A Sociology of Impoverished Life Styles. Heuristics of Adult Education: Courses of Study for Professional Preparation of Educators of Adults.
Arkava, Morton L.
A course focusing on the socially impoverished is presented. Its goals are: (1) to help the student develop an understanding of the impoverished in terms of current sociological theories and to relate theory to problem solutions, (2) to help the student develop an affective appreciation of impoverishment, and (3) to help the student to develop specific strategies directed at the reduction of the impact of impoverishment on people. The content of the syllabus is based on the assumption that all societies appear to develop one or more classes of disadvantaged persons whose life styles are such that their participation in the entire range of activities of the society are severely limited. The syllabus is directed at a detailed examination of the life styles developed by the impoverished--the poor--and the culturally deprived. (For related documents, see AC 008 317-320, 322.) (CK)
