The Course of Study in History in the University Elementary School at the State University of Iowa


by Ernest Horn & Mabel Snedaker - 1923

The course of study in history in the University Elementary School is frankly experimental. It represents an attempt to adapt the work of the first six grades to that of the junior and senior divisions of the University High School. This course is modeled on the course recommended by the Committee on Social Sciences in Secondary Schools. It provides for two cycles of European and American history, each chronologically arranged. For that reason it does not seem necessary to provide another cycle in the first six grades. Moreover, since the recommendations of this Committee place the European background in the seventh grade, the whole plan earlier recommended by the Committee of Eight is upset. This is quite a serious matter because of the fact that practically all of the books available for the first six grades are written to fit the recommendations in the Report of the Committee of Eight.
