Books for Young Teachers.


1. Common School Law for Common School Teachers. A digest of the provisions of statute and common law as to the relations of the Teacher to the Pupil, the Parent, and the District. With 500 references to legal decisions in 28 different States. 14th edition, wholly re-written, with references to the Code of 1888. By C. W. BARDEEN. 16mo, cloth, pp. 120. Price 75 cts.

The reason why the teacher should make this his first purchase is that without a knowledge of his duties and his rights under the law he may fail either in securing a school, in managing it, or in drawing the pay for his services. The statute provisions are remarkably simple and uniform. The decisions of the Courts, except upon two points, here fully discussed, follow certain defined precedents. An hour to each of the eleven chapters of this little book will make the teacher master of any legal difficulties that may arise, while ignorance of it puts him at the mercy of a rebellious pupil, an exacting parent, or a dishonest trustee.

2. Hand-Book for Young Teachers. By H. B. BUCKHAM, late principal of the State Normal School at Buffalo, Cloth, 16mo, pp. 152.' Price 75 cts.

It anticipates all the difficulties likely to be encountered, and gives the beginner the counsel of an older friend.

3. The School Room Guide, embodying the instruction given by the author at Teachers' Institutes in New York and other States, and especially in. tended to assist Public School Teachers in the Practical Work of the SchoolRoom. By E. V. DEGRAFF. Thirteenth edition, with many additions and corrections. 16mo, cloth, pp. 398. Price $1.50.

As distinguished from others of the modern standards, this is a book of Methods instead of theories. It tells the teacher just what to do and how to do it; and it has proved more practically helpful in the school-room than any other book eyer issued.

4. A Quiz-Book on the Theory and Practice of Teaching. By A. P. SOUTHWICK, author of the “Dime Question Books." 12mo, pp. 220. Price $1.00.

This is one of the six books recommended by the State Department for study in preparation for State Certificates. The others are Hoose's Methods ($1.00), Hughes's Mistakes (50 cts.), Fitch's Lectures ($1.00), Page's Theory and Practice ($1.25), and Swett's Methods ($1.25). We will send the six post-paid for $5.00.

5. Mistakes in Teaching. By JAMES L. HUGHES. American edition, with contents and index. Cloth, 16mo, pp. 135. Price 50 cts.

More than 15,000 have been used in the county institutes of Iowa, and elsewhere superintendents often choose this book for their less thoughtful teachers, assured that its pungent style and chatty treatment will arrest attention and produce good results.

6 How to Secure and Retain Attention. By JAMES L. HUGHES. 16mo, cloth, pp. 97. Price 50 cts.

This touches attractively and helpfully upon the first serious difficulty the teacher encounters. No young teacher should neglect these hints.

7. Primary Helps. A Kindergarten Manual for Public School Teachers. By W. N. HAILMANN. 8vo, boards, pp. 58, with 15 full-page plates. Price 75 cts.

In these days, no primary teacher can afford to be ignorant of “The New Education,” and this is perhaps the only yolume that makes kindergarten principles practically available in public schools.

8. Dime Question Book, No. 4, Theory and Practice of Teaching. 16mo, . paper, pp. 40. Price 10 cts. By A. P. SOUTHWICK.

A capital preparation for examination.

The immense sale of the Regents' Questions in Arithmetic, Geography, Grammar, and Spelling has led to frequent inquiry for the questions in the Advanced Examinations. As it is not permitted to reprint these, we have had prepared this series, wy which the teacher need purchase books only on the subjects upon which specia. help is needed. Frequently a $1.50 book is bought for the sake of a few questions in a single study. Here, the studies may be taken up one at: time, a speciç, advantage in New York, since applicants for State Certificates may noro presen! themselves for examination in only part of the subjects, and receive partial Certificates to be exchanged for full Cer. tificates when all the branches have been passei!. The same plan is very generally pursued by county superintendents and commissioners who are encouraging their teachers to prepare themselves for higher certificates.
