The most practical work of this department-is the practice teaching. 
All students teach at least five subjects and all have twenty weeks ex- 
perience in teaching from the first. to the seventh grade. Classes are 
small for the purpose of stressing method of teaching in preference to 
disci1)line. The grade teachers give twenty-five model teaching lessons 
for observatiot for the practice teachers during the year. Their hedry 
,oo)peration and the splendid demonstration lessons are very much ap- 
preciated by both the students and the training teachers. Each student, 
besides this, spends two weeks during the year in rural schools with 
experienced teache's in further preparation for teaching. They always 
return to school with fine reports of the good work they have seen in 
the rural schools, and with a feeling that the rural teachers have cooper-
ated most splendidly with the Training Department and have done every- 
thing possible to help them during their visits.
