American Culture: What? Why? How?
Haller, Elizabeth S.
The General Curriculum Regulations of 1969 (effective July 1, 1969) state that there shall be four required units in Social Studies, two of which shall be designated as American or United States Culture, taught as interdisciplinary studies with concepts taken from the various social sciences. Since this section of the regulations has raised a number of questions, this pamphlet attempts to clarify by answering the following: 1) What is meant by American Culture? 2) How may the American Culture courses be made interdisciplinary? 3) Are there suggested ways of organizing American Culture courses? and, 4) What changes in the typical course sequence are indicated by the new regulations?
