Let the child read what it

correctly at a eonver$e$, tB ,y ijftjn, a-
gain, (for we dp think' this fireat evil of
compelling children to pronoucea arords
for years to which tbey attach .no meaning
whatever, too much ' neglected,) never let
cnuaren read wbat tbey do not understand
If there are words in the . lesson of which
they do not know the meaning. let the dic
tionary, or lb a Itached glossary, ot the
teacher deSne them, Never let the- vounir
reader pronounce a word without obtain-
ing the meaning the author attached to it.
The teacher should Trvouentlr Question
his clars on what has been read, that he mar
know how far the readers have comprehen
ded their author and ascertain what mean
mg they connect with the indivvdual words.
If we should ask adults, and evcu liberally
educated men, to dense some worlds of the
most common use, tbey would besate, and
probably be unable to give any thing like a
concise, correct definition. Jn .this, the sys
tems of instruction in all our 'literary insti
tutions are rniseiably defective Educated
men arein the constant habit of using wad
10 wnicn tbey rttach a connective raeam
indeed obtained from usage, but to wh
they would be unable to give a concise
ijiimun. mis evil is universal inouriMK
tnary schools, and ia seen to a greater oricss
extent ia all -our higher institutions up to
the professional college. It n no wonder
that men mafc auch an imwmrwrJotce of
words, that they use many that are equivo
gbI, and that they are so frequently isisun
ders'ood. Ignorance of the correct mean
ing of words does not permit them to select
su.-b isexprcas what tbey intend to commu
nicate. There is in our district schools another
bad practice which sives almost alt. the
achooU . vei y.unnaUiiaL and., disagreeable
habits. I refer to that high, uniform pitch
of voice the young reader is sure to strike
into. 1 do not remember ill it 1 ever heard
a ktll read jm natural conversational
tone of voiCTiiamMtiticti ieacl
era should , be. caicful to .have their pupils
rean m natural lone?, and to nave tne tones
varied according to the sentiment.. Teach
ers seldom pay any attention to articulation;
and the consequence is that but very few an
It is very rarely that we hear a reader or
speaker give each It-tier of the word its full
sound. Very frequently indeed one-half
of the word is dropped, or clippod, or in
a u di My " ii it IcredT" This d fe ct in articula
tion 'keeps the mind 'constantly directed to
the wuida, that it may make out what they
arc, and the attention is diverted from the
subject. This practice is also very unpleas
ant lo the car. Teachers should make
their pupils give each letter and sj liable its
diMmct sound. hen this is done, there is
a force and inctning in I ho word which is
never felt when half uttered.
If I was asked what rules I would give
to children in our common schools, that
they might loam to read with ease, coirect
nejs, and imprestiiveness, I would say, only
three, and these aro ver. rirnple. I should
not exulain the philosophy of I ho human

intonations. Hut 1 would aaj, undenttmd
what you read rend in a natural, convr.

teachers will see that their pupils practice
these three plain rules, they will have the
pleasure of bearing good readers. pulrxcl

LEARNING TO READ.
The teacher should confine
his pupils but a short time to words mar
shalled into ranks, as tbey stand in the col.
urns of the spelling book, conveying not
one idea, of any meaning whatever. There
is too much mere verbiage in our district
schools- Childien are confined to these
unmeaning words for two or three years.
Teachers should see the folly and the ty
ranny of this; tbey have seen difficulty; for
it is with great labour that they keep the
minds of -the pupils on the lessons. As
60on as children have learned some of the
powers of letters, and (KMscsses facility and
correctness in joining syllables into words,
they should be permuted lo read easy sen
tences. These sentences should be com
posed of words of one or two syllables, aud
contain a familiar and pleasing idea. Now,
for the first , tune, the child begins to feel
pleased with its studies; all before this has
been unintelligible aigaaaad combiuaUou
of signs. But now it finds these signs con
ductors of Uiuugfitof sojnethfftf that in
structs and pleases. The child is now
gratified with its book; for
wttitifl iWeff- sufficient to draw and fix" the
attention. At presnt there are a few books
whtt-h are simple without being filly, and
well adapted to children Such should be
put into their hands. After the pupils are
familiar with the Unsuae and contents of
tiiese books, others containing senttnet-s
more complicated, anJ words co uponed of
a greater number of avllalilcs should be giv
en to them.
When the child can pronounce
words of two sytla1i.1efc"
irput into-the Lugtish Reader. A fi; book
for a literary tnau, but entirely unfit for
children. If the pupils, at ihis stage ol
learning, ar nolsofoitunatcastobo exlulted
into tins 'class of honour.' they are privi
leged by reading in the back, purl ol the
spullingbook, or in the Columbian Orator;
reading equally unintelligible as fiat in the
English Reader. Thus the child, from the
time it commences goin" lo school, till its
parents require its constant labour at borne,
spells and reads, wiites and rehearses words
and sentences or words, and whole volumes
of words without ever trying to obtain a
clear, distinct, useful idea from them. The
ihill r.vr ftiinbtf rkf lifirifr miiiBti,-
what it has just r-d- If q-" of this
nature -hould be put, the child would bo
as incapable of answering as if H had been
reading hieroglyphic. The pupil at school
does not think that books are read because
they have a meaning, but because they have
words to be pronounced and sentences to
be radensed or emphasized. TUu whole
effort consequently is not to find out the
meaning of what he reads but to finish his
verse without 'missing a word.
