Excerpt from Studies in English Composition: With Lessons in Language and Rhetoric

The lessons of this book have been arranged with a view to the wants of those schools which have composition as a weekly exercise in their course of study. Most of the high schools and private preparatory schools of the country have such courses, covering usually from three to four years. Any teacher who has attempted to tench composition in these schools has felt the need of a book containing an orderly succession of topics adapted to the age and development of the pupils, together with such lessons in language and rhetoric as are naturally of daily application in their class exercises.

The book now presented to the public is the outcome of a long experience in teaching composition in the high school of the city of Cleveland, Ohio, and its lessons have borne the test of the class-room, not once only, but scores of times.

It is not necessary, nor will it always be desirable, to require each class to write upon the topics in precisely the order indicated here, but in the course of four years all these lessons will fall into fitting time and place.

Two obstacles lie in the way of successful composition work.
