PREFACE.

The plan of "Graded and Higher Lessons in English" will perhaps be better understood if we first speak of two classes of text books with which this course is brought into competition.

Method of One Class of Text books. In one class are those that aim chiefly to present a course of technical grammar in the order of Orthography, Etymology, Syntax, and Prosody. These books give large space to grammatical Etymology, and demand much memorizing of definitions, rules, declensions, and conjugations, and much formal word parsing, work of which a considerable portion is merely the invention of grammarians, and has little value in determining the pupil's use of language or in developing his reasoning faculties. This is a revival of the long endured, unfruitful, old time method.
