This Fourth Reader is for Advanced Students.
McGuffey's Readers emphasize on lessons designed to build character. Questions and a Spell-and-Define word list follow each lesson. All new questions, intended to aid oral discussion or to provide written assignments, were written from the understanding and viewpoint of today's child. The Spelling-and-Define list suggests words for spelling and vocabulary development.
A unique feature of this edition of the Fourth Reader is the note preceding most lessons. Each note helps the reader understand the lesson's meaning, significance or historical setting. This volume completes the series of ECLECTIC READERS first written and compiled by William H. McGuffey.
