Abstract:

"This volume is intended for use as a textbook in a first course in principle of education. The authors have endeavored, first to select those general facts and principles which will be of most service to typical elementary and high school-teachers. They have tried, secondly, to present these facts and principles in a form intelligible to students who have had few or no other courses in education and little or no professional experience. They have attempted, thirdly, to offer an account based, as far as possible, upon the findings of scientific study. The book is devoted primarily to the purpose of establishing sound principles for guidance of teachers in their most important daily tasks. Its chief topics are, therefore, the major objectives of education, the most insistent needs of education at the present time, the special functions of the school, the characteristics of children from birth to maturity, and the principles which underlie the learning and teaching process and the selection and organization of materials and activities for the school curriculum"--Preface.
