Historical Sensitivity.
Humphreys, Lester Jay
This document is a diagnostic test and workbook for high school and college students who are developing a sense of history using a seven-stage developmental schema. It is part of SO 008 711 and should only be used in conjunction with it to fully understand its components. The objectives and explanation for the workbook will be found in SO 008 711. The schema is used in a performance contract system and includes: (1) articulation of expectations, (2) resource lists on the skills and content to be covered, (3) sample contracts so that students are fully aware of expectations, (4) blank copies of contract forms to help students organize their work, (5) negotiation of the contract on the basis of diagnostic tools, (6) implementation and possible renegotiation of contract, and (7) evaluation. This workbook helps the teacher to know where the students are in their understanding of history. The workbook evaluates 36 performance objectives based on a humanistic approach to teaching history, including such objectives as ability to memorize, knowledge of research methods, ability to use a library, ability to handle a large mass of data, ability to use primary sources, ability to make judgments, and understanding of a philosophy of learning. The format includes a series of questions which may be answered or used for further thinking. (Author/JR)
