Science Teaching in Schools

    Article metrics


    AN address given by Dr. Henry Dyer on science teaching in schools has been amplified and is now published in book form. The points dwelt upon appeal particularly to the managers and teachers of existing elementary schools, and of the secondary and technical schools now being organised in all parts of the country. In an appendix (which, by the way, is almost as long as the address itself) are given syllabuses of elementary science as taught under the London and Leicester School Boards, and the curricula of the evening classes of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. A commendable feature is the insertion of the courses of instruction at the Ecole de Commerce et de Tissage of Lyons and the Public Mercantile Educational Institute of Leipzig.
