dc.description.abstractThis thesis describes an attempt to remedy some of the defects of the modern elementary curriculum. That there were such defects has been felt by the author since he first taught in a rural school. As a result of courses in Education in the University of Missouri, particularly of the courses in Educational Psychology, and in Elementary Education, under Dr. J. L. Meriam; Educational Psychology under Dr. A. Ross Hill and in Principles of Education and Philosophy of Education under Dr. Jesse Coursault; the nature and extent of these defects became more apparent. Through the inspiration of Dr. J. L. Meriam, the author began work upon the alleviation of these defects, as principal of the Teachers College Elementary School. After experimenting one year with the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh grades, an hypothesis for a course of study in the seventh grade was formulated and tested in that grade of the Teachers College Elementary School. This experiment, with its conclusions, forms the subject matter for the following thesis.eng
