subjects. This is the problem which
confronts elementary school educators'
" At first, an attempt to solve this
problem was made by the introduc-
tion of so-called departmental work,
where the pupils went from the home-
room to various other rooms where
specaal subjects were taught. This plan1
was successful until the buildings
could no longer accommodate the i4-
creasing numbers of pupils. As manyl
of the rooms were left vacant at var-
ious times when the pupils were in the1
rooms where specialized work was1
done, a remedy was needed for *this
waste of room. space."
Worked Out "Solution
Mr. Spain then explained how this
remedy was found in the "Platoon
System," which is at present being
operated in several of the schools in
Detroit. As now arranged, the pupils
are divided into two groups. The first
group rem~ns in the "home-room" fora
the first half of the morning, where
their regular teacherhinstructs themi
in the "three R's". The second grou. '
at the same time, is in the variouss
special rooms,twhere, the special sub-"
jects are taught. The groups then I
change places, and thus the second I
half of the morning is spent. The aft-
ernoon is a repetition of the morning.
In addition to the work in the hpme-k
rooms and the special rooms, there is
the auditorium, in which all the stu-
dents gather once a day, for music,
talks which will be of benefit in the
socializing of the foreigners, and forj
celebration of special events. There is
also a co-operative arrangement with
the city library, so that all its advant-
