Humanities and the Social Studies.
Powell, Thomas F., Ed.
Writers representing diverse backgrounds and professional interests have contributed essays to this collection on the relationship between these two disciplines. Contributors were asked to sketch areas in the humanities which might be used in the social studies, and to discuss how the ideas, attitudes, philosophies, and information might be utilized. In addition, curriculum development and planning and teacher training are covered. Some of the topics included are the youth value crisis, social and moral values, behavioral sciences, individual development, understanding through language development, humanism, human relations, cross cultural study, law and social order, and the creative development and expressions of man.
