"Spelling is chiefly a habit of the eye..."

Here's a great book from 1884:

First lesson:

"To the pupil.--Look at each word till you can turn away and see a perfect picture of it in your mind. Study down the columns, then from left to right."

(Array of words follows.)

They really knew how to teach back in the old days.

Do you have to be good at spelling to be a good writer? Not necessarily, at least not in Oregon public schools?

I think spelling, grammar ,and structure are as important as content. IMHO, this is just another way to push kids through the public school system.
 
Your thoughts?
