Center for High School Philosophy, 1972-1974. A Progress Report.
Bosley, Paul Shailer
This report summarizes the program and activities of the Center for High School philosophy from 1972-1974. The publication begins with a very brief description of the Center's background and major objectives. Established in 1971, the Center serves as a clearinghouse for information, ideas, contacts, and counsel on every aspect of high school philosophy; publishes a newsletter; fosters appropriate standards in the field; and promotes and/or conducts workshops and institutes. The publications's second section describes the four major activities undertaken from 1972-1974: (1) the establishment of the Center at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst; (2) the meeting of the Center's national Advisory Board; (3) the initiation of a Curriculum Development/In-service Training project with a follow-up grant from the Rockefeller Foundation; and (4) the emergence of support within the secondary schools and the philosophical profession. Results of various activities including the Follow-Up Project and the development of new centers are described in section three. Included in the appendices which comprise more than one fourth of the document are copies of the Center's Newsletter and a list of the Center's publications. (Author/RM)
