Something About Teaching thc
Young Idea How to Shoot.
MR. EDITOR : It gives me pleas
ure to reply to the courteous re
marks of Mr. Fuller. Of coarse he
used the title of Professor extrav
agantly before my name, but who
can not endure a small amount o?
irony mingled with other thoughts
in BO fair a reply? In justice to
Mr. Fuller, I will statu that he is a
"Professor," and, so far as I have
been able to learn, he does honor
to his profession.
In the first place, thegenlleman
brings forth his argument in fa
vor of using the fourth deader in
stead of a primary history in his
school. His reason for this is,
that he must have a book in which
is expressed a variety of feeling,
in other words, give the child a
psychological course along with
his reading. I hope my friend
does not think that the child is
able to read according to his analy
sis of reading when he (the child)
hs s reached the fourth reader. To
read as my friend has his pupils
read is a rare accomplishment even
among scholars. By-tho-way, I
dare say my friend's pupils cannot
prououuee difficult words in the
fourth reader, much less awaken in
the auditor the identical feeling of
the author. Mr. Fuller, you get
rare accomplishments ahead of ev
ery-day necessities. I think you
would do better to teach your pu
pils how to pronounce words: cor
rectly, read grammatical^, etc.,
before you give them practice in
?elocution, and'the subtle points
of rhetoric. For this purpose, you
will find Swinton's first history of
our oountry Sufficient. You can
?question them on what they have
read and find out whether they
have understood it. Then you will
be saving time, teaching your pupil
to read, and teaching them histo
ry. A live teacher can make histo
ry interesting to a pupil, and he
will take more delight in reading
than he would in a fourth reader.
?Save time, my friend! A boy or
?girl in the country cannot attend
school ten months in the year.
Again, my friend tackles rae
on my method of teaching lan
guage. Really, I believe I con
vinced him that the easiest way
to learn language is. through
its correlative science. I think I
could see in his argument against
me on, at least, that point he was
arguing against his own convic
tions. Says Mr. Fuller. "The very
fact that good usage determines
the law of language makes clear
the fact we learn to use good lan
guage by using it." Yes but, Mr.
Fuller, I now ask you, sir, what
determines the law of good osage??
Before a word or expression can he
in good use it must be used by
classical and literary writers. Let
millions of your unscientific ar
tists use it. and it must stay in the
back-ground as a vulgarism, or
localism, or some other ism until,
wrested from its obscurity, it is
placed by the hand of science
upon some page of literary art.
Don't you see, Mr. Fuller, that art
is the application of science, and
when you tell your pupil that so
and ?O is correct English, and that
he will be safe in using it as you
say, he is after all only applying
in good faith the science , he gets
from you as his author; but you
see the difficulty of the pupil lies
in the fact that he must remember
I everything you tell him, unless
you tell him why these things you
[are telling him are scientific. I
say it is a dead lift to the memory
to learn language lessons that are
void of the science of grammar,
j While I am with Mr. Fuller in say
ing that the memory is one of the
first faculties to develop, yet I say
I that faculty can be overtaxed in
childhood, and the child given
mental indigestion. We want the
child's mind disciplined right in
its early years. It is not the
amount of knowledge gained in a
certain length of time that should
be called progress in a school, but,
cn the other hand, the parent
should ask the teacher to what ex
tent has he endeavored to discip
line bis child's mind. It is not
the child who can recite the most
rules for good usage from memory
that knows, best how to use our
language, but it is he who recites
few rules, and then tells you why
he r?cit?e them. I know we make
our art more perfect by practice,
but we wish to know why we prac
tice after we begin the study of
language. I do not object to tel 1
:ng the child a few things, such as
are contained in S?Yiuton's Word
Book about the use of correot
words, but Ido not believe in
crowding the childi memorv full
of a lot of stufif that surely will
Mr. Fuller says that I do not
understand the idea of "learn to
do by doing;" and shall we take
him as authority on what il means.
I know not what olhers may do,
but, as for me, after reading his
explanation of it, I cannot take
him as authority on that expres
sion. What I think it means, and
what every other person I have
?ever heard speak on it, except Mr.
Fuller, thought it. meant wa6, the
learning of an art by practice, that
is, by doing a thing over and over
j you naturally learn to do it with*
lout any scientific knowledge of
what you are doing. For example,

rule, and then solving several

may in this way become quite pro
ficient in solving a certuin kind
of examples while, at the same
time, he does not understand one
thing about what the rule means,
or why he, by multiplying one
number by another, and then di
viding by another number, avrives
at a certain result. This, Mr. Ful
ler, is what I meant by the ex
pression, "learn to do by doing,"
and it is what in my opinion eve
ry other author means by it except
? As to the argumeut put up
against my attack on the gentle
man's use of standard literature
in the fourth grade, I consider that
he succumbed in the attempt. He
says that I seemed to think that
he meant the study of philology,
and so I did in part, for Mr. Web
ster says that the usual sense of
the term literature embraces histo
ry, grammar, rhetoric, logic, criti
cism, languages, etc., Of course,
I took the gentleman at his word,
and not at any specific meaning of
his word. But th?: gentleman says
he has his pupils to study litera
ture for about the same reason 1
would have mine study history ;
therefore it ceases to be literature
and becomes history.
And now Mr. Fulier, I must
again thank you for the efforts you
have made in throwing some light
on education, and for the courte
ous treatment I received at your
hands. I hope you will not c^ase
your labors for the education of
the rising generation, because our
happiness as a nation depends
upon our degree of enlightenment,
and our degree of enlightenment
depends upon our education.
I must say with all respect thal
I am surprised at the vicious man
ner in which "Semphronicus"

say that, sifting each one's argu
