Educational Foundations and Curriculum
A knowledge and understanding of the material with which one is to work, based on realistic and firsthand contacts, is accepted as part of an adequate program of preparation for any vocation. To that end, many teachers colleges are experimenting with programs which give young people many direct contacts with children. The way in which such experiences are a part of the total educational program at Central Washington College of Education, Ellensburg, Washington, is told by Mabel T. Anderson, instructor in child development, and Amanda Hebeler, director of teacher training.
