First published in 1929, this book is a beginner's guide to the practice of teaching. The preparation and giving of lessons, the function of class teaching, sectionizing and individual work, the art of happy relations between class and teacher, the foundations of school tone, and the tests of a good curriculum are discussed and illustrated from school and training college experience. Use is made of the reader's memories of school-days, and the exercises, an integral part of the book, provide a critical reading. A study of the text as a basis for discussion makes an excellent preparation for teaching.
