Excerpt from A Constructive Philosophy for Child-Culture

An experience of years in the teaching of authorship to adults led me gradually to evolve a definite philosophy as a substantial basis for that guidance. The principals of the A-to-Zed School, Berkeley, on coming to understand that philosophy, and on observing its practical operation and results, agreed with me that it might be successfully applied to the general development of children, - with no purpose, however, of making authors of them. Accordingly, in the latter part of 1912 they assembled a small class of boys and girls from ten to twelve years of age. This class was taken through to the end of the school year in 1913. The results were such that later in the school year the entire composition work of the school, with modifications of method suited to high-school pupils and with the same philosophic basis, was turned over to me.
