Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy ETDs

Publication Date



The advent of the twentieth century brought with it an increased concern about education, curricula, teachers, and the approaches used in the classroom by teachers. A history of American education could be written in terms of "movements" and "emphases." During the course of each movement, its advocates were likely to become over-enthusiastic about some teaching device, method, or technique. Somehow, the impression would be created that they found the answers to all significant educational problems. In recent years, many people have felt that the teacher and his abilities are not enough to impart knowledge to the students. Teaching devices, visual aids, and games have been invented, and many new ways have been devised to approach the serious problem of learning.
