1968 Conference Highlights (Third NCTE National Conference on the Humanities, Chicago, Ill., May 5-7, 1968).
Dyer, Prudence, Ed.
This report of the National Conference on the Humanities includes summaries, with excerpts, of four major addresses--(1) "What the Humanities Programs in Schools Ought to Be" by Harry S. Broudy, (2) "Problems and Advantages of the Culture-Epoch Approach to the Humanities" by John R. Dahl, (3) "Humanities: A Great Ideas Course" by Morris Saxe, and (4) "The New Humanities and the Twenty-First Century" by Robert Saudek. In addition, discussion group reports consider existing programs, necessary criteria for humanities programs, the assessment of popular types of humanities courses, a design for a good humanities program, and projected ideas for the participants' own schools. Finally, conference chairman Jerry Walker poses a series of unanswered questions as to what humanities programs might become. (DL)
