Manual Arts in the Junior High School. Bulletin, 1924, No. 11
Roberts, William E.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
There is available a large amount of valuable material upon the subject of manual arts in the junior high school. This material is, however, very largely general in character: or, if specific, deals with individual or isolated special features of the work. In treating of specific problems of the administration of manual arts in the schools, there are wide differences of opinion; so that, while the general aims and purposes of the work are understood and accepted, there is much doubt and confusion in the minds of administrators as to the expression of these aims in terms of more specific objectives, methods, subject matter, courses of study, and organization. The purpose of this report is to give somewhat definite answers to the questions: "What are the aims of manual arts in the junior high school, and how are they to be attained in terms of teaching, methods, subject matter, and organization?" Contents include: (1) Foreword; (2) Introduction; (3) Junior high schools in typical cities; (4) The junior high school; (5) Manual arts in the junior high school; (6) Courses of study in manual arts; (7) The manual arts teacher; (8) Manual arts room; and (9) Manual arts equipment. A bibliography is included. (Contains 13 figures and 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
