Excerpt from New-World Speller, Vol. 3: For Grades Seven and Eight and Advanced Work
In the writing Of this book the needs Of schools organized on the junior high school plan have been kept in view. The vocabu lary has been so arranged that by the end of the sixth year the la... rge body Of common words has been taught. Practically all the words most commonly misspelled have appeared, and the child who drops out Of school at that point is not handicapped by finding that he has been drilled on words which he never has occasion to write, and has failed to learn the everyday words which he needs. He will, moreover, have gained sufficient power to visualize words to enable him to learn with ease new words. The child who enters the higher grades, on the other hand, will take with him a well-developed power both to study and to learn his spelling lessons promptly and effectively.
An appendix containing special spelling matter has been in setted at the end of the book. Many words required in connec tion with the various school subjects are more or less technical, and the time when they are needed in written work is deter mined by the curriculum Of the subject concerned, and not by a graded spelling course. Since curricula differ, these words can be more readily located when brought together in one place than if scattered throughout the book. Provision for the use Of this matter is made in special lessons.
A teacher's manual giving full and explicit directions for teaching spelling, interesting historical matter, and a bibliography for teachers, is furnished free to all teachers whose classes use these books.
