The work as soon as corrected is to be recorded by the scholar in the blank book according to a simple set of rules.  The following rules have been used with good results: 

DIRECTIONS FOR BIBLE BOOKS

1.  Record each lesson the evening after its correction. (Commit the work, as you record, for recital.)

2.  Begin each large division at the top of the page.

3.  Capitalize and underline all headings.

4.  Leave a vacant line between small divisions.

5.  Where questions are used, record both questions and answers.

6.  The books will be graded substantially as follows: 

Correctness of record, 35. (Includes spelling and grammar.)

Fullness of record, 35.

Neatness and care, 10.

Mechanical accuracy, 10.

Originality, 10.

It would be well to place a printed copy of these rules in the hands of each student, to be pasted in the front of the blank book.  These blank books should be examined and graded every four or six weeks and should constitute at least a third of the student’s grade.  The recording of the work in the blank books may be omitted in the community or church classes, at the option of the teacher.  But the record of the work by pencil in a cheap tablet should be insisted upon as absolutely necessary for the best results.  In the academy and college classes the painstaking record in ink has been found by experience to be a most valuable portion of the study.

Let the teacher review constantly.  Drill the students, singly and collectively, in the recitation material.  Emphasize the avoidance of mechanical study.  Secure as much consecutive reading of the Word as possible.  Feed upon rich truths.  Make practical and personal applications of the Word.  “All Scripture is profitable.”
