College News and Departmenal Notes: Experimental Education

by Departmental notes - 1919

The following are some of the special activities of the classes and individual students in measurement and experimentation in elementary education. For a year the class has been cooperating with the entire staff of the Horace Mann Elementary School in an experiment with methods of teaching silent reading. This experiment has just been finished. Mr. S. A. Courtis is directing a very extensive experiment in the New York City and Boston schools. Mr. John Lacy has practically completed an interesting experiment to determine the educative value of moving pictures. Miss Harriet O'Shea has secured the cooperation of several schools in an experimental study of the Montessori method. A promising phase of this study is an attempt to develop a technique for the group measurement of very young children. Miss Evelyn Carroll has been studying the educational development of her class of geniuses. The experimental study of the Horace Mann primary school, published in the May, 1918, issue of the TEACHERS COLLEGE RECORD is the work of still other students from the above courses.
