The following disciplines are treated in separate chapters which comprise the major portion of the document: visual and tactile arts; body education; music; drama and language arts; social sciences; foreign languages; mathematics; science; industrial arts; household arts; philosophy; and religion. The standard format of most chapters includes a brief, general introduction, recommendations for teaching the discipline (including goals for teachers and students), a description of class activities which teachers are presently using throughout the state, and suggestions for interdisciplinary topics such as conflict, survival, and the changing roles of women. Ways in which the subject area can be taught in the various disciplines, student goals, and lists of pertinent curriculum materials are provided for each topic. A form designed to assist educators to review the framework is included. The appendices contain a glossary and the Proposal for the Establishment of the California Academy for Teaching in the Humanities. (Author/RM)
