Yale--New Haven History Education Project (H.E.P.). Summary Report 1970-1973. [And] Guide For Mini-Course Teachers.
Seretny, Albert A.
The Yale-New Haven History Education Project began in Spring 1970 with the expressed goal of improving the quality and relevance of secondary school history courses in New Haven's public schools. Thirty Yale history professors worked with a comparable number of high school teachers and created approximately eighty "mini-courses" in United States History, replacing the required survey course. The summary report of the project lists the participants of the New Haven School System, ale History Department and other Yale faculty and outside visitors, the rationale for the project, the responsibilities for the teachers, coordinators and professors and an analysis of what the future will hold based on reactions to the project thus far. Appendices list the titles of the mini-courses offered at the three participating high schools. The teacher's guide, after repeating the staff responsibilities, introduces the inquiry approach and steps to developing a mini-course. A categorized list of skills and a skill and concept sequence are suggested. The specific techniques and activities of panel discussions or debates, mock trials, field trips, student taught classes and sound light shows are outlined. Appendices contain a teacher curriculum and a Yale seminar questionnaire. (Author/KSM)
