Description
These four licensing examinations and pamphlet were given by the Department of Education of the City of New York between 1909 and 1911 and between 1922 and 1928. Passing these examinations entitled elementary school teachers to a one-year “License No. 1.” This could be renewed for two years at the discretion of the Borough Superintendent of Schools. Teachers would then seek a higher level of licensing. The tests and pamphlet are:
1. History and Principles, January, 1909(sheet)
2. History and Principles, June, 1911(sheet)
3. Practical Tests-Drawing, June, 1911(sheet)
4. English, January, 1912(sheet)
5. Questions Asked in Examinations for License No. 1, Jan. 1922 to June 1928 (pamphlet)
The materials were the property of Brooklyn school teacher L. Leland Locke.
