Evaluation of the National Endowment for the Humanities Sponsored Course: "The Idea of Woman."
Cless, Elizabeth L.
This document presents background, project activities, and results of a course initiated at the Claremont Colleges entitled "The Idea of Woman." The course was loosely constructed and was designed to be a learning experience for faculty as well as students. The class met in an informal seminar room for 2 hours once a week for a semester. During the first half of the semester, faculty members lectured on the topic of women, and the second half of the semester was devoted to student reports on special projects and studies. In an evaluation of the course it was decided that the course lacked determined objectives and tried to take into account too much material for the prescribed time. In addition, it was felt that men should be enrolled in the course to encourage a diversity of student perspectives, and that a wide age differential in participants would be advantageous. Finally it appears that the course should confine itself to a discussion method of teaching, and that reading and discussion materials should be well integrated. (HS)
