Summary

The purpose of this guide is to encourage the development of humanities programs at the high school level so that students, through acquaintance with the thoughts, creations, and actions of past and present men in every area of knowledge, will think about the values of freedom and responsibility in relation to themselves. Not intended as a course of study, the guide is a compilation of ideas, objectives, and suggested teaching approaches and student activities. Three especially detailed approaches to the humanities program are presented: (1) the Functions Approach, concerned with man's values and expression in relation to himself and to society; (2) the Elements Approach, concerned with the form, reality, meaning, and purpose of the aesthetic experience; and (3) the Chronological Approach, focused of man's interest in himself, religion, nature, play, and the community. Also included are recommendations for program construction, an outline of Western man's history, and lists of humanities materials and non-Western works that could be included in a humanities program.
