This study attempts to combine, in one book, some hints and suggestions for good writing, based upon sound principles and written primarily for the Prairie View student, with a varied collection of errors taken from compositions, letters, and other papers in the folders of thirty-five Freshman Agricultural students taking Freshman English. Supplementary material has been added in the form of a classified bibliography of periodical literature for the teaching of English.
In Part I a classification of errors is given. Part II consists of a test composed of common errors made by students in the class. Letter-writing is given special notice in Part III, and a classified bibliography is given in Part IV. The course outline will be found in the Appendix.
The writer has endeavored to give to each part the proportionate space and the kind which will perhaps gain the attention of the average student.
No thought is held by the author of these pages that new material is being added to what has previously been written but she is convinced that many students coming to the college have had little preparation, and that the usual presentation of rhetoric and composition leaves many of them struggling with strange material. It is not, however, the purpose of this treatise to give instruction in English Grammar. It is hoped and expected that those who take up this treatise for guidance will have received a good groundwork in grammar.
