Silent and oral objectives and procedures have produced marked results where the teaching has to be skillful, therefore the teachers who have the clearest aims or objectives are those who do the best work. In order to do her best work the teacher must not only know the children committed to her care, but must have a knowledge of home life, the family life, and cultural opportunities, She should know something of the ways people make a living and the type of recreational opportunities offered In the immediate community. It Is encouraging to note the Improvement yet this Is a subject that needs considerable study. Let each conscientious teacher realize that "Education is growth" and work to that end.
