OUR ANCESTORS IN EUROPE
OUR ANCESTORS IN EUROPE :: American History :: 1916 HB
OUR ANCESTORS
IN EUROPE
AN INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN HISTORY
  • Hardback book by JENNIE HALL, Francis W. Parker School, Chicago
  • Edited by J. Montgomery Gambrill and Lida Lee Tall
  • Over 425 pages
  • COPYRIGHT, 1916, BY SILVER, BURDETT AND COMPANY

According to the INTRODUCTION:

" IT is still generally admitted that the most important history
for every child is that of his own country, but happily the old narrow
conception of the American story as a thing apart from the rest of the world
seems to be rapidly passing.
The roots of American civilization are in Europe.
Our beginnings and early development form a part of one of the most far-reaching
changes of history: the expansion of Europe beyond the ancient limits of the
Mediterranean world, the discovery of the American continents, the opening of
direct sea routes to India and the far East, the commercial revolution,
the first stages of the Europeanization of the world.
Only in the larger setting can the history of the United States become really intelligible.
If we are to understand our own country and how it came to be what it is,
we must know something of our ancestors in Europe and of the heritage we have
received from them. "

According TO TEACHERS:

" " HAVE we always been what we are ? "
" Why are we so like Europeans and unlike Chinamen ? "
" Men and animals grow; does civilization grow ? "
" Before America what was there ? "
Thoughtful children ask themselves such questions.
Less thoughtful ones ought to be led to ask them.
The inquiring attitude of mind, the question formed on the lips or in the brain,
are the necessary preludes to right study.
The moment such a question is voiced is the psychological moment for opening this book.
As children continue to read, this initial question should pass through Protean changes
and should become at every stage more definite.
" What have we learned from the Greeks ? "
" How did men learn more about the earth than they knew at first ? " "

" Under purposeful teachings, teaching that trains intelligence
rather than crams with facts, such questions will be continually forming. "
