first made the most of himself was best fitted to make something of others, the teachers of yesterday

One way to motivate interest in vocabulary is to teach students about the origins of the English words we use today in
educated speech and writing. Students in successful English language arts classrooms learn about the way the English
language has developed across time and place. The English language has the largest vocabulary of all the world’s
