Nature and Nurture, Volume 27, Part 1

Front Cover
Public School Publishing Company, 1928 - Child development - 852 pages
"The Yearbook on Nature and Nurture has grown out of a suggestion made by Dr. L.M. Terman in December, 1923, that the Society might profitably initiate some research on the limitations of educability, might help to answer the question whether educational effort can or can not make bright children out of dull ones. It has been impossible in this volume to preserve the relatively simple style of presentation that has characterized many of our yearbooks which were designed to be directly helpful to the classroom teacher. It has been necessary in the present series of studies to employ intricate methods of approach and complex statistical methods of treatment. That could not be avoided, but the committee has sought to assist the lay reader by prefacing each chapter with a brief orientation, explaining the purpose, method, and outcome of the study in question and its relation to the general problem of the Yearbook. Those who think of the nature-nurture issue as a fruitful field for rhetorical debate will be disappointed in the pages that follow. No one has tried to be controversial"--Preface.
