National Great Books Curriculum - Building Curricular Coherence

by James C. Palmer, Ph.D and Dianne C. Gardner, Ph.D.
(Editors Note: Nationally recognized figures in community college education, Professor James C. Palmer and Professoor Dianne Gardner were enlisted at the inception of the National Great Books Academic Community grant project to help its participants conduct assessment projects and to consult in the need for the Wright College Great Books Curriculum and its faculty to evolve. (The assessment work they did can be found in the First Year FIPSE report section.)


National Great Books Curriculum - First Year FIPSE Report

This survey was developed by Dr. James Palmer, a Professor of Sociology at Illinois State University.
Dr. Palmer is a nationally recognized expert on community college education, and he conducted his study with his colleague Professor Dianne Gardner, also of Illinois State University. Professors Palmer and Gardner designed the questionnaire by interviewing a cross-section of Great Books Curriculum students about what impact they believed the pedagogy had on them, and then selecting the most commonly occurring responses to constitute the questionnaire. It was conducted by Palmer and Gardner and consisted of in-depth interviews with Great Books faculty about their experience with Great Books pedagogy. Palmer and Gardners study validated the practical direct value of the Great Books Curriculum for minority students, as well as its long-term indirect value. The Great Books Project staff is also excited by the opportunities for increasing the impact of Great Books pedagogy that has emerged as a result of Professor Palmer and Professor Gardners findings as well as that of the CAAP test. In the former case, Palmer and Gardner made an important and entirely unexpected discovery. First, the CAAP tests, as well as the survey Professors Palmer and Professor Gardner conducted, have shown that student learning and skills increase whether or not students are aware they are in a Great Books Curriculum class. As Dr. Barshis expressed it to the FIPSE project staff, Palmer and Gardners findings show the value of Great Books pedagogy in achieving the objectives of the grant. Plans under way to achieve this goal include a meeting of the Great Books Curriculum faculty with Professor Palmer to discuss these results, explore possible reasons for the lack of student awareness, and consider ways in which more effective communication and reinforcement can be developed. Plans are also under way to distribute a packet of materials to students during the first day of Great Books classes, along with instructions on the importance of reviewing them in class. Professor Palmer has also made several valuable recommendations for the improvement of teaching and learning that will be enthusiastically taken up in a series of Great Books faculty meetings in the upcoming semester. In addition, the survey devised by Professors Palmer and Gardner for purposes of self-study, as well as the methodology for the faculty survey, will be made readily available to partner institutions. Professor James Palmer and Professor Dianne Gardner
