Excerpt from Object Teaching: A Lecture; Delivered at the Pupil Teacher Centre, William Street Board School, Hammersmith, May 13, 1882; With an Appendix on the Use of the Box of Apparatus

Object lessons, as a part of school teaching, owe their origin to an ancient book and to a little boy. The ancient book is the Orbis Pictus of that great educa tional reformer, Comenius. This book had a wonderful sale throughout Germany, and was translated into many languages. In it was started, I believe, the idea of this kind of teaching. The little boy was a scholar of Pestalozzi's school, in which this book was being used.1 When they came to the picture of a ladder, the little boy said that there was a real ladder out in the garden, and they might bring it in. The teacher said that would be very troublesome, so he was content with the picture. But on another day they were talking about a window, and the same little boy, who was not to be put down so easily, said that there was a window already in the schoolroom.
