WORK TO THE PDPIL
Departmental Teaching in tfy
Grade School! If Now
OTILS MAKE OWN CHOICE
' Tht . opening of the i new school
year brings further evidence of
tendency to adapt .the curricuiufh to
the pupil rather than to make the
pupil adapt himself to a hard and
fast course of study. The idea
departmental teaching in the grad
schools ,ii also being extended, 'the
experimental stage having been pass
ed and its practrcability established.
The first departmental work in the
grade schools was that introduced, at
Long school ten years ago, when the
late Sarah McShane was principal.
Martha Powell, the succeeding prin
cipal, took the , work up anal today
she is the most enthusiastic propon
ent of departmental education for
tittn, sixth, seventn and eigntn grades
Within the last few years this sys
tem, was introduced it Edwar3 Rose-
water, Columbian, Garfield, Windsor
and Tram schools. Beginning with
the school year now being started, the
following schools have been added to
the list: south Lincoln, Miner rark,
Monmouth . PaYk, Saratoga, Clifton
Hill, Walnut Htil, Lincoln and baup
Dundee Ooei Further.
The Dundee school has gone one
step in advance by adopting what is
known as the differentiated course of
study, which means that the pupils
are required to take specmed essen
tiala and" may make two selection
from the following studies: minui
training, domestic science, -physical
training, music) drawing, German or
rrench. I his system is made neces
sary because the Dundee school is
the only grade school of the Greater
Omaha system having domestic
science and French. To ask any one
Eupil to take the whole course would
e unreasonable and unwise,, the
tcnooi oinciais explain.
Principal 'Powell at Long school
believes the departmental plan has
justified itself for the sixth, seventn
and eighth grades, and she believes it
will apply with more or less success
in the tilth grade, l bis year she is
including only the sixth, seventh and
eighth grades, for the reason that her
sixth A class is so large she was re
quired to divide it into two classes,
thus making in all seven classes now
taking the departmental work, y
Teachers May SpscialUe.
', "There are several good reasons
why 1 would I recommend the de
partmental plan," saftl Miss Powell.
ror one. intng, u enaDics incsc
teachers to specialise in one or two
branches of educational work, gen
erally one branch. How can any
eighth grade teacher, for instance,
cover twelve subjects and do her work
well? .The teachers who -have been
working under this new plan become
its most ardent advocates, i'
"The plan lends' itself to better
discipline., ', The pupils, by changing
irvm room tu .room lor inoir- refla
tion or stqdy periods, meet different
teachers during the day, and if thene'
is any friction it is not carried along
in the sarae room for a day or days.
In many instances a teacher wifl fol
low me same pupil in ner branch ot
the work for three or four years and
in that way is better able to determine
the pupil i abilities or usabilities.
- Pupils' Movt ArouncL.
"And another thought: A pupil
may be in the lead in arithmetic ani
hehind in geography. In the de
partmental plan he does not have, to
carry hia deficiency in the s.me room
an day and tnus he is not so easily
discouraged. The system- gives the
pupil more interest in his work." -
At the Long school, for instance,
the departmental pupils work on a
regular schedule similar to a high
school. The school day is from 9 to
11:45 a. m hud 1:15 to 3:30 p, m. Dur
ing the first twenty minutes all pupils
or ine acnooi devote ine time to
study. The rest of the school day is
divided -into 23-minute periods for
the departmental work. Three of
those -periods are used for study of
arithmetic, grammar and algebra; the
others aro for, recitations. The sev
enth and eighth , grade pupils study
spelling and history at home. No
study periods 'are required for suchfl
hrnnrha-a a,a tn,al . m.n.l inLi-- t
reading, drawing or writing. , '
At, Option ot Pupils. ;
Principal Powell tays shd will rec
ommend for the next course of study
an amendment which will give the
pupil the Option of taking 100 min
utes a week of music or drawing and
of manual training or German.
The school people are becoming
convinced that the course of studv is
becoming so top heavy that selec-
