Can We Better Beginning Teaching by Shifting Attention From the Child to the Beginning Teacher?

Florence G Duane, Fordham University

Abstract

There is no doubt that teaching practices have improved greatly during the past century. This has been due largely to concentrating attention on the child. He has become the center of study. Much in the field of psychology is devoted to his ends. His every movement is watched, his every change is noted, his every bit of growth is measured. Not being satisfied with the study of the periods of his childhood and his adolescence, we are extending this study to the period of his pre-school age in the one direction and to his college years in the other. We want to find reasons for those maladjustments that mean less full development in his physical, mental and moral growth.
