Excerpt from Great American Legislators Source Extracts

The next and most important matter is to bring the Students into contact with the origi nal material as often and as completely as possi ble. For this purpose, of course the sources must be accessible. And as far as possible in the hands of every pupil. It should be noted here again that it is not expected that the larger part even of the facts of history can be obtained from these sources, so a good narra tive text must be at hand, and in constant use. The sources are to be used for the purpose of illustrating how the narrative history was formed; but more especially for the mental training which may be obtained from their use. The same document or illustrative extract should be in the hands of every member of the class that each may have the benefit of the criticism of all.
