THE GENERAL AIM OF THE SCHOOL.

H.E Rhode I s land Normal School is a professional school , whose single aim is the preparation of teachers for the elementary school s and kindergartens of the state. The q ualifications of a good teacher are both natura l a nd acquired. The former include all tha t we mean by persouality. In detail, these are:

4· 5· 6.

Adaptability a nd tact, £. e., the ability to adj ust one's self in thought, la ng uage a nd method to th e immaturity of children. A st ron g attraction for teaching, based on a genuine lo\·e of children. Intellectual ability. Executi\'e ability. Common sense. Good health and a cheerful disposition.

One who lacks any of these natural qualifications will not teach well. Since the Normal School cannot create personal ity, it cannot make teachers. Its most important function is to discover, to inspire and to train the born teacher, and to fit her into her appropriate place in the schools. The re can be no academic tests of personality. The candidate for the teaching profession is admitted to the Normal School chiefly upon evidence of her intellectual abi lity. The condition is always implied that she may be di smissed when-

GeograjJity and Geology. Facts and causal relations discovered in the study of home s urroundings prepare for the study of distant and unseen natural features, resources, industries, commerce, modes of communication, and unfamiliar peoples. The development of a few nations is considered, with its dependence upon race, climate and general geographic conditions. During the Junior year, method of teaching geography is studied and much field work is done. Geological agencies now operative are first studied; the forces producing changes, past or present, and the laws of their operation are considered; then the successive ages, with their most marked characteristics, are stud ied; the structure and development of the earth and its adaptation to the support of life are traced. This is followed by some practical work in physiography. HistOYJ' and Civics.

of adequate causes, and, in turn, lead to results capable of the clearest definition. The work of the classes in method includes a discussion of the best ways to teach the folk lore of Greeks, Romans, Norsemen and Indians, making real the daily life and industries of primitive peoples; also a discussion of how to teach the history of the United States, showing pupils the industrial and political growth of the country, and developing the form and history ,of our civi l institutions in intimate association with the history of the nation. ln all classes a n effort is made to familiarize the pupil with such of the original sources as are available to s tudents and teachers, and especially to bring the future teacher into close contact with the great masterpieces of historical writing.

Biology . The subjects of this department are physiology, biology, botany, zoology and nature study. The aim of the department is to prepare teachers of nature study; to teach them to see, to understa nd, to interpret; to g ive them a broad acquaintance a nd a real interest in nature.

Course I.-Pirysiolog)'路 The object of the course in physiology is to acquaint the student with the life-processes of the human body, and with this as a basis to give attention to the study of hygiene. Only enough anatomy is taught to make intelligible the main facts of physiology and hygiene.

hea rt, eye, ear and brain are valuable aids. The fun damental physiological facts are presented in their broad o utlines as far as possible by constant in d uction from, and reference to, the facts of daily experi ence. In this way the facts taught are brought to bear on the h.ygienic conduct of life . Simple laboratory experiments a re used. A stud y of th e effects of alcoholics a nd narcoti cs on the di gestive, circulatory and ,n ervous systems is made a pa rt of the course. ,

A study, in their seasons and in their na tura l relations, of plant a nd animal forms which can be used to advantage in grade work. The course, therefore, g ives much laboratory study of living material and much field work. Practice is given in stocking and k eeping aquari a. Nati ve birds are studied in the field. Seeds, bulbs and buds; fishes, amphibia and reptiles; insects a nd their development through the larva to the adu lt ; common minerals and rocks ; flowers and the relations of flowers to insects; trees, ferns, etc., form subjects of study.

Obseryation of nature-study lessons in the grades is a part of th e co urse. Pll)'Sical Scie??Ce. The work in physics and chemistry consists of experiments performed by the students, under the s upervi sion of the teache r, with the prepara tion of a labora tory notebook. The student is led to derive th e laws 'o f physics from the laboratory experiences and is taught to observe the phenomena of chemistry. By means of lectures general principles are stated, a nd attention is called to th e appl ications of these principles to common affa irs.
