Suzzallo, Henry

Henry Suzzallo - 1912
OUR PROVINCIAL VARIATION IN TEACHING METHOD A careful survey of the field of teaching methods indicates a variation in modes of teaching which can scarcely be sanctioned by the versatility and freedom which they offer the teacher. In fact, the use of a great variety of methods is scarcely characteristic of the average teacher's practice though he has often repeated the just claim that he requires a large range of choice in dealing with children.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
Our teachers are peculiarly sensitive to the misspellings of their pupils. In geography, history, or mathematics they are fairer to themselves and the children in making allowance for inevitable imperfections in the results of their teaching. In spelling they forget that their pupils are not grown but growing; and a lapse or error becomes a source of exaggerated discouragement or irritation.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
TEACHING THE PRONUNCIATION OF WORDS How the Problem of Pronunciation Enters So long as the words taught in spelling are those the children use, there is no problem of pronunciation except to correct such mispronunciations as have stolen into their vocabularies.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The purpose of this study is to present a survey of contemporaneous tendencies in the teaching of spelling. It is a summary of the situation in which the elementary teacher finds himself, with some explanation of the forces, traditional and radical, which have moulded it.

page I. THE NEED TO STUDY OUR INSTRUCTION IN SPELLING 9 1. Our Sensitiveness to Spelling Defects 9 2. Resulting Complexity of Methods 10 3. The Need of Evaluation 10 4. A Preliminary Survey of Present Methods 11

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
It is obvious to any careful professional observer that the status of instruction in spelling has greatly improved within a quarter of a century. An increase in the types of teaching employed for both old and new purposes has been a source of fruitful selection. Old methods have given way to new or have persisted against innovations that had less logical claim to success.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
In the beginning the subject of spelling was closely associated with the subject of reading, a relation somewhat difficult for the modern trained teacher to understand since spelling, like penmanship, is technical equipment made necessary by the demands of written expression.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE SELECTION OF SPELLING MATERIALS The source of the words taught in the spelling periods has been largely suggested above. The changing relationship of spelling to the other school subjects unavoidably affects the spelling vocabularies utilized.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE GRADING AND CLASSIFICATION OF WORDS The standards which have determined the composition of spell ing lists to be taught to all children are the school's rough approximations to the actual social demand which says that each child should know how to spell the words in most frequent usage among ordinary adults. Rough as these approximations are, they are recognition of the social factor in the construction of the course of study in spelling.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
ASSOCIATING MEANING, PRONUNCIATION, AND SPELLING The Three Factors to be Associated Ability to spell includes more than the power to recite in their conventionalized order the letters composing a given word. It involves an accurate command of that fact in connection with two others, namely, meaning and pronunciation.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
TEACHING THE MEANING OF WORDS As spelling has improved in its methods of teaching, it has steadily given a larger place to the development of the meaning of words within the spelling exercise.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
TEACHING THE ORDER OF LETTERS The Central Problem in Spelling To get the child to write the letters of the word in their proper conventional order,—that is the central problem in the school subject of spelling. As discipline, it was present in school long before the more or less independent school subject of spelling appear

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
DEVELOPING THE PUPIL’S INDEPENDENT POWER Teaching Children to Study Supplementary to Instruction The teacher has more functions than teaching a child to know, pronounce and spell a certain group of words with persisting accuracy. In addition to instructing the child, he must show him how to study; in this case, how to get the meaning by himself, sound and spelling of words that are unfamiliar to him.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
TESTING SPELLING Testing as an Exclusive Activity Several decades ago the spelling period was almost completely given over to testing the efficiency of the children’s spellings.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE CORRECTION OF MISSPELLINGS The Weakness of Previous Corrective Teaching The purpose of all testing is to discover the spelling mistakes of children. But discovery of error necessitates the correction of the fault. The older practice of teachers was strong in discovery and weak in correction.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE QUANTITY OF FORMAL INSTRUCTION Fewer Words Assigned per Lesson The change from the testing to the teaching of spelling in the class period has had a more or less immediate effect on the quantity of words assigned to the child for mastery within a given day, week, or year.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
It is the function of this study to convey some notion of the methods employed in teaching mathematics in the first six grades of the American elementary school.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
It has been suggested that all teaching methods represent adjustments to several variable factors in the school-room situation. Teaching method is never, or should not be, just one thing.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
At the very beginning, it was suggested that many factors enter into the nature of our teaching methods. There was occasion to show the influence of varying aims on the spirit and manner of instruction, for differing aims inevitably amend any presentation of facts, in school or out.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The Tendency toward Shortening the Time Distribution Several decades ago arithmetic, as a formal subject, was begun in the first school year and continued throughout the grades to the last school year. This is no longer a characteristic condition, much less a uniform one.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE DISTRIBUTION OF OBJECTIVE WORK Object Teaching is generally current: The use of objects in teaching arithmetic is current in the elementary school. Particularly is this true in the lowest grades of the school, in primary work.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
It has already been suggested that there has been considerable waste in the use of objective teaching in the lowest grades; and that the recent tendency has aimed to correct it.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
Some of the marked changes which have occurred in the methods employed for the presentation of number to children have already been mentioned in connection with the objective teaching of arithmetic.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
It is not alone the first stages in the acquisition of an arithmetical process which have received attention in the re-organization of teaching methods, though, to be sure, the problem of first presentations has in recent decades been given the most attention.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
THE USE OF SPECIAL ALGORISMS, ORAL FORMS, AND WRITTEN ARRANGEMENTS The methods of teaching arithmetic are influenced not only by the aims of such instruction, but by the peculiar nature of the matter taught.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The existing methods of teaching arithmetic in the American elementary schools are exceedingly varied. This is due to many causes. The democratic system of local control, as opposed to a centralized supervision of schools, has increased both the possibility and the probability of variation.

David Eugene Smith & Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The evolution of the teaching of primary arithmetic extends over a period of about two hundred years, although numerous sporadic efforts at teaching the science of number to young children had been made long before the founding of the Francke Institute at Halle.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
OUTLINE PAGE I. THE SCOPE OF THE STUDY 9 1. Function of the Study to Trace General Tendencies 9 2. Teaching Method is a Mode of Presentation 9 3. Distinct Uniformities Exist Among its Variations 10 4. The Methods of Public Elementary Schools are Representative 10 5. Elementary Mathematics is Mainly Arithmetic 11

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The existing defects in objective teaching are not restricted to a false placing or distribution. The quality of the teaching use of objects is likewise open to serious criticism.

Henry Suzzallo - 1911
The teaching of arithmetic is usually classified under two as­pects, formal work and applied work. The formal work deals mainly with the memorization of fundamental facts, processes and other details of manipulation.

Henry Suzzallo - 1904
There has been much complaint against the teaching of history in the elementary school, particularly the teaching of American history in the grammar grades. The charge has been frequently made that one of the richest fields of human knowledge has, in our teaching practice, degenerated into a mere mnemonic drill on long lists of historical facts, which have too often borne little relation to each other and conveyed little meaning to the learner.
