A Curriculum for Liberal Culture Studies 2011
This is my draft curriculum to teach students about liberal culture, how liberal ideas came to be, and how they benefit society. Obviously it is not a program that can be implemented in all schools around the world. At this stage, the curriculum is mainly aimed at assisting liberal families in introducing liberal ideas to their children.
Obviously, what students study cannot be in a vacuum. It is my expectation that this curriculum will only work where there is an active liberal culture surrounding the student in their everyday lives. For example, their families who talk about things using a liberal worldview, and popular culture figures who work for liberal causes.
This curriculum is divided into two sections – Core Liberal Studies and Integrating Liberal Studies into Other Studies. The former is about teaching actual liberal ideas and the latter is about integrating liberal ideas with their other education.
