Tensions and Models in General Education Planning.
Newton, Robert R.
Journal of General Education, v49 n3 p165-181 2000
Asserts that general education revision committees are often unprepared for their task. Presents an analysis identifying four key issues confronting reformers--knowledge, student learning, faculty competence, and content--and describing how three models of general education (Great Books, Scholarly Discipline, and Effective Citizen) might respond to these issues. Makes suggestions for adapting these models to different types of institutions. (Contains 13 references.) (AUTH/EMH)
