Excerpt from Junior High School English Material. - The grammar material in this series consists of sentences from everyday speech, containing thoughts int nesting to young people. The composition work aims to fix correct English id job and to eliminate from oral and written speech both colloquialisms and solecisms. Studies made by investigators in the school systems of several American cities show that the same errors of speech recur everywhere among pupils; and these studies, as published by the National Society for the Study of Education, have been of service to the author. Special attention is given to oral composition as the most fundamental need in English expression. The composition work is so arranged as to motivate the grammar. The material for composition is in part baaed on recommendations of the committee of the National Education Association of which Mr. James Fleming Hosic was chairman. Added to these are themes which the times demand, such as those related to the w vital subject of thrift and other ideals of good citizenship. Arrangement. The psychological rather than the strictly logical arrangement is employed; thus, parts of speech are taught along with parts of the sentence in order to strengthen both by the association. The greatest care is taken to make the work conform to fundamentals of the learning process. The gradation of lessons is by such easy steps that the book almost teaches itself. Methods. - The method is that of the laboratory - learning to do by doing: always something to do with Ups or pencil registers something learned. This makes the work interesting to active children.
