Excerpt from Manual of the Elementary Course of Study for the Common Schools of WisconsinThe numerous tasks facing the rural school teacher from day to day, make it difficult if not impossible for her to become a master of all the details of her daily work. Attention is called here to some of the larger things which she may do with reasonable success, and which if mastered, will go a long way toward eliminating the smaller difficulties.1. Distinguish between the memoriter and the rational studies.Rural school teachers waste much time by their failure to distinguish between drill studies and rational studies. Drill studies are branches that aim to secure as a result certain definite mechanical execution. Such branches need little discussion. Practice is the road to success. The cardinal drill studies are spelling, writing, and the parts of arithmetic which have to do with skill in computation. Constant repetition under right conditions is the sure means by which good spellers, good writers and rapid calculators are developed. Teachers should make up their minds to this and drill for results.On the other hand much time is wasted and the mental powers deadened because repetition is demanded in branches where reason should rule. This fault is illustrated in the teaching of History, Reading and Geography, especially in the Upper Form. Memoriter repetition of the text in history is of little value. The student should be held to a rational statement of the substance of the lesson and should be obliged to prove his understanding of it so far as possible.The teacher should classify the branches to be taught into the memoriter and the rational.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
