"What Is a Humanizing Curriculum?"
Curtis, Thomas E.
Current educational philosophies stress the need to personalize education. Emphasis must be placed on the needs and interests of individuals, and curricula must be constructed to enable students to actualize their own potentialities. The humanizing curriculum centers on the student, and the teacher helps to plan, guide, and evaluate the individual rather than to transmit selected facts. Four types of humanizing curricula are being introduced that differ primarily in their view of the centrality of man in his relations with his environment. One type emphasizes humanities instruction, while the other three conceive of man as (1) a social creature, (2) a unique individual, and (3) an introspective analyst. (Author/RA)
