THE TEACHER ESSAYS AND ADDRESSES ON EDUCATION BY GEORGE HERBERT PALMER AND ALICE FREEMAN PALMER BOSTON AND NEW YORK HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY The Riverside Press Cambridge 1908 COPYRIGHT, 1908, BY GEORGE HERBERT PALMER ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Published November 1908 SECOND IMPRESSION PREFACE The papers of this volume fall into three groups, two of the three being written by myself. From my writings on education I have selected only those which may have some claim to permanent interest, and all but two have been tested by previous publication. Those of the first group deal with questions about which we teachers, eager about our immeasurable art beyond most professional persons, never cease to wonder and debate: What is teaching? How far may it influence character? Can it be practiced on persons too busy or too poor to come to our class-rooms? To subjects of what scope should it be applied? And how shall we content ourselves with its necessary limitations? Under these diverse headings a kind of philosophy of education is outlined. The last two papers, having been given as lectures and stenographically reported, I have left in their original colloquial form. A group of papers on Harvard follows, preceded by an explanatory note, and the volume closes with a few papers by Mrs. Palmer. She and I often talked of preparing together a book on education. Now, alone, I gather up these fragments. CONTENTS PAGE I. PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL AND COLLEGE I. The Ideal Teacher 3 II. Ethical Instruction in the Schools 31 III. Moral Instruction in the Schools 49 IV.
