A Theory for Developing a Humanities Program for Young Children.
Brown, Marianne Gerdes
The purposes of this study were to develop a theory from a humanities program in the elementary school and to implement the theory by designing prototypes in the humanities for kindergarten through the second grade. The method used in developing the theory was library research. The humanities were limited, for purposes of the study, to include five of the arts and the intellectual development in children was investigated through developmental studies of children and other psychological literature. To demonstrate the theory as translated into problems, processes, and materials for use in the classroom, eight prototypes in the humanities were designed for the kindergarten through the second grade. Sample titles of these prototypes are "Children in Arts,""Understanding Ourselves and Other People through Poetry," and "The Theme of Love as Portrayed in Stories of Animals." Suggestions for further study are included. (Author/RB)
