Abstract: Among the outstanding current directions in American education are the following: from indoctrination to open-minded judgment, from isolatad subject matter to an integrated curriculum, from book focus to pupil focus, from academic goals to life goals, from standardization to differentiation, from memorization to thinking, from external restraint to intelligent self-direction, from teacher purpose to guided pupil purpose, from a single text to source material, from assignments to plans, from listening to doing, from competition to social reciprocity, from passive receptivity to active exploration, from subjects to areas, from subject matter emphasis to trait emphasis, and from assignment-study-recitation to exploration.1
