PLANNING AND CREATION OF AN INTEGRATED TWO-YEAR LIBERAL ARTS CURRICULUM IN WORLD CIVILIZATIONS FOR UNIVERSITY FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES. FINAL REPORT.
KNOBLOCK, JOHN H.
IN ORDER TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR LIVING IN AN INTERNATIONAL, PLURALISTIC WORLD, THE INTERCULTURAL STUDIES PROJECT DEVELOPED A CURRICULUM FOR FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES WHICH COMBINES TWO DISCIPLINES, THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, AND TWO LARGE SUBJECT AREAS, WESTERN AND EASTERN AND SOUTH ASIAN CIVILIZATIONS. TWO OTHER OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT ARE TO TRAIN A FACULTY FOR THIS CURRICULUM AND TO DEVELOP A LIBRARY OF VISUAL MATERIALS ON NON-WESTERN CULTURES. CHAPTERS ON PROBLEMS, RELATED RESEARCH, PROCEDURES, AND CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS ARE INCLUDED. THE MAJOR PORTION OF THE REPORT CONSISTS OF AN ANALYSIS OF DATA AND FINDINGS WHICH INDICATE THAT THE COURSE IS A SUCCESS. EXTENSIVE TABLES PROVIDE LECTURE TOPICS, READING ASSIGNMENTS, AND TEXTS FOR THE COURSE. ALSO INCLUDED ARE A SUMMARY AND APPENDIXES LISTING THE COMMENTS OF VISITING LECTURERS AND CONSULTANTS, THE LETTER OF INVITATION TO FRESHMAN STUDENTS, AND A DETAILED OUTLINE OF THE FIRST SEMESTER UNIT, EMERGENCE OF CIVILIZATION.
