The writer had heard a lot about Miss Beam’s School for Sympathy.One day he got the chance to visit it. He saw a twelve year old girl. Her eyeswere covered with a bandage. An eight-year boy was leading her carefully between the flower-beds.
After that the author met Miss Beam. She was a middle-aged, kindlyand understanding lady. He asked her questions about her way of teaching.She told him that the teaching methods in her school were very simple. Thestudents were taught spelling, arithmetic and writing. The author told MissBeam that he had heard a lot about theoriginalityof her teaching method.Miss Beam told him that the real aim of her school was to make the studentsthoughtful. She wanted to make them helpful and sympathetic citizens. Sheadded that parents sent their children to her school gladly. She then askedthe writer to look out of the window.
