Excerpt from A Shorter Course in Woodworking: A Practical Manual for Home and School
Teachers, parents, business men, and mechanics are demanding that the training of youth be more practical. A satisfactory system must meet the demands of the pupil or the individual student, that his interest and enthusiasm maybe so aroused as to call forth his best efforts; of the educator, that the subject may be presented to the pupil in the way best for his general development; of the mechanic, that the most practical methods may be adopted; and of the business man that the pupils be trained in up-to-date methods and modern ways of thinking.
This book is not meant to conﬂict with courses in woodworking now in use, but rather to fit in with any system; for the approved methods of work - the result of the experience of. Generations of workmen - should be known to all teachers, pupils, and individual students.
No set course of procedure can be adopted by all, nor is there any necessarily logical order in which many of the tools and Operations must be taken up, although some are naturally brought into use before others. Therefore the material in this book is so arranged that it can be used in any order, and any desired topic can be referred to readily.
When class exercises are begun with oral and manual demonstra tions many pupils do not readily grasp and assimilate the new ideas, technical terms, and details during one demonstration by the teacher, and it is believed that a general manual which can be used as a text book and reference-book will be helpful and time-saving to both teacher and pupil.
