Introduction: The Purpose and Scope of the Yearbook
by T. R. McConnell - 1942
The purposes of this Yearbook are (1) to provide a concise and authoritative statement of three of the most active and influential theories of human learning; (2) to show that although there are differences among them, these systems possess many fundamental points of agreement which are often obscured by different terminologies, and that these common principles constitute a sound and positive basis upon which constructive educational thinking and practice can proceed; (3) to indicate that the theoretical positions are to a considerable degree complementary, each making a useful contribution to a comprehensive description of the learning process; and (4) to present in a manner primarily constructive and only incidentally controversial, a discussion of some of the more important phases and conditions of human learning which are particularly significant for education.
