Synopsis

Archives of Instruction Nineteenth-century Rhetorics, Readers, and Composition Books in the United States by Jean Ferguson Carr, Stephen L. Carr, Lucille M. Schultz

Both a historical recovery and a critical rethinking of the functions and practices of textbooks, Archives of Instruction: Nineteenth-Century Rhetorics, Readers, and Composition Books in the United States argues for an alternative understanding of our rhetorical traditions. The authors describe how the pervasive influence of nineteenth-century literacy textbooks demonstrate the early emergence of substantive instruction in reading and writing. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, few people in the United States had access to significant school education or to the materials of instruction. By century's end, education was a mass - though not universal - experience, and literacy textbooks were ubiquitous artifacts, used both in home and in school by a growing number of learners from diverse backgrounds. Archives of Instruction suggests strategies for re-reading the texts and details the watersheds in the genre, providing a new perspective on the material conditions of schooling, book publication, and emerging practices of literacy instruction. The volume includes a substantial bibliography of works related to literacy instruction at all levels of education in the United States during the nineteenth century.
