The Kindergarten Curriculum. Bulletin, 1919, No. 16
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The curriculum presented in this bulletin is a response to a definite need frequently expressed by kindergarten teachers, primary teachers, and school men. The work of the different grades has been fairly standardized as to subject matter and method, and is usually outlined quite definitely for the guidance of teachers in the course of study. But because kindergarten is a relatively new movement and its work has not yet become standardized, the course of study seldom includes a similar outline to guide the kindergarten teachers in their work. The work here suggested is experimental in the sense that it is a departure from the method of the past, but it is guided by a clear vision of the problem to be solved by means of it. This bulletin is divided into the following chapters: (1) General statement; (2) Subject matter: Community life and nature study; (3) Manual activities; (4) Art; (5) Language; (6) Literature; (7) Plays and games; and (8) Music. (Contains 3 footnotes.) [This bulletin was prepared by the Subcommittee on Curriculum of the Bureau of Education Committee of the International Kindergarten Unit. Best copy available has been provided.]
