{{ event.description }}

Nida (German: Nidden) is a town in Lithuania located on the Curonian Spit. The town was first settled by Germans in the 15th century AD and was part of Prussia before 1945. It is very popular with German tourists because the German writer Thomas Mann had a summer house here which he regularly visited in the early 1930s.

Roane County (WV) (Images of America)

Jack Nida

Established in March 1856, Roane County was named forVirginia jurist Spencer Roane. The town of New California was selected as the county seat, and in 1858, the name was changed to Spencer to further honor the judge. The courthouse built in 1859 was destroyed by fire in 1887. A new county courthouse was completed in 1889, and the railroad arrivedin Spencer in 1892. New businesses and industry flourished as Spencer became the county hub. Summer normal schools were established throughout the county to prepare young teachers for state certification. In 1914, Spencer High School graduatedone pupil in its first class. The early recognition for education expanded with the construction of one- and two-room schools within each community. Timbering began as people moved westward and established new homes and farming lands. The development of the gas and oil industry soon followed, and Roane County became a major producer by the early 1900s.

The Dawn of American History in Europe (Classic Reprint)

William Lewis Nida

Excerpt from The Dawn of American History in EuropeEight years ago the author began giving to the pupils under his supervision the benefit of a European historical background before introducing them to their texts in American History. That the wider historical horizon greatly strengthened their later grasp of the history of our own country has been both evident and gratifying.The available texts having been found unsatisfactory in many ways, the author resolved to try his hand, and had covered a part of the ground before the Report of the Committee of Eight of the American Historical Association was brought to his attention. Slight alterations in his plans have made them conform in general to the excellent recommendations of that Committee.Since no judgment of a text is as searching and final as that formed from actual use in the classroom, neither labor nor expense has been spared in making this test. The pages of the following work were first stenciled on the typewriter, and with much labor more than a hundred copies of each page were run off on the duplicator. These were collected in books with notebook covers and placed in the hands of about a hundred sixth-grade pupils in our own schools and in selected classes of neighboring Chicago suburbs. The author not only taught a class, but closely observed the use of his chapters in the hands of a number of superior history teachers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
