Studies in Elementary School Practice: Report on Teaching Technial Grammar


by Frederick G. Bonser — 1911

Early in the session of the last summer school at Teachers College, Professor F. M. McMurry asked for volunteers from the class in Elementary School Supervision, S133, to serve on a committee to consider the question, “Shall technical grammar, as a separate study, be taught in the elementary school?” Six women volunteered and near the close of the session made a report. The somewhat advanced standing on the question taken by the committee was perhaps not so surprising as the almost unanimous acceptance of the report as given by the whole class of over one hundred students. The report raises many questions the final answer to which can be made only as a result of several years of careful testing, recording, and comparison of results. It is presented here as an introductory study which may serve to stimulate interest in the general problem of the teaching of English, and perhaps effort here and there to establish the validity or error of its specific conclusions.
