Excerpt from Graded City Speller: Sixth Year Grade; Compiled From Lists Furnished by Principals and Teachers in the Schools of Six Cities
The plan of this spelling-book is to present useful words in lessons of literary value and interest. The words selected for the text have ... been compiled from the lists of practical principals and teachers. Most of the quotations also have been approved in actual classroom experience in language teaching for several years.
Each word is presented, first, in a sentence or para graph, which, usually, is a quotation from the work of an author of high standing; then, it is syllabicated for the analysis of the literal elements; and, lastly, it is repeated several times in reviews. By this method, each word is developed in association with a context that in itself is worth reading, and is then stamped upon the visual memory by a sufficient number of repetitions to insure, with all ordinary pupils, its accurate recollection. Whether the drill be solely oral or both oral and written is a matter to be determined by the authorities of the schools where the series may be used. I am myself in full accord with Dr. Thomas M. Balliet, Dean of the School of Pedagogy, New York University, in his Opin ion that written drill increases the probability of correct spelling, because it associates the motor nerve elements with the mental activity; writing, therefore, tends to establish automatically correct spelling. Of course, we seldom need to know the true spelling of a word save when we ourselves must write it.
