The Preparation of Dissemination Media for Learning about Religion in Public Education. Project Final Report.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Religion - Social Studies Curriculum Project.
This is the final report of the Religion-Social Studies Curriculum Project in Florida. The committee: 1) surveyed the prospects and propriety for the academic study of religion in public education; 2) prepared and tested innovative instructional materials for the study of religion in secondary school social studies; 3) conducted two teacher education summer institutes for approximately sixty high school social studies teachers; and 4) assisted schools through publications and workshops and the State Department of Education through preparation of a Guide to Learning About Religion. Through these efforts the social studies curriculum has been required to deal more adequately with "religion," one of the humanities subject areas, and with "valuing," a humanistic activity. The Project under the provisions of the proposal produced a set of four 16mm color, sound films with accompanying study-packets on "Learning about Religion in Public Schools." Included are a list of media centers holding copies of these films for loan and of libraries holding bound copies of the study-packets. (Author/SHM)
