The author thinks a teacher should be liberally educated rather than trained, that he

should be first of all a scholar, and that even his strictly professional training should
be of the liberal type. The book is a series of eight articles, which seem to have
been given originally as Lectures and not very carefully edited for publication as a
book, and in which che author's notions appear as to what constitutes the proper
education for teachers. The chapter on a theory of education values is especially

See also No. 82. 91 Greenwood, J. M. Principles of education practically applied. Ed. 2. 199 p. D. Appleton, $1. (Internat. educ. ser. v. 50.)

The first edition of 1887 has been changed in many details, enlarged by seven pages,

breaking in the schoolroom. 144 p. S. Flanagan, .50 93 White, E. E. The art of teaching. 321 p. D. Amer. book co., $1.

“This veteran author is here at his best, and we can give the volume hearty commen

dation. Altho we deem many of his methods antiquated and mechanical, there is everywhere such seriousness of purpose, such familiarity with the inner work of classrooms, and such a sincere desire to utilize what is new while giving up nothing

of the old that the work is sure to stimulate and instruct every reader.” Ped. sem. Also reviewed at length, and not altogether favorably, in Educ rev. for Mar., 1902.

" The purpose of this paper is to put in brief and concise form such information

curriculum as may be of interest and help to superintendents facing this problem." For further material consult the Manual training magazine pub, monthly by the Uni

versity of Chicago ; the N. E. A. Proc. Dep't. of Superintendence, p. 250-75 and p. 646-82, for papers read in the Manual training Dep't.

323-34.) 102 Hope, E. W., and Browne, E. A. Manual of school hygiene. 207 p. D. Macmillan, $1.

Some practical precepts relating to the hygiene of schools are concisely stated. The

chapters on Exercise and health in the second part are especially sound. The book will not compare in usefulness for American teachers with Mr. Shaw's volume men

tioned below. " The only especially notable portion of the book is the extensive, thoro, and satis.

factory chapter on the eye." Educ. rev., (Lond.) 103 Howe, E. M. School ventilation. (In Association of collegiate alumnæ. Publications. Feb. p. 64-71.)

great importance of having it good. 104 Johnson, G. E. Condition of the teeth of children in public schools.

Condensed, accurate statement of the conditions which surround most school children,

with suggested measures for the protection and promotion of their physical and mental health. The facts here collected and clearly stated have before been widely scattered. Some of the chapters, notably those on Handwriting and Sight, are largely new, scientific and of much value. Kotelmann and Newholme, which have been the only manuals of any consequence in this subject, are entirely supplanted for American schools by this book, since the monograph by Mr. Morrison on Education in the U. S. concerned itself entirely with the school building.

piled by Mr. L. N. Wilson of Clark university. A general Bibliography of child-study was compiled by L. I. Rhoades, Pedagogical

their place in English secondary education. 531 p. 0. Eyre & Spottiswoode, 2/3.

This valuable book is volume 6 of the Special reports on educational subjects edited

by Mr. M. E. Sadler. The schools described, of which there are about four hun-
dred in England, are what would be called private boarding schools in the United
States. They prepare only for the great English Public schools and the Royal

Navy, and do not keep boys beyond the age of fourteen.
The volume comprises forty papers, mostly by head-masters. About half are con-

cerned with details of the curriculum and methods in special branches, while the
other and most interesting half treat of the broader significance and work of the
schools. The papers are honest recognitions of both failure and success, and nearly
all excellently done.
