Teaching whether in the schoolroom or on the playground is more interesting today than it has ever been before. Educators have come to realize the truth of Dewey's words, Learning Is experience is learning, consequently, the classroom and the playground becomes a workshop in which the children are judged and directed into participation In activities which are meaningful to them.

The great change that has taken place in education presents a distinct challenge to supervisors and classroom teachers. They must build up new methods to replace those which have proven inadequate. They must provide a background and environment which will stimulate the class to progress from one life experience into the next. They must also recognize their materials and direct teaching with clearness of vision, always keeping in mind the goals for which they are striving. And lastly they must have ability to compare, weigh, and judge the values of the enterprises undertaken In the classroom and on the playground.
