Synopsis
Before the reading of The Courtship of Miles Standish is taken up for class work, the teacher should make a careful study of the historic facts with which the poem deals, in order to give a correct interpretation of this great masterpiece. While The Courtship of Miles Standish will appeal to the ordinary reader, yet a study of it, such as may be required for the class-room, requires some preliminary study on the part of the teacher. This critical study should be of a two-fold character: first, the foundations upon which the author built his story, and, second, references to poems of other authors, similar in character, with which portions of The Courtship of Miles Standish may be compared and contrasted. It should be kept in mind that the background of The Courtship of Miles Standish is historical. The teacher should be thoroughly familiar with the history of the Pilgrims in order to get in the atmosphere of the poem. In teaching any classic, it should be the aim of the teacher to implant in the minds of the pupils a strong desire to read that particular story. (S ee page 102.) OUTLINE FOR CLASS READING A classic improves with each reading, and this poem should be read by the class at least three times. First Reading The first step in the reading of any classic is to read it as a whole for the purpose of permitting the pupil to get the thread of the story.
