REMARKS TO THE TEACHER

Complete answers should be given by the pupils. The simple words "yes"
or "no" do not constitute an answer in these exercises; such
expressions give no practice in the use of the language.

The teacher should prepare himself thoroughly for each lesson in order
to ask many pointed questions relative to the reading matter.

The entire time spent in reading the lesson and questioning the class
should not exceed thirty minutes. Too much detail will only confuse
and fatigue the pupils. Five or six words that present any difficulty
_either in spelling or pronunciation_ may be selected from the reading
lesson for dictation. Such words should not be given singly, but
rather in short sentences.

These sentences may first be read by the class from the blackboard and
then copied. After new slips have been distributed, the same sentences
should then be written from dictation (the writing on the blackboard
being covered or erased in the meantime). The pupils are afterwards
required to compare their work with that on the board and make the
necessary corrections themselves.

LESSON I

FLAG DAY

In this fair land of ours you can see the Stars and Stripes floating
over every public school. This beautiful flag stands for our country.
Every American is proud of his country's flag. It stands for all that
is good and dear to an American. It stands for Liberty. It proclaims
liberty to all. Every star stands for liberty. Every stripe stands
for liberty. It stands for liberty of thought and liberty of speech as
well.

The first American flag was made in June, 1777, by Mrs. Ross, in the
city of Philadelphia. When General Washington saw the flag, he was
delighted with it. Every American is not only delighted with it, but
he loves the dear old flag. The fourteenth day of June of each year is
set apart as Flag Day.
