ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Children's interest in the war and the curriculum," by Julia Wade Abbot, which appeared in the March 1943 issue of "Progressive Education". In this article, the author discusses the integration of children's interest in all aspects of the war on the curriculum. In order that these vivid experiences may be constructive in outcome, certain curriculum objectives must be kept in mind. Much of the interest of children is naturally in the dramatic and spectacular aspects of the war. Teachers need to balance the spectacular and unusual with constructive types of curriculum activities. It is the responsibility of teachers to find ways in which more constructive attitudes may be developed gradually without trying to impose ethical concepts which are beyond the children's comprehension.
