Teaching-learning theory and teacher education, 1890 to 1950 by Walter Scott Monroe( Book )

"The education of the successive generations of children is basic to the perpetuation and improvement of a social group. In a primitive society the means of this education was relatively simple, much of the responsibility being assumed by the family. As the group became larger and living became more complex, a special educational agency became necessary. Schools were established in the American colonies because the need for their services was recognized. As our civilization developed, the responsibility of the schools increased and the preparation of teachers for our schools became recognized as a matter of social importance. The establishment of state normal schools, beginning in the second quarter of the nineteenth century, was an expression of the thesis that a teacher in an elementary school needed an education somewhat different from that provided by the higher schools of the time. The extension of our common schools to include grades nine to twelve resulted in the application of a corresponding thesis to teachers for secondary schools. Recognition of the thesis that teachers need some special preparation for their work created the complementary problems of what should be the nature of this special preparation and how should it be provided. The story of the evolving solution of these problems is a complex one. It transcends an account of the development of practice in the education of teachers. Educational practice is a means for the realization of certain goals. In teacher education these goals are the qualifications considered necessary or desirable for teachers in our schools. The concept of these qualifications is derived from our understanding of the teacher's function, and so the story includes the evolving concept of the teaching-learning process which has been a major factor in the thinking about desired teacher qualifications. The following chapters are grouped under three general heads: I. Development of teaching-learning theory; II. Evolution of teacher-education purposes; III. Development of practice in teacher education. These captions indicate the central problems considered. In describing the developments in these areas, attention will be given to the "mode of development" as well as the changes that occurred. Thus there will be mention of differences of opinion, controversies, and divergent practices. As a means of contributing to an understanding of the thinking and doing, certain background conditions will be noted"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)

"This volume is the outgrowth of an attempt by the author to give, to advanced college and graduate students, a course which would equip them so that they would be able to make critical studies of educational tests and to form intelligent judgments with reference to their usefulness. Although the volume is the direct outgrowth of the author's attempts to instruct college students, he hopes that it will afford a means of giving to superintendents and others who direct the use of educational tests in our public schools a point of view, as well as acquainting them with certain fundamental principles which seem necessary in order to secure the maximum returns from the investments that are being made in this field. The number of available educational tests has multiplied until it is necessary for one who is formulating a testing program to make a selection of the tests to be used. This selection should be made intelligently. After the tests are selected they should be used to increase the efficiency of the school. It is the author's hope that this volume will prove helpful in assisting those working with educational tests to accomplish these ends"--Preface.

Development of arithmetic as a school subject by Walter Scott Monroe( Book )

9 editions published in 1917 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The arithmetic with which the American schoolboy of the twentieth century wrestles differs in many respects from the "cyphering" which was truly a stumbling block to many a child in colonial days. Not only have there been significant changes in the subject matter of arithmetic, but also in the aim of instruction, in the place of arithmetic in the plan of education, and in the methods of teaching the subject. In fact many of the distinguishing characteristics of arithmetic as a twentieth century school subject are products of the nineteenth century. The purpose of this investigation is to trace in some detail the development of arithmetic as a school subject and the methods of teaching it in the United States, and to show the influence of Warren Colburn in stimulating and directing this development. Appended are: (1) Table of contents of Dilworth's "Schoolmaster's Assistant"; (2) Table of contents of "a New and Complete System of Arithmetic" by Nicolas Pike; (3) Table of contents of Warren Colburn's "First Lessons"; and (4) Table of contents of Warren Colburn's "Sequel". A bibliography and an index are included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
