About the Author
William Holmes McGuffey (1800-1873) was a "born" educator. Beginning by teaching his younger brothers and sisters, William McGuffey accepted his first teaching position at 13 in a one-room school with 48 students. After graduating from Washington College and being ordained as a Presbyterian minister, he taught moral philosophy at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio for almost ten years. It was during this period that McGuffey wrote and compiled the Readers that made him famous. Later McGuffey rose to the rank of university president, serving Cincinnati College and Ohio University. He spent the final third of his life teaching moral philosophy at the University of Virginia.

It comes in a very sturdy cover, with nice, sturdy binding, pages that will stand up to wear-and-tear, and classic stories and poems that I consider essential in helping my student to develop strong language arts skills. It contains spelling words, dictation, as well as pronunciation aids in addition to the stories and poems.
I look forward to using this in our upcoming school year.
