Booknews
Court (English, Northern Illinois U.) finds that educational innovations from Scotland were the reason that, by the end of the 18th century, college language study in America had expanded from classical rhetoric to include oratory, disputation, English grammatical lessons, and the reading of English literary selections. He describes how the new study was based on moral philosophy, which had connotations of civic responsibility, civic discourse, and ancient school texts. Annotation c.
