 About the Book 

Originally published in 1915 as part of a series of handbooks for teachers, this book addresses the teaching of classics, particularly Latin and ancient Greek, in a schooling system which has grown to see the subject as largely irrelevant. JonesMoreOriginally published in 1915 as part of a series of handbooks for teachers, this book addresses the teaching of classics, particularly Latin and ancient Greek, in a schooling system which has grown to see the subject as largely irrelevant. Jones argues that studying ancient languages is best done through the direct method of instruction, with an emphasis on composition in the original languages and study of the classical cultures. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of education, classical education in particular.
