Popular Astronomy: Being the New Descriptive Astronomy

By Joel Dorman Steele | Go to book overview

Never let a pupil recite a lesson, nor answer a question, except it be a mere definition, in the language of the book. The text is designed to interest and instruct the pupil; the recitation should afford him an opportunity of expressing what he has learned in his own style and words.
