This book provides an important insight into Victorian classroom pedagogy.
“Most histories of education tend to be generic, dealing with principle and theory, rarely telling you what actually happened in the classroom and studio (this is particularly the case with art education). This book does exactly that, showing what was taught, the timetable, content of the lessons, the teaching materials and how these were used and received. It also raises fundamental questions on how we approach religious education today unsupported by the old certainties of the nineteenth century.” - Dr. Richard Yeomans
