National Humanities Faculty Working Papers. [Papers Describing the Content of Humanities Programs.]
Cawelti, John; And Others
The National Humanities Faculty working papers in this document represent reports of faculty participation in humanities projects around the country and emphasize program content that might be useful to teachers developing their own humanities programs. Arleigh D. Richardson's report is a description of the program he visited and is written by the teachers who developed it. The program, geared for the average student, stresses the interrelated and values content of the humanities. The result of John Cawelti's visit to a black, inner-city school is a detailed model for an 11th grade course, "Who We Are," that would involve the whole student. Roland B. Kimball, after visiting a Connecticut high school, suggests an outline and activities for a 9th grade humanities program that centers on the life of the students' community. John Anthony Scott's report on the theme and content of an American studies course is a specific program with a human and historical orientation to be implemented by integrating literature with historical topics. John Cawelti contributes another paper: his thoughts on the construction of an integrated curriculum that would develop the basic analytic and interpretive skills of the social studies, science, and the humanities, independently, and then set up problems requiring the interworking of the different skills.
