The Humanities Approach to the Modern Secondary School Curriculum.
Miller, Bernard S.
The humanities curriculum described in this book is designed as a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to learning. Chapter 1 discusses a definition of the humanities; the segmented curriculum; student expectations; teacher training and the importance of the faculty; the humanities and the sciences; organizing a humanities program; advantages of multidisciplinary teaching teams; and the core curriculum versus the humanities. Chapter 2 considers the overstuffed and representative humanities courses; the John Hays Fellows program; the central position of the fine arts; and photography, film, and television. Chapter 3 discusses teacher expectations and student achievement, and the limited ability student in the humanities curriculum. Chapter 4 discusses the "senior slump" and the senior seminar project, procedure, and evaluation. Chapter 5 deals with faculty participation, teacher reference points, and humanities and school morals. Chapter 6 includes teacher comments on the humanities and considers scheduling a humanities curriculum, meeting with the students, and the importance of the initial humanities session. Chapter 7 considers projects, seminars, and field trips. Chapter 8 concentrates on evaluation techniques. (LL)
