If the study of physiography is to be made real, vital and practical, the classroom recitation should be ac- companied by some kind of well-planned laboratory work. The nature of the exercises should vary with the region in which the teacher works. Where it is possible to take classes out of doors to see the action of the various agents that are at work changing the surface of the earth, the classroom recitation is motivated in a way that cannot be secured from a mere verbal discussion. To make the study broader, the teacher should use the topographic map.
