Twelve Suggestions for Teachers
1. Every recitation should be
gin with enough of review to con
nect the lesson with what has pre
2. Be independent of the text
book as far as possible, during the
recitation. Pupils are supposed to
use text books before the recitation
3. Nothing wastes time more, or
more surely leads to inattention
than the habit of repeating the
question to a class.
4. Young pupils should be giv
en no home work to do.
5. Never speak to your pupils
in a petulent, ill natured manner,
and be cautious about resorting to
ridicule as a means of discipline.
6. Kindness and affection,
when set in an iron frame, are the
strongest elements of a teacher's
7. Never command when a sug
gestion will do as well.
8. It is wrong to discuss a case
of discipline before your school.
9. There issomething wrong in
the discipline that would be sub
verted by a hearty laugh.
10. Avoid all loud, harsh tones
of voice, cultivate gentleness of
speech and pleasantness of expres
sion. 11. No communication from pa
rents should be treated with dis
respect. 12. It never pays to show your
temper in dealing with a parent.
Teaching and Talking
The young teacher should learn
early that teaching and talking are
quite different. Almost any reci
tation in which the teacher talks
half the time, is a failure. It
seems that the teacher thinks the
pouring out of knowledge is the
main thing. I heard a recitation
in fractions once in which the
teacher went to the board, took
the crayon from each child that
failed, and did the work herself,
with a continuous string of ques
tions which the child was sup
posed to answer in monosyllables,
but half of which he did not ans
wer at all. This teacher had talk
ed the class into such condition
that it did not care whether
its work was good or bad. The
school should train for accuracy.
The work of the pupils should be
done right the first time. The
habit of being wrong half the time
in arithmetic and spelling is bad.
The teacher should know the dif
ference between teaching and talking.
Into the Scrap Heap
There used to be a few who held
teachers' positions who were un
able to accept any opinion other
than their own, and who regarded
any knowledge save that which
they possessed as hardly worth
considering. It is supposed that
all these self-satisfied, omniscient
ones are dead; in fact, they were
always dead. There is no death
more absolute than the mental
death of the self-satisfied. Not
only does his mind fail to absorb
and assimilate new knowledge, but
"from him that hath not, shall
be taken even that which he
hath." His scrars of scientific
information are repudiated by
later investigation; his memory of
unchanging statements becomes
hazy; his application of his know
ledge becomes poorer with each
year, and he is finally relegated to
the scrap heap of the mentally incompetent.

Think out the Lesson
There are very few teachers who
can think in the presence of their
pupils and through the thinking
determine the best course to pur
sue. There is, perhaps, no pro-'
fession in which the results of
daily preparation are so evident as
in the profession of teaching. The
teacher who makes it a habit to
think out carefully all the work of
the day, will be well equipped to
meet the unexpected if it happens.
That the unexpected will happen,
even in school, eyery experienced
