Summer is upon us at Teachers College! The weather and summer sunlight certainly make it easy to be nostalgic for end-of -school year rites of passage and being a kid again. Here are some images featuring TC’s Lincoln School to ponder as we bask in these summer days!
The Lincoln School of Teachers College (1917-1940) was a laboratory school that became influential in setting nationwide curriculum standards. As the ultimate student-teaching opportunity for TC students, The Lincoln School was created to help develop programs to allow “for the best possible life of the child at each age level.” There is a wealth of material about it to search through in TC’s digital repository Pocket Knowledge. One recent search produced a document written in 1919 and tells of some serious playground woes caused by poor grounds conditions. There is definitely a sense of things to come as the school was still in its early stages. By digging a little deeper into Pocket Knowledge, you can find these and more charming warm weather images!
