The T. J. Majors Training School
S. L. Clements
THE T. J. Majors Training School, pictured above is excelled by no other training school building in the middle west, nor is its equipment excelled. Each year there are approximately three hundred fifty pupils enrolled in the training school from the kindergarten through the twelfth grade. The 6 3-3 type of organization is used.
The purpose of the school, as is indicated by its name, is to provide a means by which the college students may observe expert teaching and in which they may do their practice teaching, under proper supervision, as part of their college training for the teaching profession. In so far as possible the student teachers
have classroom situations which are typical of the situations which they will meet later. There are about two hundred college students each year who do practice teaching in this training school.
The classroom and laboratory equipment is of the best kind. Educational programs over the radio are received by the school radio. A Bausch and Lomb Balopticon and an Eastman Kodoscopc motion picture camera and projector are used for visual aids in instruction and vitalization of the courses. The movie is also used to keep records of the school in pictures. The old practice football field is of regulation size now, the old one having been enlarged.

SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
High School Operetta " Patricia
From the standpoint of the pupil, the quality of the teaching of the student teacher under careful supervision compares favorably with average teaching. Graduates of the Training School have made a very fair showing in college. The Training School is well represented in every list of college honor students. Student teachers arc well liked by the pupils; among the younger pupils one hears many expressions of attachment for this or that student teacher, while in high school, a wholesome spirit of co-operation exists between the pupils, student teachers and supervisors.
The Training School as a means of developing skill on part of the young teacher is growing in favor with educators. It is increasingly recognized as being essential in the training of teachers. Because of this recognition, newer and more stringent standards for training schools have been adopted by accrediting agencies. Our school measured up to these newer standards.
THE Training School is the place in which the novice teacher gets the first experience in handling a class. It is here that worries over lesson-plans, discipline, and hard-boiled supervisors begin. Also, here it is, where many first find the real joy and satisfaction which come through leading and guiding children in the learning processes, through being instrumental in their development. Although some student teachers find teaching irksome, many enjoy it. Practically every student teacher is vitally interested in the success of his group. It is quite common for one finishing his own teaching to concern himself about his successor and express satisfaction or regret according to the desirability of the successor.
