Excerpt from Special Method in the Reading of Complete English Classics in the Grades of the Common School
This little book is a continuation of the series of Special Methods, of which it is the third number. The Special Method in Literature and History is a preparation for this book. It deals with the oral treatment of fairy stories, Crusoe, and myths before the children are old enough to read them and prepares them for the reading discussed in this book.
The effort to gather into a rising series the best classic products of our English tongue and to appropriate them to direct school purposes is very inspiring. It opens up a field of great richness and culture to both teachers and children. If all our teachers in the common schools should read with thoughtful appreciation ten or a dozen of the best books in the series, it would surely improve the teaching in all our schools by twenty-five per cent.
The best literature suited to the grades has a variety of close and vital relations to nearly all the other studies as, for example, to history, geography, natural science, and language. Since literature is so elevating and so many-sided in its culture influence, it supplies a solid basis for the correlation and unification of studies now so much discussed. The other books of the series can be seen in the price list at the end of this book.
