Advance Sheets, Vol. 16 free pdf Excerpt from Advance Sheets, Vol. 16: Reports on International Congresses by American Delegates (For an account of this congress see the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Education for 1906.) The recent meeting at Brussels was attended by more than 2,000 members, representing practically all the civilized countries of the world. The congress was organized by a commission selected by the Belgian Government, and the officers selected at Milan, in cooperation with international committees appointed by foreign governments. Mrs. Lucie Felix-Faure Goyau, of France, was the president of the congress, Mr. Paul De Vuyst, of Brussels, vice-president, and Mr. Louis Pien, of Brussels, secretary. Nineteen foreign governments were represented on the international commission. In addition to the general meetings of the congress, special sectional meetings were held for the discussion of particular topics. The first section concerned itself with matters touching the study of children (pedologie). Nine topics were selected as the basis of the papers and discussions of the section. The first question touched upon the general mental characteristics of children, their tendencies, and faults. II. Thiselton Mark, of the University of Manchester, England, discussed the instinctive tendencies of children, which lie on the border land between the mental and physical. He pointed out that the child's instincts are his inherited power to grapple with the world and to use its resources- that the instincts being psycho-physical organisms, all acquisition must be based upon their use, and that the school must not interrupt normal development of the instincts. Miss Theda Gildemeister, of the State Normal School at Winona, Minn., presented some of the mental traits of children to be developed in instruction in reading. Biography and autobiographical literature were recommended for their wealth of ideals and varied types of character which should be presented to children during the preadolescent period. Professor Claviere, of the Jean-Bart College, Dunkerque, France, presented an interesting genetic study on the faults of children based upon the returns of a questionnaire. Children were asked to name (1) their own chief faults and (2) the faults of their classmates. Their own faults they attribute (1) to thoughtlessness, (2) to timidity, (3) to idleness, (4) to obstinacy, and (5) to impulsiveness. It was interesting to note that 47 per cent of the boys questioned thought their faults due to thoughtlessness, while only 15 per cent of the faults in their fellows were attributed to this cause. Thirty-one per cent of the faults in colleagues were attributed to idleness, while less than 7 per cent of the boys thought idleness a cause of their own misdemeanors.
