Summary
"The teacher who comes to this book with the hope that he will find out exactly what to do in each of the varying circumstances of his day's work in school will be disappointed. But that teacher who comes to it with the hope that he may find in clear and readable language an interpretation of the contributions of psychology to the life and spirit of the classroom will not be disappointed. The man who studies to change practice thinks in terms of methods and is doing something that is valuable; but the man who studies to know what lies back of and gives meaning to practice thinks in terms of philosophy and is doing something that is still more valuable. Every survey of any field resolves itself in the final analysis into a consideration of fundamentals. This book is distinctly of this later kind. Although on every page and in nearly every paragraph one receives practical information of immediate value, still all these shifts and changes in methods and practices set forth are illustrative of modes of thought of more fundamental importance. Thoroughly modern and forward-looking in its point of view, the book lays a heavy hand upon a great mass of scientific studies and takes from them those facts and deductions that should constitute the common knowledge of every classroom teacher. It is the kind of book which should hearten the teacher who shrinks from the technical language of the typical psychological study; it is the kind of book which should be welcomed by those who sincerely desire to know what relation psychology has to the classroom"--Foreword.
