Psychologic foundations of education : an attempt to show the genesis of the higher faculties of the mind by William Torrey Harris( Book )

33 editions published between 1898 and 2011 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In offering this book to the educational public, I feel it necessary to explain its point of view. Psychology is too frequently only an inventory of certain so-called "faculties of the mind," such as the five senses, imagination, conception, reasoning, etc. And teachers have been offered such an inventory under the name of "educational psychology." It has been assumed that education has to do with "cultivating the faculties." Perhaps the analogy of the body has been taken as valid for the soul, and, inasmuch as we can train this or that muscle, it is inferred that we can cultivate this or that faculty. The defect of this mode of view is that it leaves out of sight the genesis of the higher faculties from the lower ones. Muscles are not consecutive, the one growing out of another and taking its place, but they are co-ordinate and side by side in space, whereas in mind the higher faculties take the place of the lower faculties and in some sort absorb them. Conception, instead of existing side by side with perception, like the wheels of a clock, contains the latter in a more complete form of activity. Sense-perception, according to the definition, should apprehend individual things, and conception should take note of classes or species. But conception really transforms perception into a seeing of each object as a member of a class, so that the line between perception and conception has vanished, and we can not find in consciousness a mere perception of an individual object, but only that kind of perception which sees the object in its process of production. This book is an attempt to show the psychological foundations of the more important educational factors in civilization and its schools. Special stress is laid on the evolution of the higher activities or faculties, and on the method of it"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

"Philosophy as presented by Dr. Harris gives to the student an interpretation and explanation of the phases of existence which render even the ordinary affairs of life in accordance with reason; and for the higher or spiritual phases of life, his interpretations have the power of a great illumination; and many of the students are apparently awakened to an interest in philosophy, not only as a subject to be taken as a prescribed study, but also as a subject of fruitful interest for future years and as a key which unlocks many of the mysteries of other subjects pursued in a college course"--Preface.

The third reader by William Torrey Harris( Book )

40 editions published between 1877 and 1919 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Reader is the result of the practical experience of many years. The Phonic Method: though it has been found that the phonic method gives the pupil a better mastery of 'hard' words than any other, yet at this stage of his progress he has still many obstacles to overcome. To meet these with advantage, his knowledge of the power of letters must be extended and perfected. Reading Matter: Acquiring additional power over new words as he becomes more familiar with the diacritical marks, the pupil will advance with rapidity and confidence. Reading Lessons: Except for purposes of special drill, the pieces should be read as wholes, in order that a keep interest in the reading lessons may be excited and sustained. Interest on th the part of the pupil will supersede the necessity of much labor on the part of the teacher. The Words in Columns: at the head of the reading lessons are intended to be studied for spelling, pronunciation, and meaning, before the lesson is read. The diacritical marks can not be thoroughly learned except by practice in marking words. The best means of making sure that a child comprehends the true meaning of a word is to require him to use it in a sentence of his own. "How to Read": The lessons so headed present the most important principles of good reading, in so simple a way that they can be readily understood by even a child. Being made reading exercises, they will not be neglected, as lessons upon elocution usually are when inserted as separate articles, or by way of an 'introduction.'
