Merging the Humanities. New Directions for Community Colleges, No. 12.
Koltai, Leslie, Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n12 Win 1975
Although the emphasis on occupational programs in two-year institutions may be justifiable, the humanities fields must not be totally forgotten. Since two-year college students have special needs, the teaching of the humanities can be made meaningful and appealing only by using new and creatively designed teaching methods. In this anthology of articles on the humanities in community colleges, Stanley Turesky offers a view from the perspective of a political scientist working with the National Endowment for the Humanities. William Taylor describes a model for faculty development. Bernard Luskin, David Keller, Myron Marty, Shannon Stack, Philip Nash, Robert Peterson, and Richard Janaro describe innovative humanities programs or courses in English, history, film, and interdisciplinary humanities, courses specifically designed for occupational students, and micro-college programs. Arthur Cohen and Florence Brawer analyze the preparation, inservice training, attitudes, values, and approaches in instruction of humanities faculty in community colleges. Finally, Deborah Crandall and Elizabeth Rinnander offer a bibliographic essay on community college humanities programs, supplied by the ERIC Clearinghouse for Junior Colleges. (Author/NHM)
