This study, primarily, aims to carry out a descriptive and a textual analysis of the Nümune-i Terakki: A children’s periodical published by Mehmet Nadir, one of the most significant ideologues of education in the Late Ottoman Empire. The periodical was published between 1887 and 1888 as a school periodical belonging to Nümune-i Terakki Mektebi, the mother of the periodical and one of the most significant Muslim private schools in the Hamidian era. On a number of aspects the Nümune-i Terakki reflects the natural and conflictual results of modernization efforts in parallel with its era. This study attempts to define, the unrevealed success of Mehmet Nadir in the field of pedagogy with the textual analysis and the biographical information of Nadir. Besides, revealing certain aspects in the periodical will guide contemporary readers in deducing the Hamidian educational reforms. Firstly the Islamic modernism idea will be discussed in the light of educational restructuring, secondly, the position of children and youth as social categories will be analyzed as a natural result of the era. Lastly, by this analysis, this study hopes to apprehend different education methodologies and moral norms that were wished to be accumulated to future generations in the context of the socio-political structure of the Hamidian era.
