Journal of the Midwest History of Education Society, v1 1973
The first journal publication of the Midwest History of Education Society contains papers presented at its 1972 annual meeting and three papers on Canadian education. "University Extension in the United States, 1885-1915" (G. M. Woytanowitz) defines the U.S. origins of the university extension as an adult education agency. "She Could Always Teach" (K. H. Kamin) examines the historical impact of this attitude on women, the evolution of the teaching profession, and the social implications for women who did teach. "The Revolutions of 1968: A Neo-Hegelian View" (R. E. Mason) considers whether the Neo-Hegelian perspective developed by Herbert Marcuse can be attributed to the student unrest of 1964-1971 in the United States, France, and Germany. "A Critique of Lawrence Cremin's American Education: The Colonial Experience 1607-1783 and Its Adaptability In History of American Education Courses" (S. S. Cohen) reviews the book's organization and themes and discusses its use as a textbook. "Amos Bronson Alcott: Transcendental Educator" (D. B. Ripley) reviews the teaching innovations and educational philosophy introduced by Alcott in Connecticut Schools. These innovations included the physical design of the classroom, the choice of textbooks and library books, and the introduction of physical education. "Education and Industrial Skills: Changing Conceptions of the Role of Public Schooling, 1865--1900" (B. E. McClellan) discusses the introduction of manual training in the U.S. educational system. The first paper on Canadian education, "John Strachan: A Controversial Figure" (C. H. Gross), is a biographical study of the first Anglican Bishop of Toronto who promoted religious instruction in schools, especially at the university level. "American Influence on Progressive Education in Canada" (R. S. Patterson) discusses how progressive educational reform measures were introduced to Canadian educators. "Education and Multilingualism in Manitoba" (K. Wilson) discusses the effects of the Laurier-Greenway Compromise's bilingual clause and the establishment of the 1967 Public Schools Act. The program and business meeting's minutes are included. (DJC)
