“This book will be particularly interesting to progressive teachers, for they will find much in it that will be helpful to them, especially in guiding them to higher levels. I wish to strongly recommend it to all teachers of elementary mathematics, for it cannot fail to create new interests and desires for better things. It gives a résumé of many of the best authorities on the teaching of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, including an account of their origin and development." — Professor W. H.

THE TEACHERS' PROFESSIONAL LIBRARY

SCHOOL HYGIENE

By Edward R. Shaw, Ph.D., Dean of the Faculty of Pedagogy in the New York
University. Cloth, 12mo. $1.00 net. (Now Ready.)

This volume will mark a departure from the conventional treatment of the subject of school hygiene. The schoolroom is viewed as the unit first to be considered in the plan. ning of a school building. Accordingly, the building is regarded as the grouping of the number of schoolrooms required, with corridors, cloak-rooms, etc., and no as a building of a given size determined by the appropriation, and then divided up into schoolrooms, corridors, etc. The book is not one of open questions on school hygiene, but offers some definite conclusions. Much new material on the subject is presented. The chapters are: The Schoolroom, The School Building, School Grounds, Warming and Ventilation, School Baths, School Furniture, Postures and Physical Exercise, Eyesight and Hearing, The Hygiene of Handwriting, Fatigue, Sanitation, and Diseases which concern the School.

THE NEW BASIS OF GEOGRAPHY

By Jacques W. Redway, F.R.G.S. Cloth, 12mo. $1.00 net. (Now Ready.)

This volume is designed to point out the salient features that constitute the "new" of geography. After presenting the gradual development of human knowledge concerning the form and size of the earth, the author shows the marvellous results of discovery that followed the blockading of the trade routes between Europe and Cathay, - the discovery of the New World, the finding of an all-water route to India, the decline of the commercial power of Genoa and Venice, and the battle between the factory and the feudal system that established the centres of commerce in western Europe and in the New World

Throughout the book Mr. Redway intimately analyzes the close relation between topog. raphy and climate on the one hand, and the activities of human life on the other.

THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH

By Percival Chubb, M.A., of the Ethical Culture School, New York City. Cloth,

12mo. $1.00 net. (Now Ready.)

This book expresses the conviction that if we are to make good the serious shortcom. ings of our school training in English, it must be by more effective work, not alone or chiefly in the high school, but throughout the elementary school course. This book, therefore, devotes special attention to the work of the elementary school. It sketches a unified, progressive, rich, and well-articulated course, covering the whole period from the kindergarten through the high school, and deals with the difficulties and problems which meet the teacher in developing the student's twin powers of appreciation and expression. The treatment is practical, and the recommendations are the outcome of the writer's efforts and experiences in the class-room. It lays stress upon the fundamental need of a better liter. ary equipment of the teacher, and the consistent application of literary principles and standards in school work. Unless our teachers, the author insists, speak and read and write well, and by their exemplary influences win their pupils to good habits of thought, feeling, and language, and to worthy preferences and pleasures, no great advance can be looked for. The book aims to invest school work in English with the literary quality and attractiveness that must belong to it, if it is to be the most powerful school agency for the refinement of manners, the enrichment of intercourse, and the ennobling of character.
