A One-Room School (Historic Communities) (Paperback)
Once an early settler community had established itself, its first priority was building a school. Students of all ages shared one teacher and the same four walls year after year. A One-Room School describes how the teacher, a respected member of the community, was entrusted with the responsibility of teaching reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic. Children will enjoy seeing inside a one-room schoolhouse and discovering: - what subjects students learned - how children were disciplined by the teacher - games boys and girls enjoyed during recess - games, songs, and activities they can participate in.
