GINN and COMPANY
Thank God for the pace of it,
For the terrible, keen, swift race of it;
Fiery steeds in full control,
Nostrils aquiver to greet the goal,
Work, the power that drives behind,
Oh, what is so good as the pain of it,
Thank God for the swing of it,
For the clamoring, hammering ring of it,
On the mighty anvils of the world.
Oh, what is so fierce as the flame of it,
Thundering on through dearth and doubt,
Work, the Titan; Work, the friend,
Draining the swamps and blasting the hills,
Rending a continent apart,
To answer the dream of the Master heart.
Thank God for the splendor of work!
The Teaching of Reading
By Georgia Alexander.
NOTE: Miss Georgia Alexander, author of the Child Classics Readers, will present the underlying principles of the teaching of reading, together with the method found in the Child Classics Readers, in a series of three articles.
Someone has said that he who would plow a straight furrow must look far ahead. In no department of life is this more true than in the teaching of reading: our most efficient tool for the making of citizens. The first requisite, therefore, and particularly at this crisis in the world's history, is that we have a teacher who in her own personality is not only a citizen of her town, of her county, of her state, of her country, but of the world. This means that her interests are in Armenia, in Jugo-Slavia as well as in Indiana. I have used the feminine pronoun advisedly and for two reasons: First, we have a majority of women teachers in the state; and second, in all fairness, it must be admitted that men as a result of suffrage, assume a deeper sense of responsibility than women in world-wide affairs. The morning paper, by tacit consent, is handed to the man of the family. There are notable exceptions in both sexes.
Should not each of us ask of ourselves, "Am I truly a citizen of the world?" realizing that we cannot guide until we have reached the goal. In spite of the fact that we teach in government schools, county or city, and that we know these schools will shortly be under federal control at least partially, yet many of us are more or less in the mental attitude of the farmer's wife in that clever little drama, "The Clod," who, when the daily routine of her life was broken into by both the Union and
the Southern soldiers, exclaimed: "Me and Jim ain't got no country. We've only got this farm." Are you, my fellow teachers, side-stepping the most vital issue before you? Or do you daily read of the happenings in Washington, in Tokio, in Paris, with the consciousness that you in your own person are the conduit between your pupils. and this great world? It is now quite the custom in the grammar grades of all forward-looking schools to discuss current events weekly, often daily. I plead for more: Six-year-olds can be given an upward look and come to realize that
Had we complete consecration to our opportunity to create attitude, the world would be transformed in one generation.
I have begun with the result: the goal which we must keep before our eyes if our furrow shall be straight. Now how shall the teaching of reading be made to contribute to the making of citizens? Certainly not by the indiscriminate reading of newspapers and magazines. Swamped with current literature, mostly indifferent in quality, we find the real problem not so much what to read as what not to read. Yet through all this flotsam flow the great streams of human life. How shall one acquire the judgment and the constructive imagination to select the vital, the permanent, the positive? In other words, how become an artist and a prophet? There is but one method: to know the great, the immortal of the past as preserved in the classics of literature. Here only do we find a stand
