The Instructor Prof. J. P, King,
addressed Uio Institute as tatha purpose
of the weeks work. The main
purposes he said worn: to broaden
the outlook of the teachers, to raise
their standard, to learn new and better
methods and how to adopt them.
He said ho would try to sec that the
work done during t!c week would be
of a practical, helpful nature.
C. E. Morris, of Princeton, the
representative of the American Book
Concern, was introduced by the Instructor
and said; that as a teacher
ho endorsed the Instructors plan of
leaving out 'fine spun theories' and
spending the time in practical
work. One of these practical things
he said was reading and the child's
ability to read. A child alwaysjm
itates his teacher in reading as well
as in other things, therefore it is of
the greatest importance that a teach,
cr should read well. Failure in ma.
ny studies is caused from poor reading.
A child should never be rushed
in this study but taught slowly and
carefully with much attention to his
pronounciation and articulation."
Adjournment until 1-30.
The afternoon session was opened
by singing "America," after which
the roll was called and the regular
prognftn taken up.
Prof. Rascoc discussed the work
of the teachers in assigning work for
the pupil, should make each lesson
a link in the chain of the terras
work in that study. H advised
short, definite assignments to make
clear the work expected of the pupil.
The Instructor said ho wished to
emphasire tho importance of teaching
pupils how to study eorrectly and
therefore kadiag them tt think
Miss Margarite Moore in summing
up the value of a pupil's knowledge
of how to study, said that ev.
erythmg depended an this and that
a teachers shonld teach that beforu
anything olse. Messrs T. F. New.
comb and J. B. McNcoly, in telling
hew a pupil could be taught to study
placed tbe greatest value on the in
terest aroused in tW pupil.
C, . Morris said all teachers

and that mental arithmetic waas
good subject to develop the habit of
correct study and to create self de
ers attitude should always bn animated,
interested in everything and
in looks and motions show it.
Miss Iva Hickin said the intention
of the whole class must be secured
and that this could, in part,
be dono by very careful assignment
preparation on part of both teacher
and pupil and a bearing of interest
by tt ruber
A member of the Institute asked
what should be done with a pupil
whose attention could not be secured.
Mrs. Walker answered tho question
by saying that if at a certain time a
teacher could not create interest
cnuugh to hold the attention of pupils
she should demand it, then af
terward try to hold it. Mr. Morris
addod that the mental attitude of the
teacher created or destroyed the interest
of the class.
After a few moments recess the
Institute had the pleasure of listening
to a vocal solo by Miss Anna
In the absence of Miss Corda
Wheeler her subject of what should
determine the nature of the questions
asked during the recitation, was discussed
by Miss Gray, Mr. Guill,
Miss Golightly, Mr. Rascoe and tho
ino instructor in talking oi attention
warned the teacher against
expecting a child to give voluntary
attention during long continued
periods. A teacher should make use
of the involuntary attention to create
the power of voluntary attention.
Adjourned until Tuesday Morning.
Tbe devotional exercises were conducted
by Rev. Adams and after
singing the regular program was laid
a.ide in order to have Mr. Adeock of
Livingston eounty read a few of hie
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. She thinks it should be
taught, not as a mere calling of
words but' as a subject of live inter.
est ana mucn importance. The aim
should 'be to create power on part of
pupilsNto read clearly and with expression
and to understand and make

others understand tho meaning of the
Miss Ethel Hard siid that the
bssis for work in reading should be
Miss Mabel Minner said a t"i.. jt'i child, his nature, oxperioncc nod
environment. She said that a teacher
should always sec that the child
is able, or is prepared lor any selection
before he tries to read it.
Miss Riley supplemented the foregoing
talks by saying that the teach,
er should aim to get the child so interested
that he would read for himself
other things than his school
A teacher should bo interested in
the best gems of literature and love
them in order to get the child to love
them according to Mr. Harvc Habb.
The Instructor summarized the
subject under discussion. He said
that if the selection read rollouts the
nature and experience of the child
he will read uudcrstaudi gly aud in
oral work be able to make others understand.
The secondary aims in
reading work, he said, is to create a
love for good literature, to appre
ciate beauty and to build charactor.
He reminded the teachers of rural
schools that they have a fine field for
the close study of the nature poets.
Miss Mary Wilborn said that
rather than have pupils get an incorrect
idea or impression of any selection
she would read it first to
them before giving them tho lesson.
In tho preparation of the lesson,
Mr. C. E. Thomas said, that his plan
of study would be to first have the
child tell the selection as a story, to
study the condition under which tbe
selection was written, to study unfamiliar
words and to try to understand
things read, then to reproduce
as memory work the whole or parts
of the selection.
Miss Elva Roberts said that while
one pupil reads she would mark demerits
for pupils who aro inattentive.
The author's life, she thinss, should
always be studied and in oral work
tho teacher should pay attention to
the ohilds' position.
Guill aid Prof. Rascoe said that
much of the success in reading goes
back to the assignment and preparation,
and that if teachers fail in all
else and succeed in reading their
work will not have been in vain.
After a short rceess the regular
program was contined
