In the early twentieth century, Alexander Meiklejohn believed the undergraduate college must teach students how to think. He aspired to make students into thinking, caring, active citizens with the intellectual skills to participate in a democratic society. In 1927, with the founding of the Experimental College at the University of Wisconsin, he was able to test and refine his original concept for a practical liberal arts program. In the two-year course, most of the formal elements of higher education were discarded: textbooks, rigid examinations, compulsory attendance, grades for individual courses, and learning by rote of disparate ideas. His chronicle of the experiment, newly revised and edited, discusses: (1) the aim of the liberal college, intelligence and scholarship, and responsibility and books; (2) the course of study, course integration, and the unique Athens-America (civilization) Curriculum; (3) teaching methods, including the individual student's freedom, advising, and putting Meiklejohn's liberal arts principle to work; (4) suggestions, counterproposals, and new directions; and (5) an epilogue on teachers and liberal education. Appendices include notes on the beginnings of the Experimental College and assignments and reading lists for the class leaving the college in June 1932. a bibliography is included. (Mse)
