Baker and Carpenter Language Readers

LEADING FEATURES

1. Teachers agree as to the value of good literature as the basis of the English work. But the classics are often either not related at all to the work in expression, or the relationship is indicated in a vague and desultory fashion.

The Language Readers make the relationship close and vital, without rendering the work in expression pedantic, or killing the enjoyment of the reading.

2. Each Reader has some dominating interest in its subjectmatter.

In the first two books, where the main problem is to teach the beginnings of reading, much must be sacrificed to interest and simplicity, and these books deal with simple story and poetry, mostly of folk-lore and child-life.

In the third book, the dominant element is the fairy story and the folk-tale.

In the fourth book, the animal-story and the tale of adventure are given the leading place. .

In the fifth book, the great myths of the world, the hero-stories of the nations, are retold.

In the sixth book, a selection of stories, poems, and essays serve as an introduction to general literature.

3. The standards of good literature and the interests of the normal child have been kept in mind.

Great care has been taken that the books shall be good readers, independent of the language work introduced.

The language work has been so handled as not to make it obtrusive in appearance or impertinent in comment.

4. In grading the reading and language work, the editors have had the assistance of able and experienced teachers from both public and private schools.

5. Illustrations have been freely used.

Color work — by the newer processes -- adds special charm to the four lower books.

CHANCELLOR'S GRADED CITY SPELLERS

CHANCELLOR'S GRADED CITY SPELLERS constitute the first attempt to provide spelling lessons by grades, from the time that the spelling book is first placed in the hands of the pupil until the completion of the grammar school course.

CHANCELLOR'S GRADED CITY SPELLERS are published in two different forms, bound in full cloth, one series being in seven books, a book for each year from the second to the eighth year of the elementary school course; while the other series consists of two books, the first volume grouping together the work of the second, third, and fourth years, and the second volume embracing the work of the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth years.

The general plan of the series includes a review of drill words from the lessons of the preceding year, daily advance lessons, the use of all important words in suitable sentences, frequent reappearance in the sentences of the difficult words, syllabication of all spelling words, and systematic reviews at regular intervals.

The words to be learned are presented in three different ways: (a) Alone, not syllabicated, for recognition as they ordinarily appear.

(6) Combined with other words in sentences, thus revealing the significance of the new words.

(c) Syllabicated, for the analysis of the literal elements.

The series is rich in all the ordinary forms of word study. Prefixes and suffixes are treated with clearness and completeness. Synonyms, homonyms, and antonyms are matters of exercise at frequent intervals, and the various forms of word-building based upon the relation of stems and roots are presented with a fullness not surpassed in any other spelling series.
