The educational objectives of Project Search are discussed. Project Search is a pilot consortium of school districts across the state of New York which was initiated by the University of the State of New York. Focusing on the need for humanistic education in elementary and secondary schools, the project attempts to serve as a vehicle for integrating different subject areas into a cohesive curriculum. Emphasis is on helping students develop the means to make value commitments. The first objective of the project is the teaching of reasoning skills. These are essential for the clear consideration and assessment of values. Affective education, the project's second objective, is integral in the development of the whole person. A third objective is an interdisciplinary approach, which can be put into effect by such strategies as inviting outside speakers to the classroom and "fusing" two or more courses into an integrated unit. Values education is the fourth objective of Project Search. The values inquiry steps which the project proposes have been designed on the premise that a person is the sum of his choices. A selected bibliography follows the discussion of each of the project's objectives. This issue is part of the humanities series of the University of the State of New York. (Author/MK)
