"The Forty-First Yearbook follows the plan of presentation of many previous yearbooks of the Society in the respect that it consists of two parts printed as separate volumes. It is unique in the sense that the two parts were from the beginning planned as companion volumes designed as scholarly expositions of the concepts of different schools of thought with respect to two fundamental issues in educational theory and practice. These issues pertain to the ultimate purposes of education in a democratic society and the nature of the learning process. The projected aims of a social enterprise, even though they may be defined in terms of scientific knowledge, are the expression of a choice of alternatives. The final determination of such aims is the motive of philosophy. The effective methods to be employed in realizing selected objectives may most assuredly be disclosed through laboratory and other experimental techniques. Thus, in education, the issues involved in the determination of what knowledge is to be acquired are resolved by reference to the philosophical concepts with which the purposes and results of schooling are to be reconciled, while the methods by which this knowledge may be attained are to be sought in those refinements of experience achieved by the science of psychology in the testing of different theories of human learning"--Preface.

"The purpose of this yearbook is to focus the relevant data and concepts from the psychology of learning upon the problems of instruction in the elementary and secondary schools. The achievement of this purpose involves four steps: first, stating how learning proceeds as a general psychological process and how children are motivated to learn; second, describing how respective aspects or categories of behavior, such as motor skills or attitudes, are learned; third, pointing out the implications for instruction of accumulated knowledge from the field of learning; and fourth, redefining instruction in terms of the school as a laboratory for learning. This yearbook will, it is hoped, symbolize the shift in thinking concerning educational method during the last thirty-five years which is reflected in a change of emphasis from "techniques of presenting content" to "directing the learning of the child." Section I of this yearbook presents two chapters which outline the general nature of learning and the motivational basis of learning. These two chapters provide a frame of reference within which fall the more specific types of learning described in Section II. Section II exemplifies a somewhat different approach to learning problems than is usually presented. The general title of the section, "How Children Learn in the School Environment," states the central problem. Children in the elementary- and high-school grades learn a variety of behavioral patterns. This section organizes these products of learning in terms which, while not necessarily mutually exclusive, are descriptive of a variety of generalized products. These are (a) motor types of activity, (b) information, concepts, and principles, (c) interests, motives, and attitudes, (d) social, emotional, and personal adjustment, (e) aesthetic types of behavior, and (f) principles and techniques of problem-solving. The authors of this section have, through principles and illustrations, shown how children acquire the types of behavior subsumed under the six categories just listed. An explicit statement which is descriptive of the type of behavior under discussion is an important feature of each of these chapters. Particular problems which school personnel face in providing for each of these desired types of behavior are also discussed. The implications of these discussions for improved instruction are treated in Section III of the yearbook. Section IV includes a summary of the preceding chapters and a redefinition of method in the school. It presents and defends the point of view that the classroom must cease to be a lesson-hearing room and must become a learning laboratory"--Introd.
