The outstanding figure in the conduct of the Latin school, as well as the chief representative of the colonial schoolmaster, is Ezekiel Cheever, who taught for seventy years, the last thirty-eight of them as master of the Boston Grammar School.
Cheever himself contributed little to literature except a Latin Accidence, probably the earliest American school book, entitled A Short Introduction to the Latin Tongue (before 1650).
Another of Cheever’s pupils was Judge Sewall, who has left us in his diary some details of the schooling of his children.

Indeed, by the beginning of the eighteenth century, when Mather wrote his elegy for Cheever, the kind of schoolmaster Cheever represented—the college-educated Latin master who trained male students for leadership in the church and the state, was already dated, challenged by the new job structures in teaching.
Soon after his arrival, Cheever accompanied a small group of Puritan men to New Haven where he served as the first schoolmaster and a leader of this fledgling community, signing the Plantation Covenant, which formalized the township as a Puritan entity, and occasionally preaching in the local church.

 Unit I - The Rules of Latin
Cheever's notes, however, were not original since they relied almost completely on the definitions and models of the nouns, adjectives, and verbs of a sixteenth-century Latin grammar book by William Lily in England.
Cheever, for example, used amare, docere, legere, and audire as his model verbs for the paradigms of the first through the fourth conjugations, and the same verbs are frequnetly used as models in several contemporary grammar books for the same purpose.
Ezekiel Cheever Taught; and which he found the most advantageous by Seventy years Experience." The Accidence has survived, but how it was used in the classroom is an entirely different question.
