upon the subject of "Primary Read
ing." Perceiving must precede pronounc
ing. Tho child's eye must be able to
look ahead of what ho Is pronounc
ing. Most children do not hear
enough reading. Reading Is thinking
the thought of the pago and also
feeling it. Hesitancy in reading
shows a mechanical pronounclation
of words. To tho child, reading is
like translating a foreign language.
Tho child's resources are Instincts
and Abilities. Tho child should be
able to express himself. They must
bo ablo to talk well before we can
hope to have them read well. He
then spoke of the methods of teach
ing Primary reading, the alphabetic
method, teaching the letters of the
alphabet first. The phonic method,
teaching tho sounds of which the
words is composed. The phonetic
method, teaching use of diacritical
marks. The Word method, teaching
words at sight. Tho child is unable
to do much studying by himself,
therefore most of the child's studying

A paper upon "Primary Geogra
phy" was then read by Miss Miller.
A short discussion followed. Miss
Palmer read a paper upon "Tho
Teacher's Problem." Tho teacher's
problem Is tho pupil, tho material
with which tho teacher has to work.
A teacher should bo careful of her
language, personal appearance and
habits so that a good example may
be set before tho pupils. Mr. Koeh
ler then discussed Miss Palmer's pa
per. Ono of the most Important ex
amples the teacher can set before the
pupils Is her use of correct English.
Do not use unnecessary adjectives
and interjections In their presence
Never use sarcasm. It is more than
harmful to tho pupils. It has a ten
dency to mako the child sullen and
they may form a habit of being sar
castic with their companions.
