National Humanities Faculty Working Papers. [Three Reports on Visits to Various Schools.]
Bergmann, Frithjof; And Others
National Humanities Faculty working papers are the result of faculty members' participation in or visits to humanities projects in schools across the country. The papers included in this document are reports to those schools and to the faculty on particular visits. Further documents in this collection, SO 007 915-918, have different emphases--curriculum content, curriculum development, workshop papers, and a source list of humanities materials. In this collection on school visits, Frithjof Bergmann comments on a curriculum in an all-black inner-city high school, where relevance has become boredom and where "making it" is the major criterion for course content. Included are suggestions for usable content that puts the humanities to work. Wallace W. Douglas helps language arts teachers with their program, emphasizing basic skills and personal achievement, by suggesting the incorporation of local culture and visual sensitivities. Fred E. H. Schroeder's observations of a junior high American studies program covers the importance of methods over content, the interdisciplinary nature of teaching, and other teaching and learning concerns.
