KINNIELL, WILLIAM T.; AND OTHERS
A DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM WAS UNDERTAKEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF SHOWING HOW A STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION CAN UTILIZE ITS RESOURCES AND SUBJECT MATTER SPECIALISTS IN DEVELOPING OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES TO IMPLEMENT SECONDARY SCHOOL CURRICULUM IN THE STATE. SUBJECT SPECIALISTS (26) REPRESENTING 10 COURSE FIELDS WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PROGRAM TO DEVELOP PLANS AND PROCEDURES. AREA MEETINGS WERE SCHEDULED SO THAT SEVERAL DESIGNERS COULD MEET TOGETHER TO DEVELOP VISUALS AND CONSTRUCTIVELY CRITICIZE ONE ANOTHER'S WORK. A GROUP OF 59 CLASSROOM TEACHERS WAS SELECTED TO FIELD TEST THE VISUALS. EACH VISUAL WAS TESTED IN AT LEAST FOUR CLASSROOMS. AFTER FIELD TEST FOLLOWUP, A FINAL COPY OF EACH VISUAL WAS PRINTED ON DIAZO FILM FOR THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION. A COPY OF EACH MASTER WAS PREPARED TO SERVE AS AN ORIGINAL FOR PREPARING PLATES FROM WHICH MULTIPLE MASTERS CAN BE PRINTED ON TRANSLUCENT VELLUM AND DISTRIBUTED TO SCHOOLS. THERE WERE 2,007 MASTERS DEVELOPED. SUBJECT AREAS WERE--(1) MODERN MATHEMATICS, (2) MODERN ALGEBRA, (3) MODERN GEOMETRY, (4) EARTH SCIENCE, (5) MODERN CHEMISTRY, (6) ENGLISH GRAMMAR (GRADE 8), (7) ENGLISH GRAMMAR (GRADE 11), (8) INTRODUCTORY SPANISH, (9) INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, AND (10) WORLD GEOGRAPHY.
