Excerpt from The Teaching of Spelling

The statutes of the state require, and the public demands, that spelling be taught in the public schools.

Intelligent persons realize that the faultless spelling of English words is an art difficult to attain, much more so for some persons than for others. Nevertheless, failure to spell correctly is commonly regarded as a sign of illiteracy.

The purpose of this monograph is to offer constructive suggestions to teachers concerning the teaching of a subject in which there is so much popular interest. It is believed that good teaching - not merely hearing lessons - will bring about good results in this, as well as in the other activities of the school.

Good teaching is dependent upon the size of classes, upon the number of words taught, upon the judicious selection of words, upon the manner of presentation to the class, or the plan of study with the teacher, upon the pupils' independent methods of study, and upon the method of testing or conducting a recitation; but above all, it is dependent upon the interest which is aroused.

Good teaching also involves the ability of the pupils to recognize symbols. Many pupils are poor spellers because they do not clearly see the forms of the words. Defective eye-sight, may be the cause of this.

Spelling is sometimes taught in a perfunctory, mechanical way, with little variety or life in the instruction. Often the lesson is aimless and tediously monotonous. Such teaching is partly responsible for poor spelling. To arouse interest in spelling, to create a desire to excel, to relieve it of monotony, to make the instruction a real teaching process, and to bring variety into the exercises, should be the aim of the teacher.

This pamphlet is not a course of study, neither is it a plan for a teacher to follow closely in her daily work. It is a statement of general method in the field of spelling for the elementary grades.
