The learners live in the Society and they encounter various facts. It is the function of the teacher to help the learners to bring out meanings from the heap of facts. It is a very difficult task to arrive at calculations which have reliability and validity. Probably it is the most sensitive work in the classroom to teach children to interpret facts. It is both scientific and literary also to derive meanings from social and physical facts around the children. A good teacher always helps his students to interpret things and facts scientifically and rationally. The editor gratefully acknowledges the assistance taken from various books prepared by the National Council of Educational Research and Training and various agencies of the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India who have worked in this field.
