The Curriculum of the Horace Mann Elementary School--Arithmetic, Geography, History, Music: History


by Henry Carr Pearson - 1913

The present course of study in history presents many modifications of the course published six years ago. We have been and still are trying out new ideas both as to subject matter and method, so that the outline offered here is not final, but represents what at the present time seems best adapted to the particular needs of our pupils. The work of the earlier grades cannot with exactness be called history. In the First Grade, for instance, it is rather a study of sociology, putting the children into intelligent connection with their surroundings. From a study of the home they are led out through the work of the father into a larger environment to observe those who are occupied in providing them with the necessities of life. To emphasize the universality of the family idea, sharply contrasting homes from other parts of the world are brought in, the homes of the Dutch and the Eskimo.
