The Construction And Flying Of Kites | by Charles M. Miller



Manual training teachers generally believe that good school instruction in the manual arts stimulates in the pupils the desire to do construction work out of school, but very few teachers have attempted to direct and develop such outside work. They have often encouraged pupils to bring home projects into the school, but they have seldom differentiated between problems especially adapted to school work and those which are preeminently home problems. Yet such a differentiation is practicable and it suggests a broadening of the teacher's influence and the enrichment of the handwork of the pupils.

The Construction And Flying Of Kites 1

The Manual Arts Press

The persistent demand for certain numbers of the Manual Training Magazine has led to the conclusion that some of the articles in these numbers ought to be reprinted. Moreover, it is believed that from time to time in the future the Magazine will publish articles which owing to their special value ought to be reprinted soon after they appear in the Magazine.

To supply this evident need the Manual Training Reprints have been planned and will be issued at irregular intervals as the demand may warrant.

The Reprints will be arranged in two series, as follows:

Series A. Illustrated articles of special practical value for class use. Series B. Discussions having special permanent value, or such as supply needed data to students preparing to become teachers.
