Strang and Bracken

Submitter: Recently weeded from my community college library, this 1957 treatise on making better readers needs no introduction. The photos speak for themselves. It recommends films, slides, and records and reference works published as early as 1924. Find those in WorldCat if you can. Pedagogically and practically, this book is truly Old School…..(388 items in WorldCat!!)

Holly: Wow, now that’s “vintage.”
