The Evolution Of Schools Of Phillips County, Kansas, Clarence A. Schamber Jul 1949

The Evolution Of Schools Of Phillips County, Kansas, Clarence A. Schamber

Master's Theses

The development of schools in the various counties throughout Western Kansas is often taken as a matter of course by many people. However, the growth that has taken place since the first school was conducted in a dugout or maybe in a sodhouse out on the prairie which had to be guarded against Indian attacks and buffalo herds, to our present elaborate and modern system of education is not a mere matter of incidence. Every student of political science considers the period of settlement on the western prairie as one of the most interesting and courageous in American history. Likewise ...

The Growth Of Elementary And Secondary Education In Russell County, Kansas, Elmer L. Dougherty Aug 1940

The Growth Of Elementary And Secondary Education In Russell County, Kansas, Elmer L. Dougherty

Master's Theses

Throughout this work we shall carry one phase of the growth of education as it applies to a restricted geographical area. We must note from the beginning that the available material is very fragmentary even in a country whose existence spans only slightly more than half a century. No attempt was made by school administrators to keep an accurate history of their school systems. Records have been lost or misplaced. As a result, at this date it is impossible to clearly picture every part of the whole educational system within this restricted area , but the evidence which is still available ...

The Administration Of The Finances Of Extra-Curricular Activities In High Schools Of North Central Kansas., Martin H. Isaacson

Master's Theses

School administrators and the public in general are realizing the important place that extra-curricular activities have in the modern high school. Witness for example the large number of discussions and the many articles written on various phases of this subject. A steadily growing appreciation of their value as a means of training pupils in the practical arts of citizenship is among the factors which account for this conviction.

Under such conditions there is splendid opportunity for developing desirable character ...

Supplementary Reading Materials For Primary Grades Based On Children's Reading Interests And On Natural And Factual Data Pertaining To Kansas, Miriam Picking

Master's Theses

Childhood education has made rapid advancement during the past quarter of a century. It is no longer considered by leading educators as something to be imposed from without, but is rather thought of as the gradual unfolding of life from within.

From the child's point of view such factors as innate ability, social traits, also the physical development as well as mental development, as well as mental development, serve as guides in setting up goals of achievement for the primary school grades. In the selection ...
