Primary Schooling [Tidbits]

If you're interested in what your ancestors were forced to study in school, you may be interested in the 19th Century Schoolbook Collection hosted by the University of Pittsburgh.

What child isn't immediately captivated by such works as "Analytical fourth reader : containing practical directions for reading, a thorough method of thought-analysis, a critical phonic analysis of English words, and a large number of new and valuable selections in reading"?
