How to teach by George D Strayer( )

33 editions published between 1917 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The art of teaching is based primarily upon the science of psychology. In this book the authors have sought to make clear the principles of psychology which are involved in teaching, and to show definitely their application in the work of the classroom. The book has been written in language as free from technical terms as is possible. In a discussion of the methods of teaching it is necessary to consider the ends or aims involved, as well as the process. The authors have, on this account, included a chapter on the work of the teacher, in which is discussed the aims of education. The success or failure of the work of a teacher is determined by the changes which are brought to pass in the children who are being taught. This book, therefore, includes a chapter on the measurement of the achievements of children. Throughout the book the discussion of the art of teaching is always modified by an acceptance upon the part of the writers of the social purpose of education. The treatment of each topic will be found to be based upon investigations and researches in the fields of psychology and education which involve the measurement of the achievements of children and of adults under varying conditions. Wherever possible, the relation between the principle of teaching laid down and the scientific inquiry upon which it is based is indicated. Any careful study of the mental life and development of children reveals at the same time the unity and the diversity of the process involved. For the sake of definiteness and clearness, the authors have differentiated between types of mental activity and the corresponding types of classroom exercises. They have, at the same time, sought to make clear the interdependence of the various aspects of teaching method and the unity involved in mental development"--Preface.

Educational administration : quantitative studies by George D Strayer( Book )

11 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Professors Strayer and Thorndike present materials of essential value that relate to educational administration from various articles and monographs, in such a compact form that every educational administrator can have a copy for his desk. It permits also an effective use of these materials for class discussion, since the book can be in the hands of the students as a reference text. The volume does not attempt to show the relations of the various topics discussed to the field of education in general, or to show general administrative perspective. It is expected that the educational administrator is already familiar with these matters, and that where the book is used as a text, comment and perspective will be supplied by lectures and readings from other books already in the field
