Excerpt from Composition Rhetoric Literature, Vol. 1: A Four Years' Course for Secondary Schools; First and Second Years I. This book is based upon the belief that a human being learns by imitation, by repetition, and by challenge to increased exertion. II. It includes an abundance of carefully chosen extracts: - 1.To be studied closely under a teachers guidance. 2. To be copied, verbatim, in order to gain practical acquaintance with good models which will teach punctuation, spelling, diction, sentencen structure, and development of thought. 3. To be enjoyed for subject-matter and style, to suggest further reading in the same book, to broaden interests, and to stimulate thought along new lines. III. It follows a special arrangement in presenting the subjects: Narration, Description, Exposition, and Argumentation, for 1. A return to a subject, after a pause, gives new zest and a new point of view. 2. Practice in other subjects is essential before a student can get proper perspective regarding narration, etc. A student must realize that these four "forms of discourse" are really vitally related, not completely isolated.
