GIFT OF THE
UALIFY PUPILS by daily vocal drill, by special aid as required,
and by general and systematic instruction, for each lesson. A
Reading which does not demand preparatory labor is not adapted to the needs of the class.
The Lessons of Part First should be used for Reading Exercises. Require the class to commit to memory and recite the most important principles, definitions, and examples, both separately and in concert. Review the lessons, and do not commence Part Second until the pupils master them.
PART SECOND is not simply a collection of readings, but also a dictionary and cyclopediä, containing Needful Aids which are to be turned to profitable account. Never omit the Preliminary Exercises ; but require the pupils to pronounce, spell, and define the words in the notes. Often require them to commence with the last word of a paragraph in the reading and pronounce back to the first. Also direct their attention to the Accents and Marked Letters. Call into exercise their judgment and taste by requiring them to determine what Principle of Elocution each reading is best adapted to illustrate.
BEFORE THE FINAL READING, be sure that the pupils understand the lesson. Adopt a simple Order of Examination, and let them give the leading thoughts in their own language, without formal questions : for example, first, the title of the piece ; secondly, the words liable to mispronunciation, both in the notes and the reading ; thirdly, the objects mentioned, and the facts concerning these objects ; fourthly, the narrative or connected thoughts, and the portion illustrated by the picture, if any; and fifthly, the moral or what the lesson teaches.
THE INDEX TO THE NOTES is of the utmost importance, and ought to be employed daily. Make special efforts to give pupils great facility in its use.
AUTHORS and PUBLISHERS are cautioned against the use, in their publications, of the original material, classifications, arrangements, methods, and other features of the Independent Readers.
