Modern Ways in One- and Two-Teacher Schools. Bulletin, 1951, No. 18
Bathurst, Effie G.; Franseth, Jane

This bulletin describes practices in one- and two-teacher schools that are helping rural boys and girls get a good education. It contains suggestions for improving the programs of schools that do not meet the needs of boys and girls in the country today. In the school year 1947-48, there were approximately 75,000 one-teacher schools and 18,000 two-teacher schools. More than 2 1/2 million children look to these schools for the beginning of their organized education. Teachers on their first jobs and those serving during shortages of regular teachers should find this bulletin helpful in learning the ways of modern one- and two-teacher schools. The discussion emphasizes teaching procedures, selection of experiences, planning, evaluation, and cooperative activities. No attempt is made to show techniques of teaching arithmetic, reading, and other specific subjects since many books do this job well. Although the bulletin is addressed to teachers, it is hoped that it will also be grateful to administrators and supervisors who are looking for ways of helping teachers in one and two-teacher schools improve their teaching. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
