Kindergarten Education: Kindergarten Supervision and Critic Teaching

by Mary D. Runyan & Caroline G. O'Grady - 1904

In this course are discussed the governing ideas that control the kindergarten, its organization, and its relation to the school; the likeness and difference of the work from school-work; the special regulations necessary for private, public and charity kindergartens; necessary and superfluous equipment and expense; the preparation required by the kindergartner, and how far this is in line with that of the grade teacher; the equipment and preparation of the grade teacher and supervisor; plans of work; mothers' or parents' meetings, whether referring only to the kindergarten, or related to the school; the curriculum of the training-school; the amount of academic and professional work, and the subjects included; the amount of practice; the question as to whether this should include primary work, and whether the primary teacher should study kindergarten; entrance requirements; new tendencies in the educational and social ideals of the time and the influence these have on the work. Research papers, original outlines, or practical experiments on these lines, are required of the students. The references for the course include outlines and reports of work of the various cities and organizations maintaining kindergartens; the most modern books on school hygiene and school economy as well as general educational theory; all the writings of Froebel, with various commentaries on these, and all recent magazine articles bearing on the subjects, including various criticisms of the kindergarten.
