CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION IN ENGLISH AND SOCIAL STUDIES (A REPORT ON RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCES FOR PERSONNEL OF USOF CURRICULUM STUDY CENTERS IN ENGLISH AND SOCIAL STUDIES MAY 8-9, 1964).
STEINBERG, ERWIN R.
REPRESENTATIVES OF THE NINETEEN CURRICULUM STUDY CENTERS SUPPORTED BY THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION GATHERED TO SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT EACH CENTER WAS DOING IN ORDER TO ANALYZE AND ATTACK COMMON CURRICULAR PROBLEMS, TO CONSIDER CERTAIN COMMON PROCEDURAL MATTERS SUCH AS THE PUBLICATION AND DISSEMINATION OF THEIR MATERIALS, TO EXAMINE RESEARCH DESIGNS, TESTS, AND TESTING PROCEDURES TO DRAW CONCLUSIONS ABOUT FUTURE DIRECTIONS FOR CURRICULUM EVALUATION, AND TO INFORM INTERESTED PROFESSIONS ABOUT THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE STUDY CENTERS. INCLUDED ARE THE SUMMARIES OF STATEMENTS MADE BY EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL CENTERS, ELEVEN IN ENGLISH AND EIGHT IN SOCIAL STUDIES. INTRODUCTORY ANALYSES ACCOMPANY BOTH THE GROUP REPORTS. WHILE NO TWO CENTERS ARE ATTACKING THE SAME PROBLEM OR USING THE SAME APPROACH, THE REPORTS SHOW THAT THERE ARE REMARKABLE SIMILARITIES IN MANY OF THEIR BASIC IDEAS. THE CENTERS SEEM TO SHARE A COMMON INTEREST IN INDUCTIVE TEACHING, SEQUENTIAL LEARNING, EVALUATION, TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAMS, NEW CURRICULAR SUBJECTS, NEW EMPHASES, AND THE NEWER TECHNICAL MEDIA. ALL OF THESE MATTERS OF COMMON INTEREST ARE DISCUSSED, AS IS THE WORK OF THE INDIVIDUAL CENTERS. THIS CONFERENCE REPORT IS CONCLUDED BY A COMMENTARY AND DISCUSSION ON THE ISSUES RAISED AT THE EVALUATION MEETING AND ON THE PAPERS PRESENTED BY THE INVITED SPEAKERS. THE PROBLEMS DISCUSSED IN THESE PAPERS ARE THOSE WHICH ARISE AT MANY STAGES OF CURRICULAR STUDY.
