Annotated Humanities Programs.
Adler, Richard R.; Applebee, Arthur
The humanities programs offered in 1968 by 227 United States secondary schools are listed alphabetically by state, including almost 100 new programs not annotated in the 1967 listing (see TE 000 224). Each annotation presents a brief description of the approach to study used in the particular humanities course (e.g., American Studies, Culture Epoch of the Western World, Great Ideas, music and art). Many also supply information concerning (1) grade levels, (2) the department administering the program, (3) methods of teaching--individual teacher, team, or a series of teachers from various departments, (4) quality of students participating, (5) credit given, (6) type of course--elective or required, part of a sequence or a single course of study, and (7)texts, materials, and specific activities--field trips, addresses by visiting lecturers, concert and drama attendance.
