State Superintendent of Public
Instruction to Address
PUBLIC MAY HEAR HIS TALK
Two Hundred Fifty Registered With
More Coming Interesting
Lectures Are Given,
Tomorrow afternoon will be the big
day at the county teachers institute
which is in session at the high school
Superintendent S. J. Ferguson has pre
pared a treat for the teachers in tli 3
shape of a talk from Francis O. Blair,
state superintendent of schools. Su
perintendent Blair will discuss prom
inent educational topics. The general
public will be welcome to attend this
lecture. It will be given at the high
school assembly room at 3:15.
Professor McKenny addressed the
teachers at the county institute this
morning on "Curiosity, Interest and
Attention," and told how all operate
together to aid iu the education of
the child. He said that it is the in
terest which is aroused in a chiid
which guides it in what it does or at
tempts to do. Professor McKenny ex
plained that there are two kinds of
interest, the one which is evinced iu
things which meet a natural desire
and the one which is shown iu things
of commercial value. The first is the
better kind to work with in educating
but the second will do if the other
cannot be aroused. There are times
when the first sort- of interest is
aroused in the wrong direction but
the speaker thought that with the
right kind 'of work it could be changed
to the right path.
"For instance," he said, "if a chill
is interested in reading books let him
read them if he wants the blood and
thunder kind of book. When he is
once thoroughly interested iu reading
Kive him books Just as interesting btf
of a higher class of literature and his
inlerest iu reading will not fag, while
the good done by the change is
great." It is curiosity which prompts
interest and interest leads to atten
tion. It follows then that a child
gives the best attention when mos
interested. The teacher who causes
children to be interested in things fo
which they have no natural curiosity
is the most successful type of in
structor." 'I:ii'liiii(i ItrndiiiK KaJ".
Miss Hamilton lectured this morn
ing on reading in the primary depart
ment. She told how easy it is to get
a child to read when there is a mo
tive in it which leads the child., Im
pressing upon them the fact that
books are but the records of the plays
and the stories which are of so much
interest to children supplies a motive
in most cases and they arc at once
eager to read the books. The work
of teaching a pupil to read starts with
the formation of words and sounds,
which can be taught to them by games
and stories. After the child lyis mas
tered a small vocabulary, it should be
encouraged to make it larger by the
addition of words and phrases.
Primary Work Important.
Yesterday afternoon Miss Hamilton,
in her lecture, told the teachers how
to appeal to the child in such a way
that teaching would not be a hardship.
The first thing to do is to appeal to
the interest of the child and to make
it feel that school is not a prison, but
rather a place where there is consid
erable enjoyment. The desire to read
should be developed early in the child,
and Miss Hamilton said that the best
way is to relate children's stories and
to read to them. Children's stories ap
peal to nearly all children, and before
long they want to bear more. The de
sire to hear them soon leads to the
desire to be able to read them, and
then teaching becomes easy,
Professor McKenny took primary
work as his subject, also, yesterday
afternoon. His talk was on the devel
opment of the child along educational
! lines. He spoke of this development
of the child as lK.iug the principal
function of the teacher. Professor Mc-
Kinny also thought that the first step
in leaching is to cultivate the desire
lo leant, and his method for instilling
Ibis desire into the pupil was much the
same as the one laid down by Miss
Many Have ItrgiNtrred.
A large number of teachers have reg
istered during the first two days of
the institute and more are coming in
all the time. It will be probably the
best attended institute ever held here
if the number keeps swelling by new-
arrivals each day as is expected. Fol
