S we journey along the high-way we must, now and then,
refresh ourselves by turning into some by-path, and
seeking the soothing and exhiliarating influence of some shady nook or rippling stream that we may again pursue the great journey upon the high-way with keener interest and more buoyant spirits. So it is in the pursuit of knowledge. Unless some sustaining influences are kept at work, we soon become fatigued by the arduous task before us; at first we fall to the rear; then we become exhausted; finally we are disgusted, and depart from the path to return no more. This has been the experience of many a pupil in the study of Grammar. It is the duty of the teacher to surround his subject with such environments as will interest the learner in the scene before him, and will arouse him to an appreciation of, the wonderful field of knowledge upon which he is entering. He must be allowed to indulge in these pleasures in order that the drudgery connected with this, as well as every other, science may not become a burden. To this end we have adduced the following pages.
The OUTLINES give the pupil a birdseye view of each subject, will afford a plan for recitation, and will facilitate reviews.
These outlines should be reproduced on the blackboard and such modifications made as the text book in use, or the advancement of the class, may render necessary.
A great deal of recreation may be found in the SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS. These are the environments which surround the subject with a charm that fascinates the learner. These should lead to discussions which will broaden the field and urge the student to original investigationimparting life and vitality to the subject.
The sentences parsed and diagrammed have been selected with a view of placing at the teacher's command a variety of examples illustrating the various uses of words, and their relation to each other.
