In Four Books

By EDWIN L. MILLER

Principal of the Northwestern High School
Detroit, Michigan

This series marks a radical departure in methods of teaching English. It is flexible, direct, and informal. In line with the modern tendency in education, it emphasizes the practical aspect, the why of learning to write and to speak good English. Original work is encouraged in both teacher and pupils, and especial attention is given to training in oral composition.

While designed for independent use in the four years of the high school, the books will admirably supplement a formal treatise on rhetoric and composition.

Book I

Teaches the freshman how to write a correct, coherent, readable letter, how to speak fluent, graceful, precise English, how to gather material and criticise his own work, and begins the study of description.

Book II Reviews description, teaches the sophomore the fundamentals of narration through news writing, and takes up advertisement writing.

Book III Begins advanced composition in the junior year, Ideals with various methods of narration and description, and takes up exposition in detail.

Book IV Reviews exposition and develops the subject of argumentation-oration and debating-in the senior year.

The author has devoted several years to the perfection of the plan embodied in this series. Not only has he succeeded in rounding out a live course of English instruction from the teacher's point of view, but he has presented each chapter in such a way that the pupil realizes its importance to him.
