THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By F Hubbard
Used As Illustration Of
A heavy stress was placed on the
value of a yearbook such as that
compiled by the Department of Su-
perintendence in a lecture delivered
yesterday afternoon in the University
High School Auditorium by Dr. Frank
W. Hubbard, associate director of the
research division of the National Ed-
Dr. Hubbard placed emphasis on
the usefulness of a yearbook in pick-
ing out the more useful and promis-
ing material for educators in fields
such as Special Studies. He men-
tioned specifically the 1936 Yearbook
of the Department of Superinten-
This particular yearbook grew out
of the need to realize whither are
Social Studies going. Likewise the
Commission compiling the yearbook
felt that our society for many years
has been developing unevenly and
that anti-social conditions have
arisen. The question arises, says
Dr. Hubbard who helped in editing
this yearbook, whether the Social
Studies can serve as a corrective.
Expects Ideal Attwnents
"Naturally, we are going to have a
period of trial and exploration but
out of this transition period, may we
not fill the need for a development
of social goals, gain a greater knowl-
edge of the social processes and also
of group life?" Dr. Hubbard queried.
Dr. Hubbard brought out the fact
that the members of the Commission
who collaborated in writing this year-
book were scholars of diverse views,
training and interests. Some of the
important figures were Charles A.
Beard, .Dr. George S. Counts, Dr.
Frank N. Freeman of Chicago, Dr.
Howard E. Wilson of Harvard and Dr.
Paul T. Rankin° of Detroit. These
men were in agreement that we are
going to have a democratic system of
government in the future. However
they felt that the commission should
not try "to write a blueprint of society
for the future." The Social Studies
can only recognize that changes will
occur and in the light of those
changes attempt not only to keep
abreast but point the way, Dr. Hub-
14 Basic Assumptions
Dr. Hubbard mentioned the four-
teen basic assumptions that the Com-
mission agreed upon. These are:
1. To revise the Social Studies
curriculum continuously in the light
of changing needs and in the light of
2. There are in many public
schools today Social Studies courses
of merit but most of these programs
can be and should be improved.
3. New materials should be woven
into the curriculum to replace ob-
4. Although basically the curricu-
lum is the same throughout the coun-
try yet peculiar local ideas and dif-
ference should be appreciated.
5. It is necessary to include con-
troversial issues to give us a more
6. Schools cannot deal with all
controversial issues with equal pro-
priety. At times there may be eco-
nomic reasons that may temporarily
interfere with the program.
Teachers As Guides
7. The function of the teacher
is not to indoctrinate but to guide.
The teachers role is a judicial one.
8. The child and teacher contacts
are the very center of the Social
9. Techniques and devices in
teaching are important but should
merely be means to an end.
10. No program is complete with-
out systematic appraisal by tests,
teacher's judgments, etc.
11. Since learning and not teach-
ing is of first importance emphasis
should be placed on procedures that
help students appraise their own
12. The local community should
be a laboratory for the Social Studies
13. The Yearbook is really a
sourcebook for the guidance of those
in the field of Social Studies.
14. There is a vital relationship
between the Social Studies and other
fields such as art, languages, litera-
ture and even the forces outside of
the school proper.
