THE following hints are published in the hope that they may prove useful :
(1) To Teachers, as comprising instructions which they have repeatedly to impress upon their assistants.
(2) To Managers, as aids towards forming a right estimate of the tone, discipline, and methods of instruction which prevail in their schools.
It is conceivable also that persons engaged in teaching children of the upper and middle classes may learn something by studying methods which have produced good results in elementary schools.
No official sanction whatever attaches to any of the views here set forth. They are the result of a personal experience of twenty-five years spent in educational work by one who feels more every year how much he has yet to learn.
