Excerpt from A District Conference Held at Gary on History Teaching in the Secondary Schools, Vol. 13As a part of its public service activities, during the first half of the school year, 1914-15, the Extension Division, in cooperation with the Department of History, extended to the teachers in the public schools of the State a consultation service on teaching problems in history. This work, which was in charge of Assistant Professor Oscar H. Williams, was designed to meet the needs of history teachers who desire direction in the study of methods and in the analysis of the results of their teaching.As an outgrowth of the work, and as a means of reaching a considerable number of high school teachers and of facilitating the study of the problems of their field by the teachers themselves, the Conference on History Teaching in Secondary Schools was organized. It was held in the Emerson School at Gary on February 26 and 27, 1915. Its purpose was twofold; first, to consider some of the more vital and concrete problems in the everyday teaching of history in high schools, and secondly, to define standards for measuring the worth of courses of study and methods of teaching history in the schools.The Gary public schools proved an interesting and appropriate setting for the conference. Contrary to the usual practice in these widely advertised schools, they were open to the visiting teachers on the days of the conference. A considerable number of principals and teachers of history of northern Indiana high schools was present all or most of the two days of the conference.As an important adjunct to the conference, an exhibit of visualizing apparatus for teaching history was displayed in the library of the Emerson school. The exhibit was collected by Mr. M. J. Thue, of the East Chicago high school, and was under his personal charge during the meeting. It was visited by many of the teachers and principals who were in attendance at the conference.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
