Excerpt from English Composition and Rhetoric: A Manual
As regards increasing the pupils' fund of expression, the English teacher can do comparatively little. The reason is obvious. The command of language is a grand total, resulting from the practice of a life; a. Small fraction of that total is all that can grow up within the limits of a Course of English Composition.
With respect to the other aim - the discrimination be tween good and bad in expression, the case is different. Much of the necessary instruction can be condensed into principles. And may be impressed by carefully chosen ex amples. The teacher is here a trainer, and can impart in a short compass, what, without him, would be acquired slowly, if at all. It is this, accordingly, that I account his principal vocation.
