The Language Courses in the Secondary Schools of the Thirteenth Century as Measured by Twentieth Century Standards
The first part of the study merely records what these secondary schools of the thirteenth century taught in their language courses, their method of teaching, the text books used, the cause of the rise or decline of interest in the subject and the most famous centers of study for each language. The second part considers the content, aims and methods of teaching languages in our secondary schools of New York City in the present century. In the third part a comparison of the two centuries is made with reference to the material equipment, time schedules and aims and methods of teaching languages. The similarities and differences are pointed out and accounted for. The conclusion is then drawn and the contributions of the thirteenth century to the study of languages, are set forth.
