• Monday Feature - Yearbooks!

    Posted: Sep 19, 2016
    Did you know most of the Campus/Lab school yearbooks are available to view online?

    From the "Little Tutor" years through the "Little Panther" years and up to the final years of the school, the yearbooks that are part of the Price Lab Archives held within Rod Library have been digitized and uploaded for us to peruse. (Many thanks to those staff and volunteers at Rod Library that put in the hours to make this possible!)

    This Monday we are pleased to announce the addition of several new yearbooks to our online collection. Be sure to visit the Annuals page of our website for links to all the available yearbooks.

    You'll notice there are a few years missing. If you would happen to have, or find, an annual from any of the years listed below, please let us know. We'd love to be able to scan it in to add to our collection. 

    We are in need of annuals from: 

    1918 1919 1920 1921 1922 1924 1925 1926 1927 1928 1929 1930 1931 1932 1933 
    1934 1935 1936 1938 1939 1941 1943 1944 1945 1946 1947 1949 1951 1960


    We encourage you to take some time to explore and remember and if it brings back some great memories for you we hope you'll take just a minute or two and share those with us on the Our Memories page here at pricelabhistory.org.





  • Featured Faculty, Friends and Administration - Guy W. Wagner

    Posted: Sep 05, 2016


    In 1941, Dr. Guy Wagner became both the new Director of the Laboratory School and Head of the Department of Teaching for the Iowa State Teacher's College. He would return to serve as director of the lab school from 1960 to 1962 after the untimely passing of Dwight Curtis. 

    Of his decision to return to Iowa and his alma mater in 1941 Dr. Wagner said the following: 

    “If the preparation of teachers is as adequate today as it was when I attended here, and I am sure it is, then surely the students are receiving as fine a preparation as could be had in any institution in the country, I sense this is a teachers college where the good and usable in the traditional program is being retained, while at the same time new ideas of merit are being capitalized on.”

    Dr. Wagner did indeed set forth to create and capitalize on new ideas that would advance education at all levels, continuing his contributions long beyond his official retirement.

    Kenneth G. Butzier served as speech and drama director at Northern University High School from 1960 till his retirement in 1985. His leadership inspired both university and laboratory students who worked with him and productions during the Butzier/Hale years were always of the highest caliber, widely acclaimed, and fondly remembered.

    Project-based learning (PBL) was a cornerstone of the Laboratory School curriculum and is very well documented in journals and publications where Malcolm Price Laboratory School faculty frequently published articles related to this methodology.  Diane McCarty's fourth-grade classroom was no exception. From 1992 through 1999 Diane regularly published the results of her classroom projects in teacher journals such as K-8 Teaching.
