READINGS AND RECITATIONS,
INTRODUCTORY EXERCISES IN MODULATION.
R. & T. ARMSTRONG,
The following Poetical Selections are a small contribution to Reading and Recitation. Some of the best of the old standard pieces have been retained ; while, to impart freshness and interest, others have been inserted of a more modern date. They are intended to be taken up daily in the classroom, when spare minutes occur. It is only by continual practice that good Reading and Recitation can be acquired; and we should like to see some of the time which is bestowed upon the infinitesimal details of grammar and analysis devoted to these desirable accomplishments. As it is absolutely necessary that the pupil should first have some idea of the management of the voice, preliminary exercises have been given
for that purpose.
