Letter Writing as a Course
St. Johns County Public Schools
January 6, 1900
Novel Plan of Education
The school children of St. Johns county are being most successfully trained in letter writing in a novel
manner in a method inauguarated by County Superintendent Reynolds. The pupils write him individual
letters each month, without aid from their teachers, and he carefully revises them, pointing out all
errors and calling the attention of their teachers to the same. The teacher point out the mistakes which
are, of course, guarded against in subsequent letters. The improvement visible since the earlier efforts
is little short of wonderful, and most gratifying to all concerned. Letter-writing is an art as well as
penmanship, and this course of instruction will benefit the average scholar as much as any one branch
of learning. The ages of the children sending these letters are from 9 to 14 years, and their
productions would shame many of their elders.
