A Comparison In The Efficiency Of The Teaching Of Arithmetic In Grades Four To Eight, Inclusive, In The Standard And Non-Standard, One-Room Rural Schools Of Western Kansas, Roy Ernest Mohr

Master's Theses

Considerable discussion regarding the effectiveness of the teaching in the one-room rural school versus the standard school has been going on for some time, and it is hoped that the results of this study will throw some light on this subject which appears to be more or less perplexing at the present time.
