[Report on the Summer Institute on the Teaching of Humanities at Miles College in 1969.]
Havice, Doris W.
The director's report on the Summer Institute on the Teaching of the Humanities held at Miles Colleges in 1969 is presented. The Institute's objectives were to: (1) present to teachers of the humanities, particularly in the 8 predominantly Negro colleges in Alabama, the importance and the content of black humanities as they have developed to the present and to promote changes in the curricula in black colleges to meet student demands for a more relevant program of studies; (2) change attitudes of teachers toward the black humanities; and (3) stimulate the teachers' creativity in the various arts. Forty college and high school teachers and college students participated in the program. The Institute was judged most successful in promoting attitude changes. Also included are reports from the workshops on curriculum, dance, and music, and a position paper from the teachers in the program. (Author/CS)
