Excerpt from A German Reader and Theme-Book It is t expected by the authors that any one pupil or any one class will do all the exercises provided in the Reader. We do t advise anything of the kind. To at tempt that would be to retard unduly the pace of the reading itself, which is after all the important considera tion. What is intended is to provide a quantity of good material for drill, which can be used variously by teachers, according to their individual preferences, or according to the circumstances such as the size and maturity of classes. Those who prefer to conduct the class-room drill in German will make large use of the Fragen and igre the Themes, except for written work at home or for review. Those who instruct classes of considerable size can use both Fragen and Themes - or portions of either, selected and distributed at pleasure either for colloquial practice or for exercises in writing German. In the beginning the preparation of the Fragen will mean little more than the memorizing of the answers from the German text. As soon as possible, however, this process should be replaced by real freie Reproduktion, and for this reason the set Fragen are discontinued after the seventeenth selection.
