A Handbook for English Teachers
A Handbook for English Teachers
Excerpt from A Handbook for English Teachers: For Use in the Texas High SchoolsThis pamphlet is based upon Herrick and Damon's New Composition and Rhetoric, Newcomer's American Literature, Newcomer's English Literature, Twelve Centuries of English Poetry and Prose, and the Lake English Classics. It meets the College Entrance Requirements for 1915-1919, and supplements the "Course of Study for the Public Schools" of Texas, outlined by the State Superintendent. In order to prove concrete and definite, this manual considers the work week by week - not mechanically it is hoped, but suggestively. The authors have drawn freely upon the helpful suggestions found in A Handbook for English Teachers by S. R. Hadsell and A Teacher's Manual by Prof. George L. Marsh, and desire to acknowledge their indebtedness to these authors.Purpose(a) To outline in detail a plan for the English work during the four years of the high school; (b) To assist the pupil who will leave school when the course is finished as well as the pupil who will go to college; (c) To assist teachers in doing a few things thoroughly, also to help them unify and fit together and emphasize the work of the four years.Means to This End(a) Suggesting appropriate material (including subjects of local interest as well as subjects based upon the Classics) for abundant practice in oral and written composition; (b) Relating the fundamental principles of composition and rhetoric to a few standard classics; (c) Suggesting an outline of the work, arranged in weekly units; (d) Offering (it is hoped) a few practical suggestions upon: (1) The relative amount of time that should be given to the text (Herrick and Damon), to the composition work, and to the Classics; (2) The Classics to be read in class; also those for home reading.Since systems are a means to an end, and are of less importance than the work to be accomplished, the wise teacher will use such points in this pamphlet as appeal to him, such points as he may adapt to the needs of the school and his pupils. He may have three years of English instead of four.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
