A Guide to Social Activities. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 5.
Keim, Edwin B.; Jones, Morris C., Jr.
Education certainly encompasses more than that which occurs in the classroom. Every educational experience the student has in or out of class during his formative years will help to determine what sort of adult citizen he will become. There is a possibility that this topic may excite controversy, because many people are convinced that education is mainly intellectual inquiry--fact gathering and problem solving--while many others believe that there must be more of a balance between intellectual inquiry and social experience. There is good reason to believe that this balance is once again being widely accepted by schoolmen. This guide to social activities was designed to help define what is involved in planning, administrating, and evaluating school social activities. Topics of discusseion include: (1) the facts of life and basic considerations in planning activities, (2) involvement and administration, (3) typical social activities, (4) limitations, (5) a sample community approach, and (6) evaluation of the activity.
