Jewell, James Ralph

This monograph was originally prepared as a thesis for the degree of doctor of philosophy at Clark University, and in its original form was accepted by the faculty of that institution in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the degree. It presents an unusually comprehensive survey of the provisions for agricultural education and for instruction in closely related lines in various parts of the world, but with especial reference to our own country. This bulletin contains the following chapters: (1) Nature study; (2) School gardens; (3) Elementary agricultural education; (4) Secondary agricultural education; (5) Agricultural colleges; and (6) Practical advantages of agricultural education. An index and a bibliography are included. Appended are: (1) Form for nature observations employed in the schools of Nova Scotia; and (2) The Irish system of agricultural education. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
