Excerpt from Composition and Rhetoric

This manual represents an attempt to bring together in one volume such textbook matter as is needed to facilitate the teaching of composition in secondary schools. It is based on the following conceptions:

I In the earlier years of the course emphasis should fall on practice in oral and written expression through the medium of simple, interesting, carefully graded tasks in composition, accompanied by such drill in the use of words and the manipulation of sentences as is likely to aid in correcting common errors and lead to fluency.

II In the later years of the course this practice should be continued, the tasks in written composition less frequent but calling for longer, maturer effort; and something, though not too much, of rhetorical theory should be placed before the pupil.

III As the course progresses, practice in expression and practice in the intelligent reading of masterpieces should, within reasonable bounds, be correlated, this to be managed in part through the study of rhetoric.

The chapters of the book are so arranged in unified groups, each group in large measure independent, that the subject matter lends itself readily to rearrangement to meet the varying needs of different schools.
