Once a fortnight the Teacher team ventures down to Room 3 – the basement archives at the Australian Council for Educational Research.
If you happened to have missed some of our Room 3 gems, here's a recap of what's recently been posted online (you can also click on the related articles at the bottom of this article to explore other volumes):
Cunningham, K.S.. Education for Complete Living, Australian Council for Educational Research (1938)
‘It is very valuable if teachers could have had some experience in other walks of life besides teaching, because such experience will enable them to give that realistic approach to education which is so sorely needed in our schools.’ (1938)
‘We should pay attention to such matters as art, music, etc., which are too often regarded as mere frills in education, but which, if we can learn anything from the Greeks, are the very foundations of a true education.’ (1938)
‘Never was it more true than to-day that all countries are faced with the same problems of education; this means that in education much can be gained by exchange of views.’ (1938)
‘Progress in education depends upon opportunities for experimentation.’ (1938)
