In analyzing the folders of a section of freshman agricultural students of the first half term of 1937-38, the work of twenty-five students was studied. These students apparently had a poor background in mechanics of usage. Most of them were from rural areas. This thesis contains only a study of the work of those students whose work proved satisfactory.
The course outline designed for these students covered various phases of study. Letter-writing was the first unit of work studied by the class. Six class periods were alloted to it.
Bible literature was the second type of material which was studied. Twelve class periods were given to this phase of work.
Then the class turned its attention to the study of grammar and mechanics. Twelve class periods also were given to this study.
Exposition was the next unit of work which the class considered. Under this phase of work investigative papers and reviews, chiefly on periodical literature, were written. Nine class periods were alloted to the former and five to the latter.
Conversation was the next phase of study. Three class periods were given to it.
Finally, the class turned its attention to a study of experiences in oral delivery. Three class periods were given to the consideration of this.
