The purpose of this study is to determine to what extent the teacher’ manual, The Methodist Teacher V-VI, Fall, Winter, and Spring 1964-65, published by the Graded Press, Nashville, Tennessee, succeeds in providing insights for church school teachers in understanding the developmental patterns of the late elementary years in order to encourage and guide the child intelligently in his Christian growth.
