Excerpt from The Conduct of Composition Work in Grammar SchoolsThere is generally no work in a grammar school more unsystematic than work in composition. Its conduct is too often left to the judgment of individuals, without reference to a general plan. In this way some parts of the subject are sure to be slighted in a greater or less degree, if not overlooked altogether.Composition work should have its own time and place in a working program, in order to insure regularity of occurrence and frequency of performance. Spasmodic work will result no more successfully here than in arithmetic, grammar, music, or any other study. It should articulate throughout a school as other subjects do, if any progress is to be expected from year to year.The object of all composition work should be growth in the two lines of matter and form. We must steer our course as skilfully as may be between the Scylla of unpunctuated, formless matter, and the Charybdis of punctuated formalism. In the past we have sacrificed too much to form, and the result has not seldom been a dread of composition writing on the part of the pupils and despair on the part of the teacher.Our first aim, then, must be to induce the children to write spontaneously, in order that we may know where to help them.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
