The Origins of Professional Schoolmen, 1820-1900.
Mattingly, Paul H.
This research into American social history examines educational institutions and educators of the 19th century. The central organization of the study is the American Institute of Instruction, founded in 1830 and surviving until 1908. This organization provided a medium for discussion and examination of significant educational experiments in the 19th centry. The author explores the educational institutions which sent members to the Institute, discusses the many teachers and professors associated with it, and examines its roles and functions. Other topics discussed include the emergence of the teacher as professional, teacher education, national and local school associations, and the school superintendent role. These increasingly specialized areas of education made the Institute largely ineffective in the early 20th century. (Author/RM)
