Training School 2nd Grade, 1st Floor - Room 31
This image depicts a Second grade Training School class which was taught by Maude Ball, who is likely the woman standing near the piano at the front of the room. The director of the Training School, Austin George, can also be seen in this image standing next to the door. Second graders had a similar curriculum to First graders, and was the last grade to have a “Home Knowledge, etc.” section. “Home Knowledge” introduced students to a variety of subjects that would be explored in greater depth in future grades.
