Σελίδα 268 - The higher branches, especially all mathematical subjects, require patient application and habits of abstraction, on the part of the older pupils, which can with difficulty, if at all, be attained by many pupils, amid a multiplicity of distracting exercises, movements and sounds.
Σελίδα 126 - ... these exercises are brief, hurried, and of little practical value. They consist, for the most part, of senseless repetitions of the words of a book. Instead of being the time and place where the real business of teaching is done, where the plough-share of interrogation is driven down into the acquirements of each pupil, and his ability to comprehend clearly...
Σελίδα 9 - The attention of parents and school officers was early and earnestly called to the close connection between a good school-house and a good school, and to the great principle that to make an edifice good for school purposes, it should be built for children at school, and their teachers; for children differing in age, sex, size, and studies, and therefore requiring different accommodations; for children engaged sometimes in study and sometimes in...
Σελίδα 269 - Side by side in the same recitations, heart and hand in the same sports, pressing up together to the same high attainments in knowledge and character, will be found the children of the rich and poor, the more and the less favored in outward circumstances, without knowing or caring to know how far their families are separated by the arbitrary distinctions which divide and distract society.
Σελίδα 459 - ... every question of figures which comes up in practice — I call this a good education. And if you add the ability to write pure grammatical English, I regard it as an excellent education. These are the tools. You can do much with them, but you are helpless without them. They are the foundation ; and unless you begin with these, all your flashy attainments, a little geology, and all other ologies and osophies, are ostentatious rubbish.
Σελίδα 17 - ... surface of the body in insensible perspiration They are imperfectly warmed. The rush of cold air through cracks and defects in the doors, windows, floor and plastering is not guarded against. The air which is heated is already impure from having been breathed, and made more so by noxious gases arising from the burning of floating particles of vegetable and animal mattei coining in contact with the hot iron.
Σελίδα 459 - English language well, that is with intelligence, feeling, spirit, and effect ; - to write with dispatch, a neat, handsome. legible hand, (for it is after all. a great object in writing to have others able to read what you write.) and to be master of the four rules of arithmetic, so as to dispose at once with accuracy of every question of figures which comes up in practical life : — I say I call this a good education ; and if you add the ability to write pure grammatical English, with the help...
Σελίδα 127 - ... he does not feel and cannot assume, and the other closeness of attention and abstraction of thought, which he cannot give amid the multiplicity and variety of cares, — from one case of discipline to another, pressing on him at the same time, — he goes through the same circuit day after day, with a dizzy brain and aching heart, and brings his school to a close with a feeling, that with all his diligence and fidelity, he has accomplished but little good.
Σελίδα 127 - ... chaos. There is constant change, but no progress. " This want of system, and this succession of new teachers, goes on from term to term, and year to year — a process which would involve any other interest in speedy and utter ruin, where there was not provision made for fresh material to be experimented upon, and counteracting influences at work to restore, or at least obviate the injury done. What other business of society could escape...
Σελίδα 9 - It should be built for children, and for children differing in age, sex, size, and studies, and therefore requiring different accommodations; for children engaged sometimes in study and sometimes in recitation ; for children whose health and success in study require that they shall be frequently, and every day, in the open air, for exercise and recreation, and at all times supplied with pure air to breathe; for children who are to occupy it in the hot days of summer, and the cold days of winter,...
