Review of The Place of Industries in Elementary Education
The Place of Industries in Elementary Education. By KATHARINE ELIZABETH DOPP. Chicago : University of Chicago Press. Third edition, 1905. Pp. 270.
Dr. Dopp had the fortunate conception of presenting for teachers a most important element in education —the manual element—in the light of modern psychological, race-psychological, and pedagogical results, and the third edition remains, perhaps, the most suggestive single work which can be placed in the hands of teachers. It is, indeed, of more importance just now that teachers should be in possession of this volume than that improved textbooks should be in the hands of the pupils. The third edition is improved by the addition of numerous illustrations, and an important chapter on the ways of procuring a material equipment, and the ways of using it so as to enhance the value of colonial history.
