ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the practices of teaching methods. The history of educational thought and practices is being studied as never before, and great numbers are listening to fresh expoundings of the philosophy of education. Every form of educational effort finds some representation of its material therein. In trying to understand the efforts to pursue the problems of education in a scientific manner, one must be immediately assured the term scientific is not one which one can juggle impunity. In general science is supposed to consist in a method of experimentation on the one hand and of proof on the other. This method of experimentation or science in descriptive terms, is not primarily determined by a wide-spreading sensuous basis in the experience to which it refers. There must be drawn clearly a possible line of demarcation between the scientific modes of thinking in descriptive and in explanatory terms, on the one hand and those practical categories which are of most value in the concrete pupil-thinking of the teacher, on the other hand.
