Excerpt: ... collecting the material needed for a lesson; in another case these same things were all to be found in the school room--they had been brought in by the children and preserved. " As-the preparation for these plans means so much work which must fall upon a number of individual teachers it would seem advisable that there be prepared lesson plans to accompany such readers as the Commissioners of Education see fit to adopt. Also, a plan book might be prepared for our "Course of Study." Such plans would not only afford the teachers more time to devote to other lessons, but would also serve as a guide in that work. It is believed that good use will be made of any assistance that may be given along the lines suggested above. The schools of Hawaii have been spoken encouragingly of, and, it is believed, justly so; good work has been done in bringing them up to their state of efliciency for which no credit belongs to the present Normal Instructor, but to those who have immediately preceded him in this work, and who have made possible such work as he has done. 0As has already been intimated this improvement is due chiefly to the influence exerted through the Summer School, with its resultant Island and District Teachers' Associations, which, being conceived under our present Superintendent, was carried to completion through the efforts of our late Inspector General, Mr. Townsend. Also, too much credit cannot be given to our late Normal Instructor, Mr. T. H. Gibson, who has left visible evidence of one phase of his work in improved schoolyards and schoolrooms, and who had prepared the way so thor oughly that it was not possible for his successor to avoid the path. Respectfully submitted, CHARLES W. BALDWIN, NORMAL more
