One of a series of quinmester programs, this course is designed to introduce the student to significant literature that illustrates the gulf between the vision of a perfect society and the realities of human nature. Course content consists of the characteristics of a Utopian society, a definition of Utopia, attitudes toward Utopia, the relation of Utopia to society, and the student's evaluation of Utopia. Teaching strategies include individual project work, writing assignments, lectures, and the use of resource personnel. Through the study of Utopian societies students will gain skills in reading, writing, speaking, character study and evaluation. A resource list for students and teachers includes textbooks, paperback books, and films. (RS)
