Helps for the Teaching of Caesar: Introductory
by Gonzalez Lodge - 1902
The proper teaching of Caesar depends in large measure upon two considerations: the previous preparation of the pupil, and the preparation and attitude of mind of the teacher. In most of our schools the course in Latin extends over four years. Occasionally it is restricted to three, and more frequently it is five or six, but in the vast majority of the schools it is still limited to four years with five or four recitations a week. In a course so constituted it is customary to begin the Bellum Gallicum either at the beginning or shortly after the beginning of the second year. Now the ease and success of the teaching of the Bellum Gallicum in this case will depend very largely, from the pupil's point of view, upon the kind of work pursued during the first year.
