Excerpt from A Manual Containing the Course of Study: For the Elementary Schools of West Virginia In 1908 the State Legislature passed an act creating a State Board of Education. One of the duties of this Board is to prepare and publish a State Course of Study for Elementary and High Schools. In compliance with this statute the Board prepared and, issued in 1909 a Manual of the courses of study for both elementary and high schools in a single volume. In 1912 the Board revised the courses of study for both elementary and high schools, but issued separate manuals for these two kinds of schools. This manual is a revision, in 1914, of the elementary manual issued in 1912. For the sake of convenience of references this manual is divided into three sections. Section I contains several special articles written by individual members of the Board and the Daily Program of Studies. Section II contains an Outline of Studies by grades, indicating the text-book to be used, and the amount of each to be completed each year, or half-year. Section III contains a detailed outline of studies by subjects. For immediate reference Section II will be sufficient; but questions as to how to teach any given subject, and just what to teach, will be answered in Section III. Throughout Section II references are frequently made to Section III. Teachers are urged to study Section III as a text on pedagogy; for in this section most of the questions that confront the teacher in her daily class work are answered. For the next year or two, at least, the examination for renewal of teachers' certificates and some of the questions on Theory and Art in the State Uniform Examinations will be taken from this manual.
