Seite 99 - The teacher must not consider herself required to go over all the topics in any given quarter. She must not attempt to do any more than she can do in a proper manner. If it happens that only the first two or three topics are all that can be dealt with profitably, the teacher must not allow herself to undertake any more. 2. In case the teacher finds that the topics of any given quarter are not arranged in such an order that she can take them up to the best advantage, she is at liberty to change that...
Seite 118 - ... between promotions to a fourth of a school year, that is, about fifty days. St. Louis seems to have taken the lead in experimenting with this plan".
