Education by hard, cold definition is a drawing, or leading out process-a growing into, from the Latin verb "educo." It would seem then, on the surface anyway, that any process or technique for teaching of reading or any other part of the curriculum would have been a gradual outgrowth of preceding techniques, philosophies or procedures. When news media and public communications systems, therefore, douse a reading and viewing public with buckets of intellectual baptism purported to be new and revolutionary, it would seem advisable for professional people to become acquainted with factual backgrounds of these so-called "new" techniques before becoming "band-wagon jumpers."
