Toward Humanistic Education: A Curriculum of Affect.
Weinstein, Gerald, Ed.; Fantini, Mario D., Ed.
Professionals as well as parents will find here an argument and model for implementing humanistic education in public schools at all levels. Steming from the Elementary School Teaching Project by the Ford Foundation which found that the student's feelings influence his ability to learn, this book attempts to develop a model which will utilize the student's affective concerns to motivate him to learning in a cognitive way. The model directs the reader's attention first to the workings of attitudes and values and then to practical instructional procedures which aid the teacher in diagnosing the student's interest and in teaching traditional materials on such a basis. A concluding section anticipates some arguments which might be made against humanistic education and attempts to answer the arguments. (CWB)
