REMARKS TO THE TEACHER

Complete answers should be given by the pupils.  The simple words “yes” or “no” do not constitute an answer in these exercises; such expressions give no practice in the use of the language.

The teacher should prepare himself thoroughly for each lesson in order to ask many pointed questions relative to the reading matter.

The entire time spent in reading the lesson and questioning the class should not exceed thirty minutes.  Too much detail will only confuse and fatigue the pupils.  Five or six words that present any difficulty either in spelling or pronunciation may be selected from the reading lesson for dictation.  Such words should not be given singly, but rather in short sentences.
