MY COUNTRY SCHOOL DIARY

This brings the human touch to pedagogy and should be of great interest to young women contemplating teaching as a career. It is a heartening picture of four years in a one teacher school, not without its disappointments, but proving the value of social goals and programs. Here is the rural school, with a new teacher, new ideas- the years from 1936-39. The children developed self control, the ability to take home what they learned. Here is the process of validating and rejecting, of challenging work, of watching response to group living -- and at the end of each year realisation that the final results were paying dividends. Top notch vocational material in a field which generally offers isolated, information.
