Minicourses: Developments in Classroom Instruction.
Heitzmann, William Ray
This monograph offers a realistic discussion of the minicourse movement, as well as practical step-by-step guidance for teachers in the planning and implementation of minicourse curricula. Two minicourse models are presented (America's Maritime Heritage and Sports Literature), which include complete teacher resource lists and detailed instructions for setting up the minicourses. The author shows teachers how to develop course objectives, organize students in various groupings, allocate time and space, balance observation and study activities, and evaluate the effectiveness of the course. He also shows how minicourses can be developed for interdisciplinary studies, discusses the use of print and nonprint media, provides a selected bibliography of readings on minicourses, and presents lists of minicourses offered by schools in various parts of the United States.
