Summary
"This book is written with one major purpose: to present the student of kindergarten-primary education with the coordinated point of view of education. As defined previously, this means that the "best educational practice in a given field is placed side by side with the science underlying that practice." The writers believe that this book is a timely contribution to a highly important field of educational endeavor. An earlier statement of faith regarding the problem set for themselves may properly be repeated here: (a) A science of education, and hence, a real profession of teaching, should rest primarily upon the scientific facts of pure psychology. (b) In the past half-decade the discovery of psychological facts of child life has been so extensive, and their application in the best kindergarten-primary schools has been carried so far, that a new contribution based upon applied psychology is warranted. (c) In the coordination of practice with its underlying science are found educational values of immediate worth to the earnest teacher and student of education. It is expected that this book is chiefly to be employed as a text for college and normal school classes in educational and child psychology, especially by those educational institutions seeking in their teacher-training to unify the respective efforts of the kindergartner and the primary teacher. Hence each chapter is followed by questions for discussion. Bibliographies for more extended reading are provided. It is the further hope that experienced teachers, reading circles, and especially parents, will find both purely scientific and practical values in reading the book"--Preface.
