The history of teaching people to read is explored from the introduction of the Greek alphabet about 3,000 years ago to the present renewed interest in sound symbol relationships. Greek schoolboys were required to learn first the alphabet in order, next commonly used syllables, and then words. English was first written in the Latin alphabet using phonetic spelling until the art of printing reached England about 1475 causing more fixed spellings and thus more reading difficulty. Other topics explored are reading problems and solutions in Germany, early reading experiments in the United States, the word method endorsed by Horace Mann, reading from Horace Mann to Francis Parker, the words-to-reading method popular in Chicago, the word method and the new education of Dewey, public excitement over reading in the United States since the 1880's, the linguistic approach to reading, beginning reading with temporary alphabets, and reading experiments and their results.
