The Role of the Teacher in the Infant and Nursery School covers chapters about the role of the teacher in primary school. The book discusses the developments in English infant and nursery schools and of the teachers' functions; the acknowledgment of some other work in teaching field; the scope and method of conducting the enquiry; and results of the analysis of the most important motive behind the actions of the teachers. The text describes the techniques used by different teachers, techniques used by teachers of different age-groups in the infant school, and analysis of the teaching given in free choice periods under ""Subjects"" of the school curriculum. The aspects of the teachers' work which are relevant to informal teaching, but on which evidence cannot be obtained by samples taken during periods of free occupation, and some opinions of the teachers are also considered. Educators, especially those from the primary school, will find the book invaluable.
