National Humanities Faculty Working Papers.[Six Papers Concerned with Development of Humanities Curricula.]
Hanley, Janet; And Others
The National Humanities Faculty working papers collected in this document consider the process of curriculum development and approaches in curriculum presentation. Janet Hanley's "Success or Failure in Curriculum Development: Six Ways to Know" provides a set of review questions for curriculum developers to help insure a successful course. A. D. Van Nostrand's description of the "portable module" includes the mechanics for an idea to enrich an ongoing course. Hyman Kavett emphasizes the importance of teachers' enthusiasm, willingness to make bold decisions, and ability to cooperate with other teaching colleagues in curriculum development. Frithjof Bergmann's report on a visit to the Berea Community School in Kentucky justifies a program emphasizing respect for the individual student's development and initiative. David Tyack's paper "Ask Yourself About the Humanities," is a set of questions for private pondering and public discussion in the preparation of a humanities curriculum. John Ratte's report of several days of brainstorming on the development of a humanities curriculum to examine values, culture, and their interrelationship reveals the nature of the development process.
