Notes and abstracts: 

These three reports relate MacInnes’s teaching experience of the Technique at Weymouth College. He had trained with F. M. Alexander 1931-34 with the purpose of teaching the Technique in schools. The experimental project was to investigate to what extent the Technique could be introduced into the life and work of a school. MacInnes mostly gave private lessons, starting with the Junior School, ages 8½ to 10. His account covers the structure and development of the project, and the progress pupils made, including individual case histories. He sums up his experiences (conditions) for making the Technique part of school education.
