Excerpt from New Education Readers, Vol. 4: A Synthetic and Phonic Word Method; Reading for the Third Year This book, which is intended for the use of pupils in the third year, is a practical application of the principles developed in the former books. The selections cover a wide field, embracing history and biography, myths and fables, famous tales and stories, lessons on plant and animal life, character sketches, and descriptions of the customs and manners of people in other lands. Through this wide range of subjects an effort has been made to introduce the pupils to good literature and to lead them into right habits of thinking and reading. The new words, except such as require phonetic spelling to indicate their correct pronunciation, are printed at the head of the lesson in which they first occur and are marked with the usual diacritical marks. In this way the pupil is introduced to the key to the pronunciation of words in the Eng lish language. The teaching of consonants and vowel sounds, and also of the vowel families, terminals, and initials, as employed in the former books, makes this transition from the unmarked notation of words to the marked both easy and practical.
