Children who have been compelled
to leave school at fifteen should be
followed up. Suggestions should be
made as to how books and papers
may be obtained most cheaply. All
this mid mi re too ir.3y be necessary
before any large results will be ob
tained, If we can succeed in niuktnu
intelligent readers of even a small
percentage of our children invest
ment ol no effort will bring larger
There is one phaco of reading as it
relates to' language in our school
work, of which I wish to speak.
The one task of all our tasks that
soems the most Herculean, almost
overwhelmingly impossible Indeed;
the stone that wo roll uphill at great
labor today only to lind it at the old
level to-morrow, this task Is to get
our children to use correct English
in their speech and their writing.
If wo analyse the difliculty care
fully, I think wo shall find that the
foundation of tne whole trouHc lies
In tho untrained ear, or better per
haps in the wrongly trained ear,
How do we recognise a mistake in
spoken English? Is it not because it
Our children hear no English at all
outside of school hour3, or, worse
than none at all, that sort 'that
trains the ear wrongly, so that
wrong sounds right to them. How
shall we give them sufficient right
ear training u to counteract the
wrong? Lot me suggest one way.
We have already spoken of the
necessity of much review reading,
both as a drill in the pronunciation
of words and in tho functioning of
the more difficult ones. This re
view reading may bo done by the
teacher or by tho pupils but all
the pupils who are not at tho mo
ment reading, should listen with
closed books. This will necessitate
distrinct enunciation on the part of
thp reader will give a better drill
In the mental functioning of the re
view words than would result with
eyes on tho booK, and more than all'
will train the ear a hundred fold bet
ter. Th3 only-loss is the drill in re
cognition, and when the reader is
doing that for the pupil, it is doubt
ful whether the latter gets much
help by simply following with eye.
Another suggestion along this
same line. Lot the" teacher devote
a fesv moments each day to reading
or telling stories, stories that arc
simple in language and interesting.
Stories that contain much conversa
tion are the best, such as "Rey
nard the Fox" or "Great Claus and
Littlo Claus," for they furnish the
very form that the child most needs
to hear. Let tho children simply
listen, without being compelled to
respond in any way If the story is
a good one tho teacher will not need
to compel attention. No lino of
work is easier for a teacher, as tho
d'scipli.ic will take care of itself
during this excorcise, and nothing
will be moro profitable or bear bet
ter fruit In tho proper use of lan
guage. A new story will not be
needed each day as there are cer
tain stories that they will call for
again and again. Nursery rhymes
are excellent for this excorcise in
the bwer grades. This is not inten
ded to take tho place of the other
story work callpd for in the course
of study, but to supplement it.
Doubtless this question has often
proptosea itself to you:
Of what valuo to our Island chil
dren is drill in oral reading? Per
haps we shall get some littlo on this
suliject by asking ourselves this
other question. How many times
during their after lives will they be
called upon to read aloud? For a
large- majority of our children tho
answer would be, "Probably not at
all." yet most people just judge a
class by their ability to read, re
gardless of whether the reading is
really tho child's own interpretation
of the story or an echo of the teacher's
Interpretation drilled into tho child
by dint of weary hours of training
in voice modulation.
There is no doubt that oral read
ing is too much of a hobby with
too many teacher's. Its true placo
and value In tho school coi rso should
be carefully considered lest we over
As a drill in tho pronunciation
of tho new words of a lesson in com
binatlon with other words and as a
training for tho ear, looking toward
right oral and written expression,
oral reading hes a peculiar valuo n
out Island school. As a medium for
the child's interprotaticn of tho
thought of a lesson oral reading is

In order to anv sort of interpreta
tion of tho thought of a lesson, it is
evident that tho child must first
grasp tho thought that he is to in
terprot; and it is also necessary that
he shall not stumble over the mere
pronunciation of words. Make sure
then that your class has mastered
the new words in their pronuncia
tion and in their meaning so far as
that can be imparted to them. Thus
equipped tho child is ready to give his
interpretation of tho lesson. It may
not be your interpretation, and
quite possibly yours may not bo that
of the author, but if the child does
interpret tho story, and does not
simply call words, let him try his
wings, and do not be such a bugler
yourself as to clip them by offering
your interpietation as tho only, in
liable one. , 1
But shall the teacher never show
the children how to read? Certainly,
when tho teacher is reading, not
when the child is reading. In the
roview readings or the story read
ings recommended above the teacher
will havo ample scope for all his
powers of interpretation. For tho
rest, he should lead, not carry the
I should. certainly say that it was
the almost universal habit of letting
the voice fall with words of saying,
when what is said follows in the
sentence. Forexamplo: "Ho looked
at its bright sides and its sharp edge,
and said, "Thank you, father, for
this pretty hatchet."
Another mistake not so common
is to raise tho voice at every question
instead those only which ran bo an
swered with yes or no.
These minor details, however, are
of small moment compared with tho
gieatest of all problems hi teaching
reading: How shall we lead our (
children to become great readers of
