Project Search Progress Report, 1972-73.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Humanities and Arts.
This report on the status of SEARCH provides information about its beginnings, funding considerations, case studies of project success, evaluation methods, and application and testing of SEARCH in a number of school districts throughout the state of New York. Project SEARCH is geared to humanizing education by making students aware of the values that underlie their own acts and the acts of others and the consequences of holding those values. The aim of SEARCH is to develop ways to teach children, K-12, to make choices on the basis of reason, emotion, and research. Major objectives are to help students develop reasoning skills; recognize feelings and emotions, with an implication of their importance in determining thought and conduct; examine issues from different disciplinary approaches; and know and apply the steps on the valuing process. The underlying philosophy of SEARCH is that the integration of the arts and the humanities with science and technology is a powerful educational tool. (Author/JR)
