Manual training; in tlie eonnnon
lehooUhas undoubtedly come to -la.v.
L.ere rl.Tays was and abvia.s will be
a place for manual triiuin in every
But you say how is this possible?
And we ask, what is your ide of
M mual training? If you have u clear
idea of what manual ti'iiiiiiiiy is, or
-hould be in your school, you will have
jittle difficulty in devising ways and
means to 'teach it.
Not even n plane, a tri square or a
saw is needed in many schools, to do
manual work. Even thouyh you have
nine of these things, you may still
make a beginning;.
You arc simply lo use the physical
activities of your children, in sjettins,'
experience necessary to the ucquisi
t'nn or knowledge. What are their
games' Bo the boys play ball? Teach
them to "Wike their own ball and
cover it. Have tnem make their own
oats. Arc they studying spelling (
Have, them make their own diction
aries and hero they can have their
lirst work in book-binding. Are they
studying Geography? Have them
model a stream( a mountain, a valley.
By means of manual work History
ean be made fascinating rather than
dull and in many cases almost mean
uiyless. Take for example, the land
ing of the Pilgrims, which wo have
J! just been teaching in connection
wilh tho Thanksgiving story. One
teitcher hail the children make lirst.
In eonncctinik with the sojourn'of the
Puritans in Holland, a windmill. A
ittle model was made of the May
flower. When she told of the babies
on board the Mayflower, they made a
cradle, and dressed two little dolls,
one Oeeanus, the other, Peregrine.
When landing, thoy made an anchor
and chain. Tri fix the idea of the
rude log houses, they constructor)
little houses. From Japanese niAnihi
paper- thry made the principal arti
cles of furniture for lhe houses.
Tliev braided 'strips of cloth' and
sewrd thrm into rugs.
The dny bi fore Thanksgiving the
.tory of the Pilgrims was aetul oul,
he b. j ri p-.esentiiig the fathers by
;eai jug bats, eollai;s aud cuff-:, the
.iris - fing the u other:., in krreliii fs,
ufN, boi'iiets, ijtid aprons.
Are lhe pupils drawing? Have
them cut out what they draw, aud
,'iave thrm cut without rlrav ing.
In the Arithmetic give the manual
part as well as the theory, and have
each buy, yea, and each gli 1 measure,
ai d, measure, and uieiisii-o.
'Iherels nubuGj et taught but thai
manual training w'.ll enKve.i and help
opt u u'p the mind .to a fuller know
ledge of the truth.
It is the natural order, through'
the physical lo the meutal, moral; and
zven spiritual rature.
Whn tuny will not appreeritt truth
the bettor bi cause he is required to
measure, and lit. parla ii.tu u uiiuk-?
What boy will not tal;e n keener
interest in Ins nrithrnetie. if lie has
from tht start, to use it m making
What, boy will not nppreeiato tidi
ness the mare, from having to keep
his desk in order!
Thp manual pert of life is o natural,
that it seems little short of cruel to
rob a child of its natural heiitnge.
There is no subject so easy m wlilli
to interest a ehjld. A healthy child
both wants to linn out things for it
self, aud muke things for itself. In
many instances the teacher need only
watch and direct, or suggest.
Tho great task ot tho lonelier is
to prqvido constant and consistent
change in the things that occupy tho
child mind. Without this, tho child
eoon wearies, and the teacher be
comes discouraged, and ready to give
Truthfulness, and care in work is
one of tho mo.st precious elements' oi
good character. Tho errors, slights,
and misconceptions of pupils cannot
escape dotection In manual training
as easily its In other branches, while
good, honest careful work will always
show for its real .value.
Individuality,. the immense impor
tance of which as an element of
rharneter we are apt to undcr-estl
mate, can be called nut and cultivated
by no method that does not partake
largely, of ilnveiition and autoproduc
tlon. No course is so well adapted
to meet these ends as manual train
ing. The influence of manual training
can always bo found in the games
and purMiits of those who have en
jiycd its benefits. Give such a child
a' knife, and a pieeo of wood, a pile of
sand or a luint) of clay and you will
fill its hours with plensure. Are
l.here any pursuits more to a child's
ItUiug timu whittling, playing in the
sand, or making pictures? With' a
definite purpose to make something,
villi suitable examples to follow, he
is busy and happy. Cheerfulness of
disposition becomes second nature.
Manual training further increases
the power to appreciate works of art
and architecture. These arc follo.vcd
only to the elementary stage but the
impetus given to the mind along
these lines is of the greatest value.
We cannot all becomn millionaires
but we can all become appreciative.
The happiness wo lose because it
lies beyond us is nothing compared to
the happiness that, lies at our doors
unused and unappreciated, because
of our lack of sympathy. We have
eyes, hut we have not been trained
to use them.
Manual training does not s top with
the child but should be provided for
in the later education of the boy
How often boys grow restless, tired
'of their books, and leave school be
fore they should. Lack of proper
outlet for pent up energy robs many
a bright boy of his best chances by
driving him from school just when it
should bo easiest for him to acquire
knowledge. The shop, with a few
tonls often saves such a boy. Give
him knife work if you have no tools
for something better. Have him
make a bow and arrow, a pad for
sharpening pencils, a spool for wind
ing twine, and a thousand other use
If you haye the tools, simple pieces
of furnituro can bo made, -a book
shelf, a corner shelf, a taboret', a
table, a chair, etc. The only way
and the best way to prevent a boy
from whittl'ug his desk is to give
htm something to whittle!
Part of tho manual work will, of
course, grow out of the needs of the
school room. Make oases for spect
mens, shelves for books. and models of
the many things that come up in the
history and the story work. If you
can only occupy the boy's hand and
mind at the same time, you have him
in his most rece'plive state. He will
drink in what you tell him with' the1'
least effort aud in tho .least time
Suggest simple inventions. Make
your manual work include mujh draw
ing. Draw cane cars, (if your school
is near a s igar plantation) and make
models of them. The work may be
ever so crude! but if you have start
ed a train of thought in the boy's
m'nd you do not know what the re
suit in'iy be.
Manual training should ba hailed
as the Declaration' of Independence
of the rights of children to acquire
knowledge in Nature's own way, and
at the same time, be free und' happy.
