Head, Heart, Hands and Health: "Experience and Education" by Dewey's Criteria?
Enfield, Richard P.
This paper explores how the 4-H youth development program is based on and conducted in a manner consistent with the philosophy of experiential education and Dewey's (1938) principles of interaction and continuity. The paper presents the history of 4-H relevant to an exploration of Dewey's influence on the program, asserting that it is within the context of the 4-H club, and especially within the 4-H project group, that the components of experiential education and Dewey's principles of interaction and continuity are played out. The paper then discusses the components of experiential education and the principles of interaction and continuity in relation to segments of the 4-H program. Finally, the paper presents ideas for strengthening the links between the 4-H program and concepts of experiential education and Dewey's ideas of an "experience." (Contains 25 references.)
