Excerpt from The Sorosis, Vol. 24: October, 1917-June, 1918
The methods of teaching also are in a chaotic condition. There are about five general methods of instruction employed by various teachers and instructors throughout the country. First is the visual method which is employed more extensively than the others and is used by practically all teachers. The teacher points out an object in the room, names it, and asks the class to repeat the name after her. Many texts are so constructed as to bring this method into use in the first few lessons. While this method is frequently carried to the extreme, still it is valuable in the teaching of names of objects and the expressions concerning them; it is practically useless, however, in dealing with expressions of motion and with abstract ideas.
