ABSTRACT
This article comments on the column What Schools Are Doing in Providing Learning Activities, published in the April 1959 issue. The author of this column presented twelve classified lists of learning activities. The author, searching through many curriculum guides to discover the activities for inclusion in the list, found the wide variety described to be most revealing. When these activities were wisely put into classroom practice, the school days must have been good ones. It seems obvious that successful teachers must be familiar with a wide range of such activities even though each teacher is likely to have his favorites and make capital of them.
