Adventuring, Mastering, Associating: New Strategies for Teaching Children.
All children have a right to learn what is most worth learning, but for some children this right has often not been realized. An important need is to define the elements of an "equal rights curriculum" that meets the needs of all children. One of the important elements of such a curriculum is "adventuring." Through more extensive and intensive interaction with various environments and cultural realms, adventuring broadens children's base for learning and enlivens the whole educational process. "Mastering" is another element of the equal rights curriculum. All children, including those who have been traditionally undertaught, must succeed in mastering the educational fundamentals and much more as well. "Associating" is the final important curricular element. Children who may have been mistaught about racial-ethnic, gender, and class differences need the correction that comes from interacting with all kinds of children and from studying the social aspects of human behavior. This proposed curriculum is meant to help those children who have been traditionally undertaught, but it should also benefit children who have been overtaught, as well. (Author/JG)
