Talks to Sunday School Teachers
George H. Doran Company, 1920 - 178 من الصفحات
"This book is in a sense a supplement to The Pupil and the Teacher, as it is my response to the request that I write in fuller and more concrete detail concerning certain topics briefly referred to in that book. It has, however, a body of its own, and is published in the hope that parents and Sunday school teachers may be helped by these talks to gain further insight into the psychology of boys and girls and a better understanding of some of the pedagogical problems involved in their religious education. That it may be the better available for use by teacher-training or parents' classes, or as a basis for a series of Sunday school workers' conferences, questions for discussion and a brief bibliography are appended to each chapter"--Preface.

Following its career through various steps, we find ourselves in imagination in the presence of the consequences that would follow: and as we then like and approve, or dislike and disapprove, these consequences, we find the original impulse or plan good or bad.
الصفحة 81 - The whole story of our dealings with the lower wild animals is the history of our taking advantage of the way in which they judge of everything by its mere label, as it were, so as to ensnare or kill them.
