary. This series can be used to an excellent advantage in teaching children how to read, but it should be borne in mind that the primary purpose of the series is to teach what to read, to create and foster a taste for good literature; therefore many selections, for which room cannot be found, will be suggested, to aid in directing the out-of-school reading of the pupils. It is hoped that teachers will encourage pupils to form little libraries of their own. Many suggestions will be made that will aid in such work.

Excerpt from Everyday Classics: Eighth Reader, the Introduction to Literature Book Eight of the Everyday Classics is an introduction to literature. In carrying out this purpose it completes the aim of the series, to put before the pupil selections which are both excellent and familiar, which form a valued part of the heritage of the nation and the race. In the earlier books, however, it has often seemed advisable to direct the attention to the heroes described, the stories told, and the morals enforced, rather than to a study of literary excellence. This book, more distinctly than any of its predecessors, is devoted to the study of literature. It seeks to encourage a knowledge and appreciation of the best that has been thought and imagined. The Seventh Book offered an account of the history and ideals of our own country as set forth by its chief authors. In the Eighth Book we go to the great masters of the world, and especially to those authors who from Shakespeare to Tennyson have been the glory of the English language. These two books thus complete the basic course in reading on the plan of the Everyday Classics, and they prepare the way for the more thorough study and appreciation of both American and English literature. They are especially adapted for use in Junior High Schools. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

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.

Excerpt from Interpretative Reading Techniques and Selections Interpretative reading should make distinct contributions to mental stability and emotional maturity. Since literature is an interpretation of life it calls for an understanding of life and contributes to living. Thus it sets up a constructive cycle quite contrary to the vicious cycles which bring maladjust ment. As one learns more about literature he has better under standing of life which enables him to interpret literature more effectively. In working for abandon to emotion and while us ing restraint in its expression one should achieve emotional balance. Since an interpretative art requires an objective atti tude toward emotion it should render one more objective toward his own emotions. Thus, through experiencing the thoughts and feelings expressed in literature and through shar ing them with listeners, the student receives that which is basic to mental balance and emotional maturity.

Excerpt from The Crime of the Congo There are many of us in England who consider the crime which has been wrought in the Congo lands by King Leopold of Belgium and his followers to be the greatest which has ever been known in human annals. Personally I am strongly of that Opinion. There have been great expropriations like that of the Normans in England or of the English in Ireland. There have been massacres of populations like that of the South Americans by the Spaniards or of subject nations by the Turks. But never before has there been such a mixture of wholesale expropriation and wholesale massacre all done under an odious guise of philanthropy and with the lowest commercial motives as a reason. It is this sordid cause and the unctious hypocrisy which makes this crime unparalleled in its horror. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
