The Holistic Curriculum.
Miller, John P.
Although the primary focus of this book is on curriculum and instruction, the social, psychological, and historical context of the holistic curriculum are also considered. This curriculum seeks to develop the whole individual by fostering a sense of connectedness within oneself and with others. Various connections--between logic and intuition, between mind and body, between subjects in the curriculum, between students and community--are examined, and their realization through specific examples of classroom practice is discussed. Extensive references are included. (JD)
