Some Phases of Nursery-Kindergarten-Primary Education, 1926 -1928. Bulletin, 1929, No. 29
Davis, Mary Dabney

Three terms which refer to "the child" as the center of education have come into common use during the 1926-1928 biennium. The terms "the whole child," "the child-centered school," and "creative expression," when translated into current practice, indicate significant progress in educational procedures. The actual demonstration in classroom practice of an adequate educational environment has been more widespread and more frequently stimulated and supported by scientific research than it has in the past. Instances of this demonstration in practice, which are suggestive of many others, are discussed in this report. The following topics are discussed: (1) Enriched environment; (2) A new type of educational literature; (3) Children's introduction to reading; (4) Reconstruction of report cards; (5) Nursery school and parent education; (6) Children's progress aided in kindergarten and first grade; and (7) Contributions from research for teaching problems. (12 footnotes and a bibliography are included.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
