Summary

Understanding U.S. culture is difficult, because the information explosion creates an increase in the number and complexity of various cultural relationships. American Studies is a valuable and unique discipline because it directly addresses this problem, the basic purposes of education, and the relationships that shape students' culture. This document examines the limitations of traditional schemes for organizing academic disciplines and proposes a model that focuses on relationships among disciplines through an emphasis on time. An outline of basic objectives for American Studies is presented that stresses: (1) academic disciplines; (2) personal development; (3) skill acquisition; and (4) aesthetic appreciation. Suggestions are offered for organizing American Studies units, courses, or curricula; and ideas for course content and teaching methods are presented. An example of one teaching method is illustrated, and diagrams are included. (JHP)
