READING HOW TO TEACH IT. Reading How To Teach It By Sarah Louise Arnold Bean of Simmons College, and author of Stepping Stones to Literature, Waytnarks for Teachers 1 etc. Silver, Burdett and Company Boston New York Chicago, 1899 BY SILVER, BURDETT AND COMPANY GREETING. The teacher of children must know how to guide her work so that the seemingly trivial beginnings shall tend toward a goal whose at tainment is worth striving for. Hers is a day of small things. The child does not see the end from the beginning, but the teacher must, and the constant recognition of the de sired object must influence her simplest lesson. These pages are written in the hope of help ing teachers to appreciate the true import of the familiar task. They attempt to interpret and to dignify the commonplace routine They have grown out of thoughtful experience, and are sent forth with good will, to their service. SARA LOUISE ARNOLD.

A company of the wisest and wittiest men that could be picked out of all citril countries, in a thousand years, have set in best order the results of their learning and wisdom. The men themselves were hiddenand inacces sible, solitary, impatient of interruption, fenced by etiquette but the thought that they did not uncover to their bosom friend is here written out in transparent words to us, the strangers of another age. We owe to books those general benefits which come from high intellectual ac tion. Thus, I think, we often owe to them the perception of immortality. They impart sym pathetic activity to the moral power. Go with mean people, and you think life is mean. Then read Plutarch, and the world is a proud place, peopled with men of positive quality, with heroes and demi-gods standing around us, who will not let us sleep. Then they ad- dress the imagination only poetry inspires poetry. They become the organic culture oj the time. College education is the reading of certain books which the common sense of all scholars agrees will represent the science al ready accumulated. In the highest civiliza tion, the book is still the highest delight. RALPH WALDO EMERSON. READING HOW TO TEACH IT. CHAPTER I. WHY DO WE READ THE power to read is so ordinary a part of our mental equipment that we rarely question its meaning or its ori gin. All common things pass us unchal lenged, however marvellous they may be. We take little note of our sunrises and sunsets, the hill range which we see every day from our window, the clear air which infuses new energies into our lives with every new morning. Com mon institutions, however precious the io Reading How to Teach It. home, the school, the church, the state are received by us as a matter of course, just as children receive without surprise the most valuable gifts from the hands of their friends. We need not marvel, then, that this power, which has so longbeen a part of ourselves, should remain unquestioned, or that we learn to read wifhout giving a thought to the motive which impels us to learn. It may be well for even the most thoughtful among us to pause for a moment to question why everybody learns to read to pon der the returns from the effort, the time, and the pains spent in the mastery of the art.
