PREFACE

The Introduction gives the reasons of the authors for preparing this book.

It is hoped that the book will be of real help to all those who are actually teaching as well as to those planning to do so and to those responsible for the supervision or administration of the teaching of agriculture. From beginning to end, it is planned as a teachers' book. It does not contain any treatment of agricultural subject matter or the facts of pure agriculture. It is intended for use in teacher training courses in colleges and normal schools, and any high schools offering such courses. It is also intended for every teacher who wishes to teach agriculture. Teachers' reading circles will find the book suited to their needs, if they wish to study the teaching of this subject.

The book is free from long lists of subjects quoted from the tables of contents of books of agriculture. Neither does it contain such lists taken from the outlines so freely published by many state boards and departments of education. For such tables and lists, the user of this book is referred to the numerous texts on the subject matter of agriculture and the various state reports and official bulletins.

Acknowledgments. The illustrations have been furnished largely by teachers of vocational agriculture in the various states. Under the picture, usually, credit is given in each case, except those supplied by the authors.

To our own students, who have actively coöperated in supplying suggestions, materials, and the necessary inspiration for this book, we are extremely grateful. To Mrs. Fanny Waugh Davis and Mrs. Elizabeth Hayler Storm the authors join in expressing appreciation for valuable assistance in preparing the manuscript and reading proofs.

Several experts in special lines have read, criticized, and otherwise materially aided us in preparing certain chapters. Credit is due Frederick L. Griffin, of the University of California, for many valuable suggestions, and to John V. Ankeney, of the University of Minnesota, for aiding with the chapter on Charts, Slides, and Films; to Andrew Boss, of the University of Minnesota, for examining the manuscript of the chapter on How to Teach Farm Manage-
ment; to C. H. Lane, chief, Agricultural Education Service of
the Federal Board for Vocational Education, for examining and
criticizing the proofs.

Those who use the hook are urged to write to one of the authors

and give criticisms and suggestions for the further improvement

of it.
