Excerpt from Geography for the Fifth and Sixth Grades: A Course of Study and Teachers' Manual

Any one who has given the subject much thought knows the difficulty of writing a text-book in Home Geography, because each region has its own particular surroundings; each community has its own particular makeup and popular customs; each school its own particular problems, many of which cannot be foreseen and especially by any one outside of the school itself.

Since schools are made up of the children of parents in all vocations and in all sorts of conditions of advancement, the knowledge that the pupils possess will vary from school to school, and in fact from year to year in the same school. This will necessitate a slight readjustment in the textbook from place to place and from year to year in the same place. For some localities it will be useless to emphasize certain things that are so common that not a shadow of a doubt remains as to whether or.not the children have seen these things and know them thoroughly. To give several lessons on a subject already familiar to them and not bring in new material to supplement the old, is apt to get them disinterested and to brand the geography work from the start. As a bore. So when home geography does not awaken the interest it should or does not drive home the information desired, it is not the fault of the writer of the book used, but more often the fault of the region and the community for not being like every other region or community. Then, too, the teacher may well look to herself for a part, at least, of the explanation as to why they are not interested in the most essential as well as the most interesting of all geography.
