GREAT CITIES SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. THE NEED TO IMPROVE CURRICULUM.
MARBURGER, CARL; RASSCHAERT, WILLIAM M.
SEVERAL WAYS TO PLAN REALISTICALLY FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF CURRICULUM IN THE DETROIT GREAT CITIES PROJECT ARE OUTLINED--CURRICULUM COUNCILS, DEPARTMENTAL CURRICULUM COMMITTEES, SCHOOL GROUPS, TEACHERS' MEETINGS, WORKSHOPS, AND RELEASED TIME FOR CURRICULUM WORK. TECHNIQUES TO BE USED IN ANY SPECIFIC SITUATION SHOULD BE DETERMINED BY THE PRESENT CURRICULUM, THE NEEDS OF TEACHERS, THE AVAILABILITY AND COMPETENCE OF LEADERSHIP, AND THE ENDS DESIRED BY THE TOTAL GROUP. IDENTIFICATION AND STUDY OF PROBLEMS, ORGANIZED CONFERENCES AND FILMS ARE AMONG THE TECHNIQUES TO BE USED IN SPECIFIC SITUATIONS. BASIC PRINCIPLES WHICH UNDERLIE IMPROVEMENT IN CURRICULUM PLANNING ARE--PARTICIPATION SHOULD BE BY ALL PERSONS CONCERNED WITH EDUCATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE, PLANS SHOULD BE SIMPLE AND WORKABLE, ORGANIZATION SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO SPECIFIC TYPES AND SIZES OF SCHOOLS, PLANS SHOULD BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF TOTAL EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATION, AND INFORMATION SHOULD BE COMMUNICATED TO ALL THOSE CONCERNED. BARRIERS TO CURRICULUM IMPROVEMENT ARE RECOGNIZED AS INERTIA, FEAR, LACK OF TIME, MONEY AND LEADERSHIP.
