Abstract

The basic problem confronting all teachers is how to help each student develop himself to full capacity, mentally and socially. Lack of student interest is often an important factor in the consideration of poor school records. This lack of interest is especially apparent in such courses as government and history. Various educators have suggested improved methods of instruction as one answer to this problem. Proponents of socialized recitation claim that the emphasis must be taken from the teacher and placed on the pupils. They believe that attitudes developed through study and classroom procedures are more important than the acquisition of knowledge. The aim of this study is to compare the achievement records of two United States History classes, in which different teaching procedures were used, and to find out which group made the most progress.
