SUGGESTIONS TO TEACHERS.

clearly ascertain their meaning and use. Attention should also be directed to the historical references, the figures of speech used, and the force of modifying elements. More generally, so direct the study of the pupils that they may grasp the thought and feel the sentiment to which they are to give expression in reading

7. Require pupils quite frequently to make lists of words found in the reading lesson for the day, to indicate the sounds of the letters by the diacritical marks used in the table of elementary sounds, and to spell the words in the lists phonetically.

8. Make an analysis of each lesson, using as models the analyses of Lessons X and XXXIX. The questions propounded should be prepared with great care, be concise in expression and unmistakable in meaning. The answers given by pupils should be prompt, and expressed in good language. It is an excellent practice to require pupils to make analyses while studying their lessons.

9. Be careful not to neglect any style of composition. The number of lessons in prose and verse, during a term of school, should be nearly equal; but the poetic selections should be read with reference to the sense rather than to the rhythm. A "sing-song” or monotonous style of reading poetry should not be tolerated.

10. To encourage a spirit of inquiry among pupils, enlarge upon the topics suggested by the reading lessons.
