English Composition in the First year of the High School


by Franklin T. Baker & Herbert V. Abbott 1900

It is a curious fact that many an instructor of composition tries to teach his classes how to write clearly and intelligently without organizing his own instruction in any clear or even intelligible fashion. Such a teacher fails to realize that his pupils will make but discouraging progress unless they can look back from time to time and see the series of distinct steps by which, little by little, they have gained more knowledge and greater skill. It is a curious fact, because outside of English there is hardly a course in the curriculum which could lack this elementary degree of organization without obviously lacking the first elements of sanity.
