After a song the meeting was ready
for another day of earnest work. Prof.
Booth continued his talks on arHiinie
tic. He said In part tnat some of tne
teachers teach too many ways of
working the siinie problem instead of
seeing how plain tfiy can make the
one best and safest way. Don't try
to make the work as mysterious as
possible but find a good way and
stick to ltimtlllhepupils are we'll
ounded in it, then they can work
the hard or easy problems and be
sure of their results. I expect to
teach them he simplest ways that
reuulre the fewest explanations and
devote the time to working problems
not too hard trobletns, but ones
well selected for the grade. Be sure
to leave out explanations that tn iy
tend to mystify the cliild.
Prof. Van Cleve, speaking on cur
rent literature asked how many of
you when you read the big daily pa
pers, read the poetry? Do you know
that there Is more good ioetry and
prose being written today than ever
before (fn.l that there fa a greater de
mand for Rood literature than ever
before? Do you try to read a few of
the best things by the greatest auth
ors of today, Riley, Kipling, Van
Dyke Duiibar and others?" Interest
your, students in selecting and read
ing some of. the best short stories
and poems, teachers, especially in
the rural suhools. tniut furniuh. n.
material for some of these readings
for very few libraries In rural or vil
lage schools are up-to-date enougu to
furnish what you want for-this pur
pose. The fine up-to-date Cairo li
brary gives the Cairo teachers an ex
cellent opportunity for this work.
While Prof. Van Cleve was giving
his talk on literature, MIsa Mead was
instructing the primary section with
Interesting suggestions for work In
the iiniary grades.
Speaking on history Prof.. iBooth
said: If you want to grow in strength
as a history teacher do some extra
leading outside of the . regular test.
Get. some good book that covers liie
subject in a more intensive way and
get a thorough understanding of your
subject. Every teacher should be
bigger than his test and still knnw
how to teach the interesting essen
tail things and pass by the nof" es
Prof.' Van Cleve spoke on grammar.
He said instead' of so nrnc technic
al work In the seventh and eighth
grades it is suggested 1 ;iat short com
positions anil letter writing bo re
quired. Teach the 'children to write
what they want to say in a clear,
concise, sentences. Teach them to
speak good Englisti and express the
few thoughts they have on any sub
ject in the purest-English and1 in a
short, direct style".
Prof. Booth 9,oke on , Pedagogy,
advising, teachei i to "try .to handle
their schools po tactfully that they
will, never need to resort to physical
force.. Be persistant in holding to
your point if you are sure you aro
right, ifake no rules that h1a3r-01.ua;
you trouble and leave you so chance
to be. tactful. Never be resentful;
never harbor a desire to "evetr up;''
have lor each one spirit of hope-
