Teaching American Ideals through Literature. Bulletin, 1918, No. 32
Neumann, Henry
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The best expression of a people's ideals is to be found in their literature, and there is no better or more effective means of disseminating these ideals among the masses of the people than through the right use of the best of the literature in the schools and elsewhere. The great struggle in which the United States is now engaged for the maintenance of American ideals of freedom and democracy among its citizens and for the possibility of their extension throughout the world makes this a most opportune time for setting forth these ideals in an orderly way and for calling to the attention of teachers and others who have the direction of the reading of large numbers of people the books in which they are most adequately expressed and suggesting methods of using them.
