The Person and the Planet: A Problems Course. A Curriculum Guide. Revised Edition.
Growth occurs when the need for change is recognized by the individual through self-analysis, and when measures to effect the change are self-initiated. In this course the student is actively involved at every step in self-evaluation, identifying problem areas in her or his relationships and environment, selecting topics and issues for research, formulating the questions she or he wishes to answer, and discovering appropriate sources of information. Reliance is placed on teacher-pupil planning, guided discussion, and informal presentation of material. Lectures and instructive diagrams are employed in subject areas not readily available, such as methods of encouraging creative, intuitive thinking and achieving a planetary perspective. Aid in effecting desired changes in feelings and behavior is provided in guided awareness exercises and imaging. Included is a reading list of books that inspire and stimulate growth. (BZ)
