NORMAL EDUCATIONAL SERIES

OF

SCHOOL AND COLLEGE Text-Books. .

“Every child that comes into the world has a right to an education."
"The dearest interest of a nation is the education of its children."

The art of Teaching, as well as all other arts, is making very rapid progress in this very progressive age. The remarkable growth of Normal Schools, organized to instruct in the best methods of teaching, and employing as professors the most able and advanced educators in the country, has given an immense impetus to the advancement of this most honorable and useful of professions, and almost revolutionized the whole art of teaching. These great changes create a necessity for text-books adapted to them, and the publishers of the above series have taken great pains to meet this necessity. By the aid of their improved text-books, the work of the school-room, instead of being a drudgery, becomes pleasant to teachers and pupils, and they as well as parents are delighted with the rapid progress made with them.

Ex. traordinary care has been taken in grading every lesson, modeling rules and definitions after a definite and uniform plan, and making every word and sentence an example of grammattcal accuracy.
