IN CHARFE OF TODAY'S ISU,
A. H. McDOUGALL.
Latin in the Hiqh School.
"A Partial Inventory of the Ped-
agogical Values of Latin," was the
title of the paper read by Prof.
Drake before the Pedagogical Society
Monday evenisg. The following
extract of the paper was furnished
to the DAILY by the secretary:
Education was originally mainly
classical; even now the classics retain
an honorable and important place in
our curriculum. The advantages
usually claimed for classical study
by teachers of the classics are: disci-
pline, culture, and training of the
observation, and judgment. This
last is the practical side, appreciated
by the practical man, who sneers at
the former as theory.
On the other band, classical study
has its disadvantages. In ths first
place, memory is neglected. It is
generally conceded that classical stu-
dents have no memory left by the
time they have reached their sopho-
more year in the university. This is
a result, partially, .of the reaction
against the old memory-education.
Both the old and the new view of
education are false. It is true that
a student has not made a subject his
own when he has studied and learned
the words; but it does not therefore
follow that he knows a subject when
he has gone through with the logical
processes involved without remem-
bering them. Further, the assimil-
ating and coordinating powers of the
mind are not trained by classical
study. The best among the classical
students find it hard to go through a
book and get the salient points.
Can we not, while retaining our
grasp on what classical study does
give us, remedy its defects? The
only recent advance made in teach-
ing Latin is embodied in Hale's "Art
of Reading Latin." In this the at.
tention is turned from the logical
processes of the study of construc-
tion, and stress is laid on the art of
reading the language. But this is
not sufficient. We hear a good deal
about "enriching the classical course."
This can best be done by emphasiz-
ing the side of Roman life that has
the most significance for the modern
world. The aim of Latin study is
the -ideal reconstruction of Roman
civilization; the best instrument for
this is the study of Roman constitu-
tional antiquities. It is better than
the study of private antiquities be-
cause: Systematization is easy; mate-
rial is at hand; preparation for teach-
ing can be made in this country;
itarticulates with our present classical
course. Cicero is an excellent basis.
As to method: A text-book, with
proper supplemental helps should be
used. It should be given its about
20 lessons, and probably best at the
begiuning of the Cicero year.
The story of Roman constitutional
antiquties has a future; it is fruitful
in suggestion for the student; it re-
lates the ancient to the modern world.
