Excerpt from Practical Lessons Use the English, for Grammar Schools

Throughout this work the aim is to lead the pupil to see for himself - to cultivate his powers of observation at every step.

From the first, the learner's attention is directed to the use of language as the expression of thought. His study is not confined to detached sentences. Selections from some of the best writers are introduced, that, from the study of these selec tions, he may learn certain facts about the English language, and at the same time form a taste for good literature. Many of the lessons are designed to awaken a love of nature or to deepen some moral impression.

Each new topic is brought out by means of oral instruction. This is followed by a written exercise, aiding the pupils to remember the facts learned, and also training them to habits of independent work.

In every lesson, a definite task is laid out for the pupil. As the child remembers best that which interests him most, care has been taken to bring each exercise as near as possible to the child's own experience.

The reasons why certain forms are right and others wrong are, for the most part, omitted. The aim is to lead the pupil to use habitually the right expression.

Incorrect forms for correction are not given. It is believed that incorrect forms should not be placed before children. The child is led to avoid common errors by being trained from the first to use the correct forms.

While nearly every lesson is a lesson in oral or in written composition, or in both, Special lessons in composition are also given. In these lessons, the pupil is led to see clearly, before he is required to express his thoughts in writing.

Special attention is given to letter-writing and to business forms. Care has been taken to make this part of the work practical.
