The Professional Education of High School Teachers

“This is an analysis and evaluation of the prescribed courses in education for prospective high school teachers at the University of Minnesota. Mr. Peik has made an excellent analytic study and has secured valid judgments from alumni on the usefulness in their work of particular courses they studied in college. He has been able to rank courses in their order of usefulness and state within each course studied that portion of the content which is most important.”
