Educational Foundations and Curriculum

Publication Date



Dr. Paul R. Hanna, Professor of Education at Stanford University, was a visiting lecturer at Central Washington College last spring. One of the questions that arose at most of his lecture-discussions was the one asking what the schools could or should do about teaching world affairs to students. What types of materials are best? Is the special teacher in social studies better than the integrated approach? Do we need to completely revise our curriculum in face of the atomic one-world? What are other schools doing to meet the challenge in this second race of "education versus catastrophe?" These are important questions, and the answers are not now at hand.
