It would be well to place a printed copy of these rules in the hands of
each student, to be pasted in the front of the blank book. These blank
books should be examined and graded every four or six weeks and should
constitute at least a third of the student's grade. The recording of the
work in the blank books may be omitted in the community or church
classes, at the option of the teacher. But the record of the work by
pencil in a cheap tablet _should be insisted upon as absolutely
necessary for the best results_.
