The Curriculum of the Horace Mann Elementary School--Arithmetic, Geography, History, Music: Study of New York City


by Henry Carr Pearson - 1913

The purpose of this study of New York is to acquaint the children with their own city, to interest them in the efforts of its best citizens toward a higher ideal of city life and government, and to inspire them with a desire to do something for their city. This knowledge should include (1) the actual physical features of the city; (2) the inhabitants, their number and nationality; (3) the occupations of the people and some of the problems arising on account of the industrial pursuits in which many of them are engaged; (4) some of the institutions aiming to solve the most pressing of these problems, via. the Consumer's League, the Child Labor organizations, the City Club; (5) the history of New York and historic spots in the city; (6) the beautiful things in New York, buildings, parks, museums, art collections, etc.; (7) the means for protecting life and property, viz., the Police and Fire departments, courts.
