STATE SUMMER SCHOOL. at Cas- Cas- ADnouneenieiit of Instructor tleton Jaly 7 to 25. The State summer school for teachers, which has been conducted for several years in Rutland county, will this year extended for one week, the session be lasting three weeks instead of two. This school is authorized by the State board of education and Is conducted under the direction of the principal of the normal school at Castleton, Charles A. Adams. It will extend from July 7 to July 25. Last year there were 70 teachers in regular attendance and the total registration registration reached almost one hundred. In previous years, the work has been more or less along the line of lectures, each teacher attending as many classes as was possible. This year it is hoped to make the work more professional and more like regular normal school work. It is planned to have double recitation periods dally, that is, there will be two recitations In each subject. Those who do satisfactory work will receive credit for the same should they plan to take a regular normal course. The faculty, as in previous years, will be composed of men and women who have had much experience in school work and are able, to deal with school problems from a thoroughly practical standpoint. The whole aim of the school will be to teach those things which can really be used in the schools. A circular, giving information information regarding the courses of study and expense of attending the school, is now ready for mailing. The instructors will be composed of members of the normal school faculty at Castleton with several teachers of experience from outside of Vermont. Among them are the following: Miss Hannah P. Waterman of the North Adams normal school will have entire charge of the rural school work. Miss Florence M. Pettee of the Castleton Castleton normal school, who will have charge of the drawing and basketry, is a graduate of Pratt Institute. Mrs. P.
