Symonds, Percival M.

Percival M. Symonds - 1960
It is the purpose of this discussion to review some of the findings of psychology that deal with the origin and development of personality, to discuss their implications for education, and to suggest some of the practical steps that may be taken by teachers, if the conclusion is reached that education has some responsibility for the development of personality.

Percival M. Symonds - 1959
The main purpose of this article is to emphasize the extent of individual differences and to discuss the school's and the teacher's responsibility with respect to them.

Percival M. Symonds - 1959
IT MIGHT SEEM AS THOUGH THERE WERE little need for a new statement with regard to transfer and formal discipline, inasmuch as there are already many excellent reviews of the psychological findings relating to these topics. More than a score of texts in educational psychology published within the past few years have reviewed most adequately the experimental literature dealing with transfer and have drawn applications to education.

Percival M. Symonds - 1959
The statements in educational psychology texts authoritative as they are, have not been seen by many who are confused as to what education can accomplish. This discussion may reach many who would welcome a fresh statement of psychological findings bearing on transfer and formal discipline.

Percival M. Symonds - 1958
A discussion of emotion and learning. Mild emotion serves as an important and indeed essential incentive to learning, but when emotion becomes intense, and particularly for the individual who has not wholly adjusted to previous stressful situations, it can become disorganizing and hence interfere with learning.

Percival M. Symonds - 1957
One learns the acts that are performed, the words that are repeated, or the thoughts and feelings that are experienced. Unfortunately, much educational practice is based on entirely different principles and it is important to become aware of the extent to which current practice diverges from the simple principle stated in the title of this article.

Percival M. Symonds - 1957
Whether learning takes place most efficiently when attention is given to the whole task to be learned, or when the task is broken down into its elements, each of which is to be learned separately, is an issue that permeates all education.

Percival M. Symonds - 1956
No aspect of education evokes greater difference of opinion and practice than the use of punishment. On the one hand punishment is lauded as a desirable incentive to learning, and on the other it is decried as an abominable practice. A matter that is controversial certainly could benefit from facts that psychology can supply regarding the use and outcomes of punishment.

Percival M. Symonds - 1955
A discussion of the role that rewards play in learning.

Percival M. Symonds - 1955
In this discussion, the place of motivation in learning will be dealt with. Where possible, the experimental basis of the discovery will be reviewed and illustrations of its applications to educational practice will be provided.

Percival M. Symonds - 1952
This article points to an inevitable subjectivity in marks given by teachers and by pupils in self-evaluation, and discusses some of the problems that are involved in helping pupils and their parents to make constructive use of evaluations.

Percival M. Symonds - 1949
A description of the issue of classroom discipline and physical punishment.

Percival M. Symonds - 1949
It is difficult, if not impossible, to describe the kind of persons who make good parents. It would be convenient if what makes a good parent could be reduced to a set of ten commandments. Perhaps the most valid general thing that can be said is that good parents are well-adjusted people.

Percival M. Symonds - 1948
After studying the needs of the 40 boys and girls and planning educational programs for them, the conclusion was reached that an understanding of the fantasy life has a secondary but nevertheless important role in determining the essential features of a program for personality development.

Percival M. Symonds & Richard A. D. Stewart - 1948
Methods of planning in education have had almost no discussion, and students still are left more or less to their own resources in selecting methods of planning the improvement of educational practices. This analysis serves as a springboard for the discussion of procedures in educational planning and the improvement of procedures.

Percival M. Symonds - 1946
The methods of evaluating the personality of candidates for teaching positions are still to be discovered, and superintendents of schools are still relying on snap judgments based on inadequate records and informal personal interviews.

Percival M. Symonds - 1944
This article is devoted chiefly to the corrective aspect of child guidance.

Percival M. Symonds - 1943
The suggestions contained in this article for the better adjustment of teachers are a precipitate of discussions which the writer has had with nine classes in mental hygiene attended largely by teachers.

Percival M. Symonds - 1942
A tribute to Professor Rudolph Pintner, 1884-1942

Percival M. Symonds - 1941
Supervision may belong with the practices which are grouped under the heading of counseling rather than with those which are grouped as educational. This distinction may not be immediately apparent, but a closer examination will reveal that the purposes and procedures of the counselor are quite different from those of the educator.

Percival M. Symonds - 1941
Schools must be concerned with the kind of individuals for whose development they are in part responsible. That is mental hygiene.

Percival M. Symonds - 1938
Rapport is defined in this article as a personal relationship of mutual trust and respect based on a feeling of confidence and security in the other person. When rapport is established the inhibitions due to fear, anxiety, or guilt are relaxed, and response is free and less restrained. Response may also apparently be free when a person wishes to please, to win esteem, to impress, or to vindicate himself with the interviewer, but these attitudes on the part of the subject should not be confused with rapport.

Percival M. Symonds - 1937
It is the purpose of this paper to trace the several lines of development in the guidance field in order to show how they are today rapidly converging in a focus on the child in school and how the convergence of these several streams of development is resulting in confusion and in some instances misunderstanding and professional friction.

Percival M. Symonds - 1936
A description of a study that presents data bearing on the problems and interests of adults.

Percival M. Symonds - 1936
The field of psychological counseling possesses vast possibilities for rendering distinctive service in showing how the motives of man may be changed in order to realize a reconstruction of society, and how the individual may be taught and may learn to adjust himself more adequately to society.

Percival M. Symonds - 1933
The present series of studies was undertaken in an attempt to make more explicit the qualities of a good dissertation.

Percival M. Symonds & Eugene M. Hinton - 1932
GRAMMATICAL usage is like the running of an automobile engine—so long as it runs smoothly we do not notice when it begins to misfire we become painfully conscious of it.1 Correct usage is one of those necessary elements of the mechanics of writing and speaking which serve as a framework for the expression of thought and emotion.

Percival M. Symonds - 1931
In the long run a boy should choose the curriculum which will bring him the maximum of satisfaction, adjustment, or happiness. The factors controlling one's satisfactions are many and diverse. The problem has no simple or easy solution.

Percival M. Symonds - 1931
This article presents the arguments for and against homogeneous grouping which are presented in summarized form here.

Helen Fern Daringer & Percival M. Symonds - 1930
The present article records the result of a detailed analysis of errors in sentence structure in compositions selected from composition scales so arranged as to show the improvement in sentence structure as one passes to writing of better quality.

Percival M. Symonds - 1930
In 1925 the writer undertook, as one of the projects of modern foreign language study, the construction of a prognosis test of ability to succeed in the study of a modern foreign language. Preliminary testing was carried on during the year 1925—26.

Baldwin Lee & Percival M. Symonds - 1929
IN STUDYING the growth of vocabulary usage in written composition it was our purpose to determine the changes that occur in the use of words as writing becomes more and more mature.

Percival M. Symonds & Baldwin Lee - 1929
This article is the second of a series by Professor Symonds and Dr. Lee. Other articles in the series will appear in early issues of The Record. The present study of learning the correct use of capital letters is the second in the series on the learning of English expression. The procedure used in the study of punctuation learning described in the February, 1929, issue of THE RECORD was reemployed here.

Percival M. Symonds & Balwin Lee - 1929
The series of studies which this paper commences is an attempt to describe exactly how pupils learn to express themselves in writing. This first paper presents these facts for punctuation.

Percival M. Symonds - 1927
IN 1924 I was confronted with the problem of taking over and developing a course in research in secondary education. There was very little written at that time that one could refer to for help in determining the organization of such a course.

Percival M. Symonds - 1925
N using the subway to get from the Pennsylvania Station to the Grand Central Station in New York City one has to change cars and take the "shuttle," which connects the subway lines on two sides of the city.

E. L. Thorndike & Percival M. Symonds - 1923
As a result of the investigations producing a list of 10,000 English words with a measure of the importance of each,1 data are available for making vocabulary tests much superior to those which we have had in the past.
