From Pictures to Letters : First Steps in the Teaching of Reading and Writing, Hardback Book

From Pictures to Letters : First Steps in the Teaching of Reading and Writing Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literacy series

Description

Originally published in 1937. This book is `an account of the special training necessary for the young boy or girl in letter-making and simple reading'.

The book uses `Basic English', the 850 words of which are included specifically for reference, as a suggested starting point for the teaching of reading and writing, and presents a system for teachers to teach letters by pictures.

The order of the letters in the main section of the book is from simplest form to most difficult with a later section showing them in alphabetical order.

This is a superb insight into educational history and a fascinating early explanation of a now common method.
