Abc Of The Swedish System Of Educational Gymnastics
"THE author of this excellent little guide has devoted almost his whole life to the art of gymnastics and his position in Norway and in this country as a teacher in various educational institutions has fitted him to speak authoritatively upon the subject. Prof. Nissen looks upon the Swedish system of educational gymnastics as the best one and its introduction in the Boston public schools has been attended by the happiest results. The system embraces more than the perfunctory calisthenics which are so common and which are so imperfectly taught that, in many instances, physical deformities are the only results attained.
"One noteworthy feature of the hand-book before us is the fact that the exercises are graded to the capabilities of the various grades adopted in the public schools, from the youngest scholars to those who are in the highest grade of the grammar school. The exercises are copiously illustrated and a course is prescribed for each day, the length of time it should last being also indicated.
"There can be no two opinions as to the value of this guide and as a sound body is necessary for the individual to have a sound mind, simple gymnastics such as are given in this little book cannot fail in producing good effects. Moreover, it affords a useful diversion from the tedious routine of recitation work, which is so apt to produce nervous irritability in young scholars."
-Medical Review, Volume 25
"THIS book of about one hundred pages deals with the educational department of Swedish gymnastics as adopted in the public schools of Boston, where they now form part of the course.
"The author takes up the exercises in groups of a "day's order" after the usual method in the Swedish system. Taking up firstly, order for attention; secondly, leg work; thirdly, head movements; fourthly, arm movements; fifthly, balancing; and sixthly, respiratory exercises. This sequence is followed throughout, the exercises in each group becoming more difficult with the advancement of the pupil. The exercises are explained as clearly as is possible without personal instruction, and it would be a valuable book of reference to anyone who is required to teach these movements. The work given is for children ranging from the primary school up to the grammar schools."
