Excerpt from Psychology as Applied to Education

This book does not attempt to cover the whole field of modem psychology. Its scope is limited to those aspects of the vast subject which form the basis for rational education. It aims not only to present these principles in compact form, but also to show their practical application to the problems of the schoolroom.

This work has "grown up" in the classroom. There is scarcely a sentence in the book that has not been used repeatedly in the author's classes in psychology. The author has found it a good plan in his own teaching of the subject to require every pupil to bring to class a written summary of the previous lesson. At the beginning of each recitation there is a brief review and a few of the pupils read their written summaries. These summaries, besides being brief general statements, should also contain a liberal number of examples and illustrations.

In the recitations, the teacher should insist especially on these two points: (a) numerous and varied illustrations and examples, as it is only through the gate of the concrete that a saving knowledge of anything can ever be reached; and (b) exact and clear definitions, showing that the pupil has grasped the coordinating principles which underlie the concrete instances. To aid in this work, most chapters have appended a set of exercises that have been found helpful.
