Description

Excerpt from Everyday Classics Seventh Reader American Life and Literature for Grammar, Grades and Junior High Schools This volume of the Everyday Classics is prepared with a two-fold purpose: (1) to introduce young people to a part of that common cultural material which is now a part of' our inheritance, and (2) to put them into sympathy with some of the feelings and ideals which are in a special sense Ameri can. The importance of unifying our national life has not for more than a century seemed so urgent as in these last few years. The school, and particularly the literature read there, have long been recognized as among the most potent means of building such national unity. It has been our purpose also so to choose and arrange the material of the book as to provide for that real study and reflection, that growing consciousness of power that should come from the courses in the highest elementary grades and the Junior High School. The administrative segregation of the Junior High School from the grades below it should be based on a course of study differentiated, but not too sharply, from the work of the preceding year. One way of doing this is to bring like elements in the work into groups constituting larger units. Most of the selections in this volume will suggest to the alert teacher other books and articles on similar themes.
