A New Revisionist Scholarship: The Development of Women's Studies in the United States.
Wetzel, Jodi
This paper examines the historical development of Women's Studies as an academic discipline. Principles of this education include a feminist perspective and an interdisciplinary approach. Students assume the responsibility for their own learning. Varied resource people are used in the classroom. The object of this feminist model is to define the role of the instructor as resource person and synthesizer of materials. The feminist model encourages cooperation among members of a learning community, values clarification, an interdependent and collective learning experience, and integration of experiential learning with theoretical learning. Methods for attaining these goals are discussed, as well as grading and research. (MA)
