Teaching About Light and Sight.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This manual is intended as a reference. Teachers who use it should select the materials best suited to their work. The first part of the manual is devoted to the sense of sight, for that is of fundamental importance in understanding why certain practices are recommended. The next section presents the principles of light control and of lighting for eye comfort and contains applications of the principles of correct lighting in home and school. The third section makes suggestions to teachers about advantageously introducing material on sight conservation and lighting. It also suggests some activities and experiments that may be useful in presenting these materials to the pupils. The fourth section lists sources of further information: books, pamphlets, periodicals, and agencies supplying information and materials. (Author/CP)
