This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

PREFACE 

For years teachers, principals, superintendents, and 
school boards everywhere have been wearied by the cry 
of business men, " The boys that you send to us can't 
spell." In Cleveland an educational commission of promi- 
nent citizens made an investigation in 1906 and reenforced 
the cry. But two years later, Cleveland girls and boys 
won their famous victory in the National Education Asso- 
ciation spelling contest of 1908. The methods by which 
the reformation was wrought and the victory won under- 
lie this book, hence its name. 

The intensive teaching of two new words daily and 
the employment of spelling contests, making drill and 
review effective, are the prominent features that led to 
success. There is no reason why similar results may not 
be secured elsewhere by following similar methods, as 
explained more fully in the following pages. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to the thousand or 
more Cleveland teachers, from whose grade lists the 
vocabulary of the Champion Spelling Book has been 
selected. 

Cleveland, Ohio, January 1, 1909. 



SUGGESTIONS TO TEACHERS 

Intensive Teaching. — This book presents about 1200 words 
each year, and teaches 312 of them with clearness and in- 
tensity. Two words are made prominent in each lesson. 
Their pronunciation, division into syllables, derivation, pho- 
netic properties, oral and written spelling, and meaning, are 
all to be made clear to pupils. (Full diacritic marking will 
be found in the alphabetical list at the end of each year's 
work.) The prominent words are to be used in intelligent 
sentences made by the pupils. Center your energy on securing 
mastery of these two words ; the eight subordinate words of 
each lesson are largely review words and not difficult — al- 
though you should make sure that the meaning of each is under- 
stood. Use the markings only to establish pronunciation; 
write the word always as a whole, without markings or division 
into syllables; drill much on enunciation of vowel sounds; 
establish the power to use the dictionary ; frequently make the 
recitation a combination of oral and written work. These 
processes contribute much to the plan of intensive teaching. 

Systematic Drill. — Systematic review is provided through- 
out the book. Each of the ten prominent words taught inten- 
sively in a week is listed as a subordinate word within the 
next two weeks ; included in a spelling contest at the end of 
eight weeks; again in the annual contest at the end of the 
school year; and again as a subordinate word in the follow- 
ing year's work; — used five times, in all, within two years. 
Eighteen hundred and seventy-two words often misspelled are, 
in this manner, intensively taught and effectively reviewed. 

Spelling Contests. — The contests, when properly conducted, 
stimulate the schools to their highest effort. They are more 
effective than the spelling bee, or the spell-down. The contest 

4 



requires all pupils to write all words given, and in addition 
all words which the pupils have actually misspelled. After 
this is done, the papers are collected and the words are spelled 
orally. Eecord is made of oral errors. The papers are then 
marked and teachers report, as follows : 

1. Number of pupils enrolled. 

2. Number taking part in the contest. 

3. The total number of words misspelled in the oral contest. 

4. The total number of words misspelled in the written 
contest. 

5. The total number of errors in both. 

6. The average number of errors per pupil taking part. 

7. The number of pupils making no errors. 

The average number of errors is posted in the schoolroom. 
It may be reported to the principal or superintendent, and 
comparisons made between the same grades of a building, the 
same grades of different buildings, the different grades of 
the same building, all grades of all buildings. Buildings, 
grades, and schools may learn their rank in the community, 
and trace the record to girls and boys who are responsible. 
Thus, all join with the public in a worthy effort for improve- 
ment, centering effort on the poorer spellers. 

Other Features. — It is important that the dominant plan of 
the book be followed closely, by teaching intensively two new 
words daily. The subordinate words will be found arranged 
in helpful groupings. The supplementary lessons will serve as 
aids in teaching sounds of vowels, homonyms, rules of spell- 
ing, abbreviated forms, suffixes, prefixes, use of hyphens, plu- 
rals, dictation work, and word building. The words used in 
the National Education Association contest are given in the 
back of the book. 

Has stood the Test. — This book aims to be a spelling book 
only. The selection of words, their gradation and presenta- 
tion; the system of intensive teaching with methodical re- 
views ; the spelling contests ; and the supplementary features, 
— all have stood the test of class-room use.

Webster's International Dictionary is followed as the standard author- 
ity in spelling, syllabication, and pronunciation. To avoid confusing 
the pupil, only the preferred spelling or pronunciation is given in the 
case of words that may be spelled or pronounced in more than one way. 



RULES FOR SPELLING 

1. Final y, preceded by a vowel, is retained before any 
suffix. 1 Examples : played, playful, monkeys, obeying.

a suffix beginning with i, but is changed to % before any 
other suffix. 2 Examples: drying, copyist \ dried, dries,

Suggestion : Spelling papers should be corrected in the reci- 
tation period and emphasis given to the correct spelling of the 
words misspelled. Oral spelling should move with snap. 
Each pupil should have but one trial on a word. Schoolroom 
devices which stimulate a keen competition have value, when 
used wisely. Do not depend upon them exclusively. Teach a 
little daily, test thoughtfully, drill intensively.

Suggestion: Effective review may be secured by the frequent 
use of two or three pages of Sections III* IV, and V for oral 
drill, without previous preparation on the part of the pupils. 
Note any word misspelled and bring it forward into daily use 
until its spelling is mastered by all pupils. This follow-up 
process should be carried out with all words that are misspelled 
in written work. 

1 Lessons numbered in this manner are to be given Mondays.

Suggestion: Reviews of the supplementary exercises in 
Sections I, II, III, IV, and V will be of service to pupils. 
Frequent drill may be needed on some exercises. Much care 
is required in establishing intelligent use of the dictionary. 
How many pupils are sure that they enunciate the short 
sounds of vowels correctly ? How many are sure that they 
recognize these sounds when the teacher enunciates them ? 
Skill in this work will make the teacher effective with her 
careless, backward spellers. This work should not be spas- 
modic, but daily.

Be useful where thou livest, that they may 
Both want and wish thy pleasing presence still. 

Find out men's wants and will, 
And meet them there. All worldly joys go less 
To the one joy of doing kindnesses. —Herbert.

Supplementary Ex. 3 : Dictation 

Hence, of all people, children are the most imaginative. 
They abandon themselves without reserve to every illusion. 
Every image which is strongly presented to their mental eye 
produces on them the effect of reality. No man, whatever his 
sensibility may be, is ever affected by Hamlet or Lear, as a 
little girl is affected by the story of poor Red Riding Hood. 
She knows that it is all false, that wolves cannot speak, that 
there are no wolves in England. Yet, in spite of her knowl- 
edge, she believes ; she weeps ; she trembles ; she dares not go 
into a dark room lest she should feel the teeth of the monster 
at her throat. Such is the despotism of the imagination over 
uncultivated minds. — Macaulay : Essay on Milton.

Supplementary Ex. 9 : Dictation 
There are men of esprit who are excessively exhausting to 
some people. They are the talkers who have what may be 
called jerky minds. Their thoughts do not run in the natural 
order of sequence. They say bright things on all possible 
subjects, but their zigzags rack you to death. After a jolting 
half-hour with one of these jerky companions, talking with a 
dull friend affords great relief.

SPENCERS 5 PRACTICAL 
WRITING 

By PLATT R. SPENCER'S SONS 
Books i, 2, 3, 4» 5, 6, 7, and 8 Per dozen, £o.6o 



SPENCERS' PRACTICAL WRITING has been devised 
because of the distinct and wide-spread reaction from the 
use of vertical writing in schools. It is thoroughly up- 
to-date, embodying all the advantages of the old and of the 
new. Each word can be written by one continuous move- 
ment of the pen. 

^[ The books teach a plain, practical hand, moderate in slant, 
and free from ornamental curves, shades, and meaningless 
lines. The stem letters are long enough to be clear and un- 
mistakable. The capitals are about two spaces in height. 
^[ The copies begin with words and gradually develop into 
sentences. The letters, both large and small, are taught 
systematically. In the first two books the writing is some- 
what larger than is customary because it is more easily learned 
by young children. These books also contain many illustra- 
tions in oudine. The ruling is very simple. 
^[ Instruction is afforded showing how the pupil should sit at 
the desk, and hold the pen and paper. A series of drill move- 
ment exercises, thirty-three in number, with directions for 
their use, accompanies each book. 



SPENCERIAN PRACTICAL WRITING SPELLER 
Per dozen, $0.48 

THIS simple, inexpensive device provides abundant drill in writing 
words. At the same time it trains pupils to form their copies in 
accordance with the most modem and popular system of penmanship, 
and saves much valuable time for both teacher and pupil.
