DEVELOPMENT OF A PILOT PROGRAM IN THE HUMANITIES FOR NON-COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS IN THE 12TH GRADE.
RAGLE, JOHN W.
THE DEVELOPMENT AND INITIATION OF A COURSE IN HUMANITIES FOR TERMINAL 12TH-GRADE STUDENTS WERE REPORTED. THE TWO GOALS OF THE PROGRAM WERE (1) TO PROVIDE THESE TERMINAL STUDENTS A COURSE INCORPORATING THE AREAS OF HISTORY, LITERATURE, LANGUAGE ARTS, MUSIC, AND ART TO STIMULATE ENTHUSIASM AND INSIGHT NOT COMMONLY EXPERIENCED BY SUCH STUDENTS AND (2) TO ELIMINATE THE SENSE OF REDUNDANCY COMMONLY FELT BY STUDENTS UPON ENTERING TRADITIONAL 12TH GRADE CLASSES IN ENGLISH AND SOCIAL STUDIES. AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE WAS ESTABLISHED TO STRUCTURE THE COURSE AND INCLUDE SUCH MATERIALS AS FILMS, RECORDINGS, TAPES, AND SLIDES. CONSULTANTS WERE INVITED TO REVIEW AND DISCUSS THE PROJECT. A PILOT GROUP OF 48 TERMINAL SENIORS WAS CHOSEN AS THE SAMPLE. TEAM TEACHING WAS EMPLOYED IN THE COURSE INSTRUCTION. CLASS ACTIVITY INCLUDED ENRICHMENT SESSIONS IN MUSIC LISTENING, ART WORK, HISTORY, LITERATURE, ENGLISH LANGUAGE, AND INDIVIDUAL STUDY. EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDED COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS, INDIVIDUAL EVALUATIONS, AND OBSERVATION PROCEDURES. RESULTS WERE PRESENTED ON (1) STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT COMPARED TO THEIR PAST RECORDS, (2) STUDENT EVALUATIONS OF THE PROGRAM, AND (3) SUMMARY-ANALYSIS BY THE CONSULTANTS. GENERALLY THE PROGRAM WAS FOUND TO HAVE FULFILLED ITS OBJECTIVES. (RS)
