Elements of Practical Pedagogy

Excerpt from Elements of Practical Pedagogy Education is often assumed to be mainly a process by which knowledge is communicated or acquired. It is, indeed, all this and much more, for it aims at developing the powers of the mind, training the will, and forming character. A work on education must, therefore, include the elements of psychology and ethics as well as a detailed account of the canons Of pedagogy and accepted methods of teaching. In the following pages, principles are stated and discussed in connection with the practical treatment Of the elementary branches taught in the class - room. Where the abstract is introduced, the concrete application immediately follows. As the school is to be a nursery of good citizenship, moral teaching accompanies the intellectual, the conscience being formed in accordance with the precepts of religion. Attention has been paid to the vitally important subject Of hygiene in order that the teacher may be fully alive to his responsibilities in regard to the well - being and comfort of his youthful charges. The value of gymnastics and physical drill as aids in the art of education, has not been overlooked. Though the present volume is necessarily small, it is believed that no subject of importance has been omitted. A fuller development will be given in a compendious work on pedagogy which is in course of preparation and which will be ready for publication early in the summer.
