Summary:"After attending a series of lectures, a young, inexperienced teacher remarked, "The lectures were very interesting and the principles discussed seemed important, but I do not know any more about putting the principles into practice than I did before." With the above remark in mind, the present volume has been written for the specific purpose of giving definite help to the classroom teacher by bridging the gap between general principles and their practical application. This book is a product of the author's experience as a teacher in directing the learning activities of pupils in the public school and students in the university. The topics treated and the materials selected have been chosen with the one thought in mind--to help the teacher direct the learning activities and individualize them in order to meet the individual needs of each pupil entrusted to her care. For this reason a large amount of illustrative material in the form of experiments, scientific studies, and progressive practices in teaching has been included in the present volume. For the student in teacher training classes this book provides material that will broaden her horizon and stimulate thought and discussion. For the inexperienced or untrained teacher it provides practical materials to serve as thought patterns as she thinks about her own pupils. For the experienced and well-trained teacher it offers a sound basis for constructive study of the problems encountered in directing the learning activities of the pupils in her classes. To summarize, it is the purpose of this book to help teachers direct the learning activities of their pupils through the use of progressive practices applicable anywhere under present conditions"--Preface.
