Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: ...consult or use some such model series as Greene's Graded Grammar Blanks, or Richardson's Graded Language Exercises. The ability to parse and analyze sentences is no guarantee cf ability to successfully use language.--Hiram Hadley. Every school exercise, even the dryest Arithmetic, may be a language exercise, if the class are always kept on the alert to notice (and correct when at its close corrections are called for) any and all errors in pronunciation or Grammar. If a pupil can give an answer in fewer or better terms than those used by a, class-mate, let him always be encouraged to do it. The habit of using correct language thus formed, in conversation and recitation, will lay the foundation for the higher work of composition.--B. G. Northrop. In addition to the number of exercises already given by which the teacher may profitably interest his class, the following are given, taken from the author previously quoted: Have pupils point out resemblances and differences in things. Describe pictures as seen or remembered. Describe natural scenery. Describe one's town--one' county---one's state--one's country. No one ever changed from a bad speaker to a good one by applying the rules of Grammar to what he said.--Whitney. As a drill for the memory, let the analysis of sentences be written without reference to the book. After correcting a set of written exercises it is a good idea for the teacher to read aloud to the class some of the papers that have errors, for the class to detect. Also some of the perfect ones, that they may know what is right. Or, supply simple predicate to given subject. Supply enlarged predicate to given subject. Supply enlarged subject to given predicate. Construct a sentence containing a phrase. Change an adjective into a phrase....show more
