Introduction to Humanities: A Framework for Teachers and Students.
Barone, Frank J.; Austin, Diane M.
The framework for a course in the study of man in his relationships with society, with nature, and within himself is presented. In this nongraded, student-directed course, the areas of investigation includ philosophy, art, music, history, literature, science, and architecture. Each student should produce at least one individual contribution and one group contribution each quarter. They will be evaluated on their ability to produce something creative for the course. Projects may include original poetry, student-made films, collage, musical composition, sculpture, painting, dramatic productions, or architectural models. The goal of the course is, through an expanded knowledge of man, to bring about a change of attitude and behavior in the students, which will result in their growth and maturity. Resource materials are listed. (DB)
