A Common Wealth: Views in Massachusetts Humanities Education.
Manuel, J. Jack, Ed.
Descriptions of ways in which educators are humanizing the educative process comprise this collection of articles by Humanities teachers in Massachusetts. The Process of Humanizing discusses the Quincy Method after 25 years of progress, why contemporary man must learn to humanize the product of education, and how a popular song can show ways to develop an understanding of the human condition. The development of aesthetic rationales for humanities programs is dealt with in the second section and technology and humanities education is the subject of the third section. Four humanities programs are described, 2 at the elementary level, one for high school, and one for college. The effects of film, television, and the media and their use as subject matter compose the final section of the book. (RS)
