A Collegiate Underclassman Curriculum for the Behavioral/Social Sciences Employing a Problem-Solving Approach. Final Report.
Norton, Nile B.
This report describes a program designed to promote relevance in the lower division curriculum at Our Lady of the Lake College in San Antonio, Texas. It was decided that the best means to be used is a multidisciplinary course that utilizes the method of problemsolving as the basis. Therefore, a course combining the social and behavioral sciences was created. Results show varied opinions as to the feasibility of the experimental program. It is pointed out that it is difficult to truly assess such a program when 80% of the students' curricula remained traditional. However, it is felt that the problemsolving emphasis focusing on community projects has unlimited capabilities for embarking students on programs of study to accept urban planning and management positions.
