General Education Science for Citizens of an Open Society.
Weinshank, D.
The author attempts to delineate the three critical parameters which he feels must be considered in examining the role of general education science in an open society--students, instructors, and an holistic curricula. One other element considered to be of particular importance to such a teaching experience was style. The author briefly considers each of the parameters. Students are evaluated in terms of prior education, prior experience, ethnicity, and cognitive skills. The instructor is described in terms of three roles: evaluational, relational, and synthetic. A model for general education science curricula is presented using three orthogonal concerns: subjects, themes, and alternatives - with emphasis on the fact that one must move through all three dimensions of this model, not just one or two. Some of the possible organizing themes are briefly examined. These include: epistemology, methodology, history, philosophy, sociology, technology, esthetics, and ethics. (EB)
