Extra Work, or Busy Work.
The scliool-room should not M*pt4*sei*t
an abfolute monarchy, it should ra'lie*
be a constitutional monaitfiy. More
advanced educationalistß hold that i*
ahoiild border on the republican form of
government.
Students need a guiding band, anil
while a certain amount of lihertv eln uld
be given, they must be made t<> feel that
there is a superior governing p wer. to
which they muat submit. This done
and goon they become convinced that it
ia to their best interests to assist Ibe
teacher in the development of the facnl
ties. A conscientious pupil, (and nearly
all pupils can be trained to become
largely conscientious.) begins to feel,
after a little, the awakening of powers
within him. anti as the life springs begin
to flow he rouses to the fact that educa
tion is not tso much the amount of
mathematics, language or science one
imbibes as the development of tho-c
powers to be gained bv the pursuit of
those studies. It is then he concedes
the right of direction to the teacher; it
is then thev unite efforts for the de
velopment of the highest powers of the
pupil, and the true teacher is in his cle
ment.
The work of a school is. or should he.
divided in a teacher’s mind tl>u*: reci
tation, study, recreation. The re-cita'inn
is not of |>aramntint importance. By it
the teacher tests the pupil’.- kn iwle 'g*
of facts he should have a* q<pre.|, Mia Tm
dlity ami accuracy of expression, his re
tentive power, bis attentive rapidity of
thought, etc, etc.
Recreation is not play, hut incltide
auch work as music, gymnastics, calis
thenics, story-telling, etc., ete.
stem!
The study period is prnbab'v the
greatest cross to the teacher, w hhe i' i
the gteatrs - benefit to the pupil Ii i
just as neeecotry to my mind—a** !
more neces-ary, tlt ■ t child should
study well, that he should recite well
Then i ist'i n h • himself m kc* the ef
fort, all external support being with
drawn, then that he at tubs toward per
faction, then his miml and soul a*ei t
themselves. To work well he must hold
all impulse to idle or plav at In* , a
either by direct effort of wll, nr i*r->tl
desire to please, co* quer ihe ta-k Tie
first great need of the chilil is the con
trol Of his Will power; he espeoudh
neetls this seif-contr I. (7fiit.fr
usually enter scho’tl with will strung r
to control oilier* than tn control them
selves.
The main use of the stu lv li no is to
lead the children Into hah'ts of atten
tion and precision and self-control, in
the use of eyes. toilytle, hands and
and the end is the iiiixruiiini aueitpd of
work in the minimum spm;** **f tunc.
It matters not the cnnwled cm ilffrn
of a school room, the must tike
great care, e-pecially in primary grades,
that the external emidi ions for stinh
are good. The air should be fresh, th*
studv class s remote as possible frunT'
the recitation class; teacher anti pupils
should mo-lu ate their voices so as not
to dia'raci.
Study tla*B should sit tn restful posi
tion. so that little change lie needed,
and above all they should be limited a*
to time.
Take for example a class of fifteen In
arithmetic ; require a given number of
examples in a limited time. The length
of time should be that required bv the
majority of the class. There will a*
ways he a few who will complete their
work before the expiration of fine.
These are emphatically the greatest
responsibility of the teacher, and their
cases involves the greatest amount of
study. If they work rapidly but care
lesslv it should be done over; if it he
satisfactory, then tlie pupil must b*'
given employment for the remainder of
the study time. It would bo mental
suicide to neglect it.
Th-swork is known to normal teach
ers as “Busy Work ” If this spare tim>-
be not pleasantly nnd profitably em
ployed, you make for yourself unueties
sary trouble and place a premium on
confusion.
Now watch the effect of ties busy
Work. Those who flu sh fir-t have a
conscious glow of strength, feeli* g'• at
their industry lisa been revard*-*!. Tie
others desire the plea-ur* Cite few have
deserved and double the energy plae* and
upon their vrork. When the. time
comes when all the class produce nea*
and accurate woik. you simply increa-e
the amount of work ami the pro.-et-s be
gins again.
For such work to be *u. ces fu', c -
dren must understai and dead* what y u*
standard of excellence is. All falling oil
should bo shown amt proven to the pup 1
and be punished by loss of busy work,
and niad • to do over ponily done w*> k
Buch punisliment is better than k*** \ -
ing in after school, or at recess. Etch
effort to reach the standard, sln-ipd re
eeive honest and fair commendation.
Keep up the child’s courage. I’rai**- the
eff *rt, will, desire, but do not pra's*- un
worthy results. Lei your standard b
accuracy, neatness, rapidity.
A verv pitiful, wee patter mav de-erve
a much heartier, "Y ni fiave tried, trv
again.” than a moderately good - me.
Each learner niu-t decide for lom-eli
what “busy woik” shall consist of
Certainty it must havereducti*<nal value,
drawing, board denotations, map •haw
ing, anagrams, lustoiiial ami gcoiraph
ical, puxz es, etc, etc. Any of these it
the children like them The drawing
and coloring of race, government, pro
duct inn,and teligiou- tuaps.al-o campanil
and settlement map*, is cxi-elleut work
These may be franc and or mounted for the
room walls, as a reward for work well
done.
Anagrams may as well be made as
bought, from the simple t r a to Simon
“Peter in Tear**” ami the selecting of
letters and the marking of words is a
healthful and agreeabie exercise. His
torical, grammatical, scientific, and bio
graphical puzzles are to lie found In
magazines and newspapers, and should
be stlected with reference to the knowl
edge of the class.
Reading matter judiciously selected
is a great gain to pupils in the grammar
grades, it should always he such as to
give pupils a laste for good reading.
Care should be taken that the rmpils
do not take advantage of having some
liberty in their work. But over-haste
and carelessness seem to me to bo more
easily dealt with than imhflerenee and
waste of time. The object of such a
course of woik is to keep a ! l the time of
the pupils occupied, and occupied hap
pily ami to some purpose.
We too often put a premium on idle
ness, instead of industry.

'it i but a symptom, and warns the sufferer
that there is something the matter with bis

bail hi*s4. aud nervousness ar* frequent],
the source of the many ous aching
sensat ons that afflict the b*4y. You can
remove the cause of such distress by using
B. B B. i Botanic Blood Balm;.
' C. FI Kobetus Ailßnta, Ga . writes : “My

Wm. N Nelson, McDonough, Ga.,
writes : “B. 8.8. has benetitted my daug

W. K. Eliis, Brunswick, Ga., writes: “I
