For these reasons I am taking the liberty of suggesting that the excellent work of this Committee during the coming year be directed particularly to an analysis of the science of methods in teaching mental psychology (although I do not like to use the latter word)--the methods of conveying intelligence by the shortest route, the logical development of ideas, the creation of consecutive thinking ability. These are the things in which most teachers are lacking. They involve not only an understanding of the subject taught, but an understanding of the individual being taught, and a careful study of his mental operations and the phenomena of his mind action and operation.

There is no difficulty in securing an appreciation of educational values when in times of stress you are working under high pressure, and it is found that there are better ways of accomplishing the results than have been formerly employed. I think it was I who first suggested the creation of this Committee, because I recall that I was distinctly impressed during the first annual meeting of the Association I attended with the seeming lack of understanding of teaching methods advanced in the reports I read and the discussions to which I listened.
