Scrapbook of Undergraduate Literacies.
This scrapbook resulted from a search for possible consensus on the outcomes of undergraduate education. The scrapbook contains quotations from various sources related to undergraduate education and serves as a resource that reviews some of the literature. It begins with later 20th century expectations of corporate and governmental bodies in Europe and the United States. Next are lists of expectations from academic individuals and institutions, mostly from the last century. A review of the lists of currently expected literacies makes it apparent that instrumental skills dominate. To illustrate the contrast between todays interest in instrumental skills and earlier contemplative and humanistic goals, a few of the premodern views and perspectives are included. (Author/SLD)
