Review and Proceedings of the Community College Humanities Association, n3 Feb 1982
Designed as a forum for views on issues concerning the humanities in two-year colleges, this journal begins with "A Call for Common Learning," in which Ernest Boyer discusses the goals of education and outlines six themes which students should study to understand themselves, their society, and the world in which they live. Responding to Boyer, Donald Billiar, in "Educating Minds and Hands," calls for the rejection of a curriculum which perpetuates the split between academic and occupational education or which narrowly defines curriculum subjects and content; and Jeffrey Lukenbill outlines "General Education at Miami-Dade Community College." In "Business Education, the Liberal Arts, and the Community College," Norman E. Bowie discusses the role of ethics in business education. Next, in "Rethinking Everything," Myron Marty calls for a reexamination of the humanities, its curriculum, teaching styles, student-teacher relations, and teacher relations with their discipline. James Perry presents a philosophical analysis of the importance and functions of humanities courses in the curriculum. Next, Breneman and Nelson's "Financing Community Colleges: An Economic Perspective" is reviewed by Leslie Koltai, and Charles Moran reviews four writing texts. Finally, Margaret Williams presents "Recent Curricular Developments in the Humanities: Achievements of the National Humanities Faculty Two-Year College Program." The journal includes proceedings of Community College Humanities Association meetings. (HB)
