Excerpt from How to Teach Elementary SubjectsThe art of teaching is based upon a knowledge of children, of society, and of how one is to be adjusted to the other. For a knowledge of children we have the sciences of educational psychology and educational hygiene. For a knowledge of society we have sociology, or the social sciences in general, and educational sociology in particular. Direct experience with children and in society and first-hand study of and participation in life are indispensable to those who would guide life effectively as teachers. For helping the immature adjust themselves happily to our complex social life, we use among other instruments the subjects of study. We call the methods of teaching each of the various subjects of the school special methods as distinguished from the general methods of teaching all subjects.Our chapter contributors have been chosen from among the leading specialists in all the "common branches," most of them having written considerably elsewhere on their respective subjects. It has been the aim to give briefly such a statement of minimal essentials of matter and method as will not only be of assistance to many actual and prospective teachers and to parents in homes who attempt to teach their children, but will lead on to the monographic literature on each subject. With the very rapid changes being made in the elementary-school subjects by the modern scientific methods of educational research and with a teaching population of more than a half million, one-fourth of whom are new to the profession each year and four-fifths of whom have not had normal-school or college training, such a volume, we feel, may be of great service. Professional progress and the wide-spread application of recent scientific discoveries will be facilitated.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
