Stenographic Reports of Speyer School Lessons


by Ernest Horn - 1915

This issue of the RECORD introduces the first of a series of stenographic reports of lessons taught in Speyer School,—the experimental school for Teachers College. The purpose in publishing these lessons is to aid the teacher in the public schools to carry out in her own classes the kind of work which is demanded by modern educational theory. Through the stimulus of scientific method, and a more vital philosophy of education, there has been a rapid progress in the last twenty-five years toward the formulation of a satisfactory theory of the education of the child. But while the contributions in theory have been great, there has not been a proportionate development of means for carrying out the theory in actual school work. Up to the present time, progress in the practical field has been made for the most part by teachers who have received inspiration and suggestions from the theorist, and who have worked out for themselves what seemed to them to be the practical implications. Very frequently, in these cases, if not always, a full understanding of the implications has not been possible and grievous errors have resulted. Even in cases when the theory is understood, the teacher in the public schools may not have the training or the time or the facilities for working it out in practice. And so it has come about, age after age and the work of the theorist has failed to modify greatly the actual work of the school.
