THE teacher should not make the children learn this Catechism merely by rote. He should take only one question, or two or three connected questions, for a lesson, explain carefully the answer, and ascertain that the children understand it by putting to them questions on it. He should, where possible, illustrate it by familiar analogies and by stories. For instance, he should tell the children much more fully the nature of the contents of the books named in the answers to questions 4 to 9. The story of each Avatara should be told, simply and brightly under the answer to question 18, and so on. At the end of the lesson, the answer should be learnt by heart by the whole class, and repeated aloud together, special care being taken that every child takes part in this.
