Learning Through Student Activities. New Directions: New Dimensions Series.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Office of Curriculum Development.
The offerings in this publication reflect a new movement toward conceptualizing the student activities program as a valid source of learning that transpires informally within the total school situation. The experiences reported herein provide evidence that the learnings to be acquired through student activities should no longer be considered supplemental to the formal program of studies, but should rather be viewed as complementary and essential to the full implementation of the goals of the school. Sixteen activity-oriented programs launched by enterprising teachers, students, and/or administrators are described that demonstrate a new commitment to the importance of involving teachers and students in the decisionmaking process.
