Graduate student faculty mentors should incorporate more opportunities for their students to glean research experience described here.

Certain expectations are outlined for a young professional with a recently earned doctoral degree. I believe that this is a psychological necessity, because it is the only way of securing continuity in the child’s growth, the only way of giving a background of past experience to the new ideas given in school.

It should be introduced, not as so much new subject- matter, but as showing the factors already involved in previous experience and as furnishing tools by which that experience can be more easily and effectively regulated. Dewey sees that we must use individuality for the greater good.

When it comes to assessment, Dewey states that grading should be relevant to the child’s own progress.

They must be translated into terms of their social equivalents – into terms of what they are capable of in the way of social service. Personal background is psychological and gives way to new ideas. Dewey recognizes that teaching is noble and selfless.

I believe that the school must represent present life – life as real and vital to the child as that which he carries on in the home, in the neighborhood, or on the play-ground.


I believe that only through the continual and sympathetic observation of childhood’s interests can the adult enter into the child’s life and see what it is ready for, and upon what material it could work most readily and fruitfully.

With the advent of democracy and modern industrial conditions, it is impossible to foretell definitely just what civilization will be twenty years from now.
