The Children We Teach: Seven to Eleven Years.
Issacs, Susan
With the aim of viewing children as individuals and not as psychological problems or creatures to be taught, The Children We Teach examines the roles of child and teacher as they relate to one another and as they relate to the subject matter and learning tasks of early school years. Included are discussions of relationships among children, of differences between children, of measurement of those differences, and of the value of using scores indicating abilities which the children have. Attention to subject matter is treated in chapters on individual work, on arithmetic, and on reading. Social development, growth patterns, rewards and punishments, development of interests, and intellectual development are also considered. A final chapter draws some practical conclusions. The book was first published in 1932 and is based on the author's many years of experience in British infant schools. A bibliography is included. (MS)
