Methods Used in the Determination of Minimum Essentials


by Lotus D. Coffman 1917

The advisability of providing a curriculum of minimum essentials embodying those common elements which are necessary for mutual understanding and mutual intercourse is no longer a matter for academic discussion. There is scarcely a large school system in the United States or a department or college of education that has not made an investigation of the essentials in some subject of study. Articles and reports bearing upon the general problem are increasing rapidly. A thoroughgoing bibliography shows more than sixty such articles upon spelling alone, and almost as many upon arithmetic, reading, and handwriting. Attention is gradually being turned to the content subjects, and some of the best material now appearing relates to them.
