This work will be found to justify its title; it is a work written for teachers by a teacher.

It contains “Outline Methods” – grounded on explicitly derived principles — on Geography, Arithmetic, Primary Reading, the Training of Language Power and Grammar. These Outlines, in the light of the established principles, will prove of more worth to the teacher than volumes of mechanical ways and devices and detailed “ methods.” Extra Cloth. Illus. 350 pages. Price, $1.25.
