criticism, 1483. Kerschensteiner, Georg M. A. Die nationale einheitsschule. - Säemann;

monatsschrift für jugendbildung und jugendkunde, July 1914, p. 266–72.

Report of an address delivered at the Klel (1914) meeting of German teachers. A contribution to the prevalent discussion of proposals and counterproposals to meet the growing demand for a differentiation of schools and courses of study and their adjustment to the pupil's individual abilities and

Förster's (professor emeritus, University of Vienna) criticism (in Süddeutsche monatshefte, May 1914, p. 249–63) of Gustav Adolf Wyneken's book “ Schule und Jugendkultur," Jena 1914. The author declares Förster's depreclatory criticism of Wyneken's book to be unfair and subjective, while he charges Förster with counseling the abandonment of the principle of Inner freedom and autonomy, which is of central importance in Wyneken's work, for the principle of authority.

16:333-37, September 1914.

Writer says the great mistake in English schools is that or attempting to teach“

the elements of this or that special branch of science; what we should seek to do is to impart the elements of scientific method and inculcate wisdom, so choosing the material studied as to develop an intelligent appreciation of what is going on in the world. It must be made clear, in every possible way, that science is not a mere body of doctrine, but a method ; that its one aim is

the pursuit of truth." 1511. Churchman, Philip H. On the teaching of French pronunciation. School

review, 22: 545-54, October 1914.

ciple of contrast by perspective.” 1512. Clark, Clifford P. The translation habit. Classical journal, 10: 17-28,

Banishment of the translation by making 'sight translation' the final and supreme test for promotion," etc.
