Excerpt from The Eighteenth Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, 1919, Vol. 1: The Professional Preparation of High-School Teachers
In 1914, Professor S. C. Parker, then Secretary of the Society, suggested to Professor H. L. Miller that he present to the Society an account of the methods developed by him at the University of Wisconsin for the preparation of secondary-school teachers. Later Professor Miller consented to act informally as chairman of a group of persons who should cooperate in the production of a Year book dealing with the Organization and Administration of Prac tice Schools Generally. This undertaking expanded in various directions until it became necessary, from practical expediency, to limit the scope of the project for the time being to the training of high-school teachers only. We have been fortunate enough in this connection to arrange for the inclusion with Professor Miller 's group of a report Of a Committee of the Society of College Teachers of Education that was investigating the use Of practice schools in training high-school teachers.
The present Yearbook, then, comprises three sections. In Sec tion 1 appears Professor Miller's original manuscript describing the plan of preparing teachers at the University of Wisconsin. This plan is novel enough to challenge the attention of all readers, since it involves a theory of classroom procedure applicable to any high school, whether concerned with teacher training or not.
