In 1835, a small Cincinnati publishing firm asked McGuffey to create a series of four graded readers for primary-level students. McGuffey's Readers were among the first textbooks in the United States designed to become progressively more challenging with each volume. They used word repetition in the text as a learning tool, developing reading skills through challenging students using the books.

Sounding-out, enunciation and accents were emphasized. Colonial-era texts had offered dull lists of 20 to 100 new words per page for memorization. In contrast, McGuffey used new vocabulary words in the context of real literature, gradually introducing new words and carefully repeating the old.

McGuffey's readers became part of America's heritage.

This heritage combined with new technology makes teaching and learning at home intuitive and accelerating.



Do you know how you wish your child could read joyously and independently? What we do is to furnish your child videos and workbooks, so that they can learn on their own--and we start with free videos on YouTube, using the most valuable method ever developed.
