The aim of this book is to make the study of teaching scientific and practical scientific in the sense of dealing with verifiable facts rather than attractive opinions, practical in the sense of giving knowledge and power that will make a difference in the actual work of teaching. It follows the example of the better books on education in basing principles of teaching upon the laws of psychology; it makes use of modern scientific psychology and especially of recent investigations in genetic and dynamic psychology ;it seeks to make use also of the direct studies of teaching itself which have been made by qualified experts; it is arranged as a manual to guide the student in applying principles himself rather than as a series of discussions to be thought out or, more often, to be simply absorbed. The book demands of students knowledge of the elements of psychology, particularly of dynamic psychology. The references entitled Preparatory (or their equivalent) will fulfill this prerequisite. These references are to the authors Elements of Psychology, which is in a sense an introduction to the present volume, but any standard course in psychology which gives due emphasis to the laws of mental connections will supply the preparation needed. Scientific principles are the back-bone of knowledge of teaching but concrete exercises are its flesh and blood. For the work of the student of teaching is to get practical control of principles by using them.
