Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEN THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD, FRJDAY, OCTOftER 22, The Palace Meat TEACHERS' CONVENTION President Tory Speaks Pleas- ant At-Home ALWAYS HAS ON HAND A' FULL SUPPLY OF ALL KINDS OF FRESH. AND CURED The afternoon session of the teach- ers' convention opened with a dis- cussion of the previous papers of the morning in which some added prac- tical hints were suggested by the teachers. The first paper of the afternoon was read by E. R. Davidson, of the city schools, on the subject of "Civics j in "the Public School." He stated that as it wns the aim of education to train s.nd develop good citizenship the pupil should be taught a know- ledge of his social and political sur-j roundings and the development of the race. It was not sufficient to know the forms of government as they ex- j a isted. Fellow Ratepayers: In conformity with a pledge made to sev- eral of you a year ago, I present, myself as an Aldermanic Candidate for the coming year. If elected, I will identify your interests with my own in every way. If rejected, the loss or gain will be yours.

Civics was to be studied largely as a part of history. The pupil should come to realize that progress comes- by makin past.

The duty of the school was to train its future citizens to tne responsibilities of citizenship and therefore specific instruction should be given in the duties and re- sponsibilities of the Canadian citizen- He went on to outline a course in the subject of civics for public school classes, stating the points that should be taught and the methods of present- ing them to the classes. that stand foremost in the world's events in every linee.

He pointed out that the practical' classifications of attentions were into passive, active and second- ary passive forms. The primitive creature moved 'be- cause of its: life. This movement- evolves in town to conscious, volun- tary movement, and later to the per- iod of choice which by the repetition of a chosen line of conduct'became a habit. "Where a habit is, atten- tion has been a true The trivial mannerisms of adult life-were the consequences of once conscious actions. Every conscious act perform- ed left" an indtiW.e trace '-n vous structure. The way to establish habit .was :to launch it violently. There musut "be active attention. The secret of good memory was ting and good getting was absolutely dependent, on atteniion. Attention' was the "narrowing of the and because" so- only one idea ..could be att-endel to at once. We should turn the focus of the mind directly oh: the idea we visli ;to re- tain, not look at it through the cor- ner of the mind's eye. !x..e conditions for securing atten- tion were enumerated by the speaker and explained at sofe length. The previous experience of the pupil must be considered, the present condition of mind had to be taken Into account. The bodily or-mental feelings played a large part in the receptrveness of the child mind. The way in which situation was presented and the bodily adjustment of the child to re- vive the situation were also import-' ,nt. factors. The most usual cause for inatten- tion in children was that the atten- tion was fixed on .some entraneous matter.. Dr. Tory, President of ,the Alberta University, .who was present at the meeting, was; .asked to address the convention, and statsd that- he was glad to meet the teachers here be- cause he was himself a teacher. .He objected: to the idea expressed -by Ber- nard Shaw that the teacher is not a "doer." The teacher was a most ef- fective unit in a community. If -the mouths of the teaching profession were closed the wheels of progress would stand' still and civilization would retrograde. The teachers should sufficiently magnify their office that they were iiot to be disregarded under any circumstances. -He also briefly outlined his purpose in visiting Leth- bridge and the contemplalted series of extension lectures which he -hopec would be delivered in the cities of the province throughout the coming winter.
