LARGE NUMBERS ATTEND 1922 SUMMER SCHOOL
More Than 2,000 Take Advantage of 150 Courses Offered by University--Educational Subjects Emphasized--Freshman Dormitories Used
With an enrollment of more than 2,000 men and women the University Summer School closed August 19 after one of the most successful sessions of its history. The school started July 10 with the three Freshman dormitories providing the chief rooming facilities for the students. Gore and Standish Halls were reserved for women.
Nearly 150 courses were in last summer's curriculum, the largest number that have ever been offered. Of these 10 were courses in the field of education alone, covering such subjects as principles of education, its history, educational psychology, educational administration and other kindred subjects. These courses were scheduled for the convenience of the delegates of the National Education Association which convened in Cambridge on July 7. A new feature of the instruction in secondary education were demonstration classes at which various teaching methods were shown in actual application to high school students.
More than 100 instructors, of whom 73 were members of the University staff, had charge of the instruction.
One of the attractive features of the summer work was a series of lectures by Professor C. T. Copeland '82 on "Charles Lamb", "Sir James Barrie", "Mark Twain", "Stephen Leacock", and "Edward Fitzgerald".
