Humanities III: The Future of Man.
Stanton School District, Wilmington, DE.; John Dickinson High School, Wilmington, DE.
This humanities syllabus, the last in a series of three sequential programs, is intended for 12th grade students. Rationale, objectives, guidelines, methods, and arrangement are given in SO 004 030. Some of the major objectives of the course are to: (1) create an understanding of the nature of communication and its impact on human activity; 2) explore some problem solving techniques and philosophies and their possible impact on human direction; 3) show the relationships which determine formation of values with a view toward value planning for the future; 4) discover major technological, social, political, economic, and aesthetic problems that man must successfully contend with in order to survive; and 5) reveal that the positive approach to a problem is dealing with it squarely. Focus in Humanities III is upon students pondering the quality of life and ways that will make life better, and moreover, on presupposing a more humanistic future world. Related documents are SO 004 030 and SO 001 713. (Author/SJM)
