The Instructor I'rof. J. I'. Klug,
addrc5?cd tho JimUtuteiia
of the weeks work. The maiu
purposes he said worn: to broaden
the outlook of the tcachors, to raiic
their standard, to learn new anl better
methods and how to adopt them.
He said ho would try to see that tho
work done during it c week would be
of a practical, helpful nature.
C. K. Morris, of 1'rinretun, the
representative of the American liuok
Concern, was introduced by the Instructor
and said, ' that as a teacher
he endorsed tho Instructors plan of
leaving out 'fine spun thiories' and
spending the time in jructic.il
work. One of those practical things
he satd was reading and the child's
ability to read. A child always im
Hates his teacher in reading as well
as in other things, therefore it is of
tho greatest importance that a teach,
or should read well. Failure in ma.
uy studies is caused from poor reading.
A child should never be rushed
in tins study but taught slowly and
carefully with much attention to his
pronounciatiou anil articulation."
Adjournment until 1-30.
The afternoon session was opened
by smgiug "America," alter which

attention during long continued
periods. A teacher should make uis
of the involuntary attention to create
the power of voluntary attention.
Adjourned until Tuesday Moruing.
The devotional exorcuos were conducted
by Hcv. Adame and after
singing the regular program was laid
Livingston county read a few of his
poems from "Wooings of Rusticity."
Miss Mary Finly opoaed the discussion
of reading by telling what
she thought the aim iu this work
should be. Sho thinks it should bo
taught, not as a mere calling of
words but as a subject of live interest
and much importance. The aim
should be to create power on part of
pupilsxto read clearly and with expression
and to understand and make
others understand the meaning of the
,Miss Kthel Hard stud that the
basis for work in reading should be
Miss Mabel Mimicr said a " nature, experience nod
ers attitude should always bn animated,
interested in everything aud
in looks and motions show it.
Miss Iva Hickiu said the intention
of the whole class must be so-cured
and that this could, iu part,
bo dono by very careful assignment
preparation on part of both teacher
and pupil and a bearing of interest
by ti roller
A member of the Institute asked
what should be done with a pupil
whoso attention could not he secured.
Mrs. Walker answered the question
by saying that if at a certain time a
teacher could not create interest
enough to hold tho attention of pupils
she should demand it, then af
tcrward try to hold it. Mr. Morris
added that the mental attitude of tho
teacher created or destroyed the interest
of the clans.
After u few moments recess the
Institute had the pleasure of listening
to a vocal solo by Miss Anna
In tho absenca of Mus Corda
Whcolcr her subject of what should
determine the nature of the questions
asked during tho recitation, was dis
cussed by Mist Gray, Mr. Gui
th roll was called and the regular j .MiH3 Golightly, Mr. llascoe and the
progriAn takon up.
I'rof. lUscoo discussed the work
of tho teachers in assigning work for
the pupil, should make each lesson
a link in the chain of the terms
work iu that study. H advued
short, definite assignments lo make
clear the work expected of the pupil.
The Instructor said he wished to
emphasiie tho importance of teaching
pupils hw to vudy correctly and
thoreforc leidug them t think cor.
Miss Margarite Moore in summing
up the value of a pnpil's know!-edge
of how to study, saia that ev.
crythmg depended itn thif and that
a teachers should teach that before
anything olsc. Messrs T. F. New.
comb aud J. It. McNccly, iu telling
how a pupil could be taught to study
placed the greatest value on the interest
nr.uised in t pupil.
0. E. Morris said all teachers
.bovld study some with the pupils
environment, alio said that a teach
cr should always sec that the child
is able, or is prepared lor any selection
before ho tries to read it.
Miss Riley supplemented the foregoing
talks by saying that tho teach,
cr should aim to get the child so interested
that he would read for himself
other things than his school
A teacher .should be interested in
the best gems of literature and love
them in order to get the child to love
them according to Mr. Harve Habb.
The Instructor summarized the
subject under discussion. He said
that if the selection read reflects the
nature aud experience of the child
he will read uudcrstandi gly aud in
oral work be able to make others un
derstand. Tho secondary aims in
reading work, he said, is to create a
love for good literature, to apprc
ciate beauty aud to build charactor.
He reminded the teachers of rur.il
schools that they have a fine field for
tho close study of the nature poets.
Miss Mary Wilhorn said that
rather than have pupils get an in
correct idea or impression of any selection
sho would read it first to
them before giving them tho lesson.
In tho preparation of the lesson,
Mr. C. K. Thomas said, that his plan
of study would be to first have the
'child tell the selection as a story, to
.,:... i:m . I . "
finneMnia philil in imva rn im .rv ,
study the condition under which the
; selection was written, to study un
familiar words and to try to understand
things read, then to reproduce
as memory work the whole or parts
of the selection.
Miss Klta Roberts said that while
one pupil reads she would mark de-
meT'H fr wh inattentive
.ide in order to have Mr. Adcock of
The author's life, she thinks, should
always be studied and in oral work
the teacher should pay attention to
tho ohilils' position.
Guiil aid Prof. Rascoe laid that
much of the success in reading goes
back to tho assignment and preparation,
aud that if teachers fail in all
else and succeed in reading their
work will not have been in vain.
After a short recess the regular
program was coutined
