Curriculum Innovation in the Fields of History, Science, Music, and Art Within a Single Institute; And Curriculum Innovation, 1966-1967. Final Report.
Strobridge, Robert; And Others
At Webster College, St. Louis, Missouri, the objective of the Webster Institute of Mathematics, Science, and the Arts (WIMSA) is to create curriculum materials for the lower schools in the fields of science, history, and music, and, concurrently, to devise a mode of teacher preparation aimed at producing teachers capable of handling such materials. In the curriculum materials for art and music, an attempt was made to clarify the relationship between physical objects and art form and music, to add to their appreciation. In science, new techniques were devised in developing genetic models and in the presentation of general subject matter by using the common household fly. The final report, in history, dwelt on better success in the presentation of history from an interpretive approach as opposed to the traditional chronicle presentation. This document also includes WIMSA newsletters, a final report on project expenditures, and a summary on some followup studies that were made after the project funding ended.
