Excerpt from Ontario Educational Association, College and High School Department: Chairman's Address, 1907

Is there any reason why at any stage, school or university, the education so far given should be the knowledge qualification for a certificate to teach, any more than to practice law or medicine? We go on the theory, in our training of teachers, that profos sional education consists ia training to teach. No other profos 'sion takes this point of view. The truth is that the year of special training should be devoted mainly to deepening and wid ening actual knowledge. This is the great concern. How little can really be done in theory What barren mockery is most of such work I do not minimize the value of traditional experi ence, but it is a mere illusion to think that its value is high at this stage. Observation of actual teaching. Friendly intercourse and discussion with one' s teachers, when now the whole point of view is changed. Are all that can really be had. The acquisi tion of fresh knowledge should engage the main energies of the teacher in training. If English grammar ever taught any one to speak correct English, or books on etiquette the graces of life, then lectures on methods may be supposed to make a teacher.
