Abstract (summary)

The problem of the study was to initiate a fifth grade humanities program utilizing the Kodaly music philosophy and open classroom concept within the limitiations of the Emerson School educational structure.

The art and music of the American Indian and the Negro were approached in two separate units, and were presented as products of their related life-styles.

Throughout the unit on the American Indian students were encouraged to produce individual projects leading to the fulfillment of one class goal. The quality of this class project was then dependent on the quality of the individual projects. The goal for each class was the production of a filmstrip of an Indian story.

The unit on Negro culture was approached through individual and group projects independent of each other, but generally related to a central theme. Through this approach, a variety of ideas were explored, children could proceed at their own rate and whole classes were not held back waiting for last minute projects to be completed.
