Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from McGuffey s New Fifth Eclectic Reader: Selected and Original Exercises for Schools From no source has the author drawn more copiously in his selections, than from the Sacred Scriptures. For this, he certainly apprehends no censure. In a Christian country, that man is to be pitied, who, at this day, can honestly object to imbuing the minds of youth with the language and spirit of the Word of God. The student of the Bible will, it is believed, be pleased to find a specimen of the ele gant labors of Bishop Jebb, and some specimens of sacred poetry, as arranged by Dr. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from McGuffey s New Fifth Eclectic Reader: Selected and Original Exercises for Schools The great object to be accomplished in reading as a rhetorical exercise is, to convey to the hearer, fully and clearly, the ideas and feelings of the writer. In order to do this, it is necessary that the feelings of the author whose language is read, should be infused into the breast of the reader, and then alone can they be properly and fully expressed. In accordance with this view, a preliminary rule of importance is the following: Rule I. - Before attempting to read a lesson, the learner should make himself fully acquainted with the subject as treated of in that lesson, and endeavor to make the feelings and sentiments of the writer his own. Remark. To accomplish the purpose indicated in the rule, every lesson should be well studied beforehand, and no scholar should be permitted to attempt to read any thing, which he can not easily understand. When he has thus identified himself with the author, he has the substance of all rules in his own breast. It is by going to nature that we find rules. The child or the savage orator, never mistakes in inflection, or emphasis, or modulation. The best speakers and readers are those who follow the impulse of nature as felt in their own hearts, or most closely imitate it as observed in others. Exercises. - What is the chief design of reading? In order to do this, what is first necessary? Repeat the rule. For the purpose of being able to observe this, what must be done? From whence are all rules derived? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
