Selected Exemplary Projects in the Humanities.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
As a result of an earlier project conducted by the Council of Chief State School Officer's Project on Humanities and the Schools, 76 programs in the humanities were identified for their efforts to improve the teaching of humanities between 1972 and 1983. From these projects, 20 exemplary projects were selected for inclusion in this catalog. The programs serve as examples of a variety of ways in which states can contribute to better humanities programs at different levels: elementary, middle, or secondary; urban, suburban, or rural; and/or gifted or general. Some programs concentrate on the development of one humanities discipline such as history or literature, while others pursue the links among various humanities subjects. The brief description of each project includes costs, sources of funding, personnel conducting the program, and numbers of students and faculty served. Outside support from parents, businesses, colleges, humanities councils, and community groups is also included. (LH)
