Briggs, Thomas H.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1969
The author explores the potential contribution of humanities study to the development of "a richly satisfying way of life."

Thomas H. Briggs — 1951
The author attempts to show that the curriculum of secondary schools presents the one most important problem confronting the public responsibility for the education of youth.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1944
It is undeniable that in the secondary school period the stresses and strains are at their height. Some of these are the result of conditions outside the control of the school, in the home or in the other environments, but probably the majority are due to the difficulties that the adolescent naturally encounters in growing into adulthood.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1941
There is certainly an advantage, even a necessity, in our knowing what is the American way of life, the way that we have followed, unknowingly perhaps, since we imbibed the spirit of this country in the family circle, had it beaten into us by our fellows on the playing field, and finally learned in all our social and business intercourse that it is the one thing that makes for freedom under the restraint of our peers and for the greatest happiness to the greatest number. That we may perpetuate this way of life we must more definitely know what it is; that we may be more loyal to it we must appreciate its superior blessings.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1941
“The Schools and the Defense” was a Symposium on Defense Activities, held at Teachers College, Columbia University, August 6, 1941. Paul R. Mort, Chairman.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1937
The attempt to introduce science into education has fallen far short of the success that reasonably was expected of it. The author presents several reasons for this.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1935
There can be no doubt that everyone, each within his own competence, should develop and consciously organize orderly, consistent, and integrated attitudes based on fundamental truths, beliefs, and ideals. Those who attempt to influence the large programs for the future must themselves have a directive philosophy.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1935
The emotionalized attitudes that one has are tremendously influential in determining the interpretation of what he observes, hears, or reads.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1934
There is abundant stimulus to prepare a new program for secondary education, for in recent years criticism of its procedures and of its product has been increasing and cumulative. Though in a way the public has been proud of its secondary schools, it has never understood them, and it is now increasingly raising questions that are embarrassing.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1934
The author sets forth some of the details and some of the principles to be considered in reaching an answer to the question of what constitutes a good secondary school.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1933
THE obligation of the state to support education is as fundamental as its will to perpetuate itself. Even though the government be that of an absolute monarch or dictator, schools and the other means of education are recognized as necessary for the maintenance of the state and the prosperity of its people.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1933
In making curricula and in administering them one must inevitably face the question of indoctrination. It has been popular for a long time unthinkingly to deny that education should indoctrinate pupils or that it should indulge in propaganda, but despite the fact that these words generally have a bad connotation, that is what every teacher to some extent does every day.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1932
This is the outline, the barest outline, of a vision of secondary education. It is not a statement of what is, but a dream of what may be.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1932
THE teacher of general science in the junior high school needs to be a scientist rather than a specialist. It is assumed, of course, that he should have a foundation of knowledge as a result of formal training; but in addition he should have acute curiosity and wide interests in a great variety of things scientific. If he has these, he will be a growing person.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1932
The objectives of general science in the junior high school are presented and discussed.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1931
JEREMIAH, the son of Hilkiah, had a habit which philosophers have always praised but which his people did not like.1

Thomas H. Briggs — 1931
THERE was once a man who set up a school to train leaders in the church. Being wise, he admitted only those boys who by inheritance were likely to have unusual natural gifts.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1931
All is not well with higher education. Occasionally—and in these late years with increasing frequency—some Jeremiah who has an ideal and who looks calmly at the facts has been critical, has raised questions that should be disquieting, and has indicated weaknesses which should alarm all intelligent citizens.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1931
The members of the Department of High School Supervisors have the power to bring about change by attempting the task individually and at the same time exerting their influence to have representative competent bodies appointed to do a more satisfactory job than any individual can do. And when the principles and special functions are agreed on, this group more than any other single group of men can popularize them and bring about concerted action looking toward their application in practice. This is a great opportunity and a great obligation.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1928
PRACTICALLY all discussions of secondary and higher education emphasize the liberalizing function. Often, perhaps usually, this is identified with the cultural.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1926
Secondary education in the United States began in early Colonial days and was for a long time dominated by the traditions of European schools, particularly by those of England. It overlapped the elementary schools and was largely private, under church control, supported by fees, chiefly for boys of the privileged classes, and with a single curriculum based on studies originating in the Renaissance.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1925
For a long time in the United States a position in the schools, either of teaching or of administration, was for college men a common stepping-stone to some other vocation.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1924
A novelty of importance to one phase of education is the music memory contest. It has long been a popular game for small groups to guess the names of musical compositions when snatches were played;

Thomas H. Briggs — 1923
Most tests are for the purpose of measuring achievement. But another type of great importance is intended to reveal to pupils and teacher alike the need for instruction. In its best form it is diagnostic, indicating the exact points at which each pupil needs help or practice to bring him to a standard of reasonable accomplishment.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1922
When in 1912 the Hillegas Scale for English Composition was published teachers were divided in their attitude toward it.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1921
The activities of a school are determined by its purposes. If these are to teach pupils to do better the desirable things that they will do anyway and to reveal higher activities, at the same time making them desired and to an extent possible, then the excursion becomes important.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1921
From time to time teachers of English, either as individuals or in associations, have set forth formal details of composition the mastery of which they declare essential for all pupils who complete the elementary grades.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1916
When doctors disagree, the layman is emboldened, after considering the facts that they present and he observes, to draw his own conclusions.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1913
The grammar that is commonly taught in elementary schools to-day has a long and unbroken descent to us from its origin in Greece. Though in every age called grammar, it has not always had the same content and purposes; both indeed have changed so often that definiteness demands a careful explanation of the term whenever it is used.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1913
A discussion of the general claims for grammar. Tests for grammar are given.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1913
In order that some data might be obtained regarding the effect of grammar, formal and informal, as it is ordinarily taught, the tests previously described were given to pupils in five public schools in Illinois. These towns were selected so as to afford as fair contrasts as possible.

Thomas H. Briggs — 1913
A discussion of conditions secured at the Horace Mann School.
