The Teaching of Citizenship free pdf Excerpt from The Teaching of Citizenship: An Outline for Grades One to Nine Inclusive In 1919 the Iowa Legislature passed a law requiring the teaching of citizenship in all grades. Mr. H. C. Moeller, County Superintendent of Schools in Black Hawk County, asked the Extension Department of Iowa State Teachers College to prepare for his teachers an outline for such teaching. It was at the suggestion of Mr. Irving Hart, Director of the Extension Department, that I prepared the outline requested. The outline was prepared in the form of a series of lessons and presented to the teachers of Black Hawk County in General Study Centers in 1919-20. These lessons were put out in pamphlet form the following year by the Extension Department and distributed to the teachers of Iowa. It is this material that forms the basis for the present manual. Cooperation of citizens is the keynote of the manual. The idea of membership in certain groups is, therefore, introduced as the experience of the pupils can grasp such relationships. The pupils thus gradually come to realize what our government means to them and what duties they owe the government. As the opening exercise and special holidays afford an excellent chance for the teaching of American ideals and patriotism, the first pages of the outline give suggestive material for such occasions. For the work with the first six grades the topic method is used. For the higher grades such method was possible only in part, since the manual for these grades is prepared to supplement a definite text, Guitteau's Preparing for Citizenship. Throughout the outline the importance of relating the teaching to the child's experience is stressed. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
