Dual language instruction, nonsense syllables, the role of central government in local education, the beginning of the textbook publishing industry, and regional differences in education practices are elements that have existed in American education from its inception. An examination of the textbooks used by early missionaries and teachers provides insight into these elements of literacy instruction. Participants will examine primers and textbooks from 1660-1900. This presentation includes a close look at the primers and textbooks used in early literacy instruction in the colonies, the early United States, and the nineteenth century.
