Excerpt from Globes and Maps in Elementary Schools: A Teacher's ManualEvery intelligent dweller on the earth, whose comfort and happiness from hour to hour and even whose existence depend on the relative positions of the earth and the sun, ought to have a general knowledge of the relations of those bodies to each other, and of the causes of certain remarkable phenomena which they exhibit. It is not well for the rising generations to pass their lives unappreciative in the presence of such stupendous creations. The mind expands in the study of the greatness and power which they evidence. A correct conception of the world as a whole gives a clear understanding of the just relations of its parts. Therefore no child can justly be denied the early advantage of globe lessons; they will tend to make some geography lessons simpler, easier, and more interesting.Very few of the facts indicated in these pages are to be given to the pupils; they are to be elicited from them. A distinction should be made between telling and teaching. There would be little or no advantage to be gained by any pupil in merely committing the facts to memory and reciting them. The skillful teacher will first see that step by step the various conditions here described are illustrated by the pupils with a globe in hand, and as each step is reached will obtain from individuals correct statements of the facts observed. If the teacher has the power to make the lessons thoroughly enjoyable, so much the better. An unused globe may be an indication of some lack of preparation or of efficiency on the part of the teacher, and it is assumed that he will gladly free himself from the possibility of such a charge as he has opportunity.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
