The purpose of this discourse is to show that a real ability in reading will almost always lead to success in school life. It will make school life happier and more profitable and will reap large benefits in the outside-of-school life of the pupil, both during his years in school and after he leaves it.
It is also meant to show that if the child carries over into the higher grades this training which he gets, it will help him get an understanding of, and solution to, the problems of life. The specific purpose of this discourse aims to show that teaching reading in the primary grades should develop in the child a taste for good literature, to learn how to think, to judge, to solve problems, to outline and organize subject matter, to prepare for leisure and to form good library habits.
Since the laying of the foundation in reading falls to the primary teachers, we hope to show them the very best methods to use in leading these young minds into everlasting truths.
