Teaching Cleveland

Lesson 8

ADDITION: Lesson 1

To Instructors. In going through the book the first time, the learners may have the book open before them. Each pupil reads the question distinctly, and then answers it. In going through the second time, the books may be closed; in this case, the teacher should read the question directly, and the pupil then answer it. The learner, in answering, should repeat the numbers to be added; thus, the last part of a question first to be answered -- one and one are two. Each table should be accurately committed to memory.
