Alumni Activities: The Practical Arts in General Education


by David Snedden - 1918

The following proposed shop for boys from twelve to fourteen years of age with a tentative program of activities is here described in order to give a measure of concrete exemplification to the pedagogical findings set forth in the present paper. Let us assume a city junior high school of 1,200 pupils, chiefly from twelve to fourteen years of age, which offers to boys three elective courses in practical arts: namely, the 'agricultural', the 'commercial', and the 'industrial'. In each of these courses, the amount of time to be given by pupils enrolled will vary from two to ten hours per week, administrative economy requiring that a pupil shall enroll for some definite number of weekly periods. Assume further that experience shows that an average of 300 boys will enroll in the department of industrial arts and that the average weekly attendance will be five hours per pupil.
