THE BREAD WINNERS AND HOME

MAKERS OF OUR REPUBLIC

Of our multitude of pupils only a small number enter high school, yet those who terminate their school career thus early become bread winners and home makers, and constitute a large proportion of our citizens. These young people leave school almost totally ignorant of sources of supply and processes of manufacture of our most common commodities. A knowledge of the world's great industries would give them additional power in solving the problems of life, and also make them more useful citizens.

ROCHELEAU’S "Geography of Commerce and Industry has been prepared to meet the needs of all such pupils and those who enter high school. It recognizes the dearth of reference works on many of the subjects treated and has given the leading industries such treatment as to make each chapter a unit.

A Project-Method for Community Civics

OUTLINES of COMMUNITY CIVICS

By MAUD BLMA KINGSLBY, A. M. and FRANK HERBERT PALMER, A. M.

BLEMENTARY: OUTLINE 1. For Towns and Rural Schools, 30c. OUTLINE 2. For Cities, 30c.

ADVANCED : OUTLINE 3. For both Towns and Cities, 30c.

1 The aim of these Outlines is to select the facts that are really essential, aid the pupil in acquiring

a first hand knowledge of his own community, and make him conscious of his responsibility for
the common welfare.
The pupil is encouraged to collect information, including pictures and printed matter, relating to
his community life. This can be gathered from many sources—local papers and mag.
azines, town reports, photographs, postcards, etc. Original sketching and composition work is
encouraged. The material gathered is fastened with the Outlines, within the Loose-leaf covers
for permanent preservation. It is first discussed in the class and approved by the teacher. The
plan gives scope for originality and stimulates ambition. It correlates with language work,
drawing, history, and other subjects. No other text-book of Civics is necessary. The Outline
suffices. The plan is thus economical.
Loose-leaf covers, punched and eyeletted to receive the Outlines, 30 cents.

Special terms will be arranged for Adoptions.

By CHARLES EDGAR FINCH
Director of Junior High School Grades and Citizenship

Rochester, N. Y.
HIS book makes action rather than a mere

knowledge of facts the basis of citizenship

training. At the outset it gives an attractive plan for organizing the class as a club and for paralieling its activities with those relating to government. It impresses upon the student the fact that citizenship is something to be lived rather than talked about ; that a good citizen must be intelligent, well-informed, active, ever on the alert for opportunities to render service ; that he must be always willing to do his part whether it be in backing some needed reform or in serving his fellow citizens in some office of public trust. Vital Features of Each Chapter 'HE main topic treated in each chapter is pre

sented at the beginning in the form of a

problem, stated so clearly, simply and concisely that the pupil's attention is challenged and bis thoughts are directed along the lines of the discussion that follows.

SPECIAL summary expressed in a single
sentence closes each chapter and presents

the keynote of the thought in a way that will be an inspiration to the pupil. Here also are suggestions for investigation, discussion and action which are intended to indicate ways of applying the principles in the text to the student's community.
