Excerpt from The Teacher's Manual of Geography: I. Hints to Teachers, II. Modern Facts and Ancient Fancies

The suggestions offered in the following Manual have been prompted by experience in the school-room, as well as by that of exploration and travel. They are intended as a supplement, and not as a substitute, for the ordinary work of the teacher. They will be of no avail whatever where the only aim in the study of geography is the preparation for examination. I have thought it unnecessary to present any graded course of study. The admirable work of Professor Frye, 'Child and Nature,' leaves in that direction nothing to be desired. Mr. Nicholl's 'Topics in Geography' will also be found a most useful companion.

In the second part of the Manual I have considered some of the traditions of geography, in the light of modem science. Some of the discussions have not previously been published; and much of the material has been drawn from sources that to most educators are not readily available.

I am not of the opinion that the average teacher needs pedagogical regeneration; on the contrary, I believe that less energy devoted to improvement of methods, and a little more to the quality of the material taught, would not be amiss.

Acknowledgments are due to Miss E. M. Reed of the Training School, Springfield, Mass., for many valuable hints in the preparation of this work.
