There is a growing awareness of the fact that English is ineffectively
taught in many of the schools of America. Too many graduates of high school,
and even of college, are, according to their employers, noticeably deficient in
their ability to use the language correctly and effectively. We realize at T. M.
I. that the ability to speak and write correctly, clearly, and forcefully, and the
knowledge of good literature are assets of tremendous value to any young man,
hence, we place at the top of the list of our academic objectives a strong pro-
gram of instruction in English.
The course of study is planned to emphasize the development of the
fundamental skills of reading, writing, and speaking the language and to meet
the requirements of college entrance. It embraces the study of grammar, usage,
theme writing, letter writing, spelling, vocabulary development, and literature.
Courses in corrective reading are offered for cadets who have reading diffi-
culties. Spelling and public speaking are emphasized. fSee below.j Webster's
"Collegiate Dictionary" and an excellent series of vocabulary workbooks are
used in all classes. Thoroughness and accuracy are stressed throughout the
Each cadet reads and studies in class and in outside reading as many of
the better books and classics as can be included in the course. The splendid
collection of well-chosen books which makes up our library is effectively used
both for required and voluntary reading. Orientation in the use of the library
is given to all new cadets during the first or second week of school each year,
and half of the study hall periods of each cadet are spent in the library. Use
of reference tools and all library aids to study and research is taught. Records
reveal an unusually high circulation of books per student.

ment continued. English literature studied. A Shakespearean play and an English novel read in class,
SPELLING AND PUBLIC SPEAKING
All students in Tennessee Military Institute are required to study Spelling
and to have practice in Public Speaking. Spelling classes are taught on Wednesday
and Saturday of each week. The practice in Public Speaking is secured through
oral reports on research work done in the Library in classes in English and His-
tory. While these courses do not count as a unit toward a diploma, we regard
them as very valuable in preparing our boys for their work following school days.
Mental growth finds its beginning in the power to concentrate and to reason.
A man's ability is determined by the extent to which these powers have been
developed. The relation of the study of Mathematics to this growth and the
mental discipline derived from a mastery of its principles justify the importance
which we give this subject in our course.
Every cadet in Tennessee Military Institute is required to study Mathematics,
four full years' work being required in the course leading to Diploma "A". For
Diploma "B", designed to satisfy the requirements of the less exacting colleges,
this requirement is reduced to three years, two in Algebra and one in Geometry.
For further information concerning Mathematics requirements, see outline of
courses on page 57.
We believe that no man can consider himself broadly educated without
some acquaintance with the record of human achievement in the generations
that have preceded him, no matter how well informed he may be concerning
contemporary developments. An adequate course of study in the Social Sciences
is essential to proper educational development. We are offering currently a com-
prehensive course composed of Civics, World History, Geography, United States
History, Government, and Economics. These offerings give the student a choice
of courses suitable to each of his four years of high school work.
A knowledge of the Bible is one of the greatest educational assets any man
can have in addition to the moral and spiritual values resulting from the study.
In an earlier paragraph, we have expressed our conviction that character develop-
ment is the most important work of a school. No other course offered in this
school affords so great opportunities for laying the foundation of good and
