Studies in Elementary School Practice: Introduction

by Frederick G. Bonser 1911

Although the units of elementary school work here offered are fragmentary, it is believed that a unified, underlying basis of organization may be traced through them. The basis for securing this unity lies in motivating all school work by some phase of the child's experience. The child's developing life is a unity. Some need felt by the pupil as a result of environing conditions, or as created by the teacher's direction, is the ideal point of departure for every phase of school work which helps the child in his reconstruction of experience. These examples of work may be helpful in showing how some phases of everyday experience lead out and give real meaning and worth to subject matter which in itself may seem remote from child life.
