PREFACE TO TEACHING

This might serve as a sort of ""Freshman Bible"" for aspiring teachers, required reading for every normal school in the country. The assistant professor of education at Teachers' College discusses the significance of the job, the place of the teacher in the community, the necessary approach to the problem of ""reforming the world"", the importance of live scholarship, flexibility of interest, non-academic interests outside the schoolroom, contacts with parents and pupils, problems of preparing for the classroom and meeting the hurdles of the classroom itself.
