Excerpt from The Teacher's Miscellany, 1856: A Selection of Articles From the Proceedings of the College of Professional Teachers In presenting this volume to the public, the compilers hope and believe they are rendering an acceptable service, and one which will assist in promoting education. The College of Professional Teachers was organized in 1833, at Cincinnati, and held annual sessions until 1841. Scattered through their published proceedings are many articles of a superior character, and yet these, thus embodied, are locked up from those who would otherwise be profited by them. We hope we have made such selections from these proceedings as will render the volume useful to all who feel any interest in the true and solid advancement of our educational enterprises. Commencing with Domestic Education, it gives suggestions, in regard to the training of youth, until they have passed through a full course of instruction. The variety of topics makes it a Teacher's Miscellany, alike profitable to instructors in the primary school, the academy or the college. We have preferred to give the whole of each article, in order to do full justice to the worthy author of it. To the list of valuable books forming the Teacher's Library, we ask that this may be added, believing it to be worthy of such a place.
