CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT THROUGH SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY COLLABORATION. THE PITTSBURGH CURRICULUM CONTINUITY DEMONSTRATION, 4.
GOW, J. STEELE, JR.; AND OTHERS
A REPORT WAS MADE OF A 5-YEAR EFFORT TO FILL THE NEED FOR GREATER CURRICULUM CONTINUITY IN THE STUDENT'S TOTAL FORMAL EDUCATION. EVERY SEGMENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL CONTINUUM FROM KINDERGARTEN TO COLLEGE RECEIVED ATTENTION. CURRICULUMS IN ENGLISH AND READING, THE NATURAL AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, MATHEMATICS, AND FOREIGN LANGUAGE WERE ANALYZED AND REVISED, FIELD TESTED AND EVALUATED, DEMONSTRATED, AND DISSEMINATED. INVESTIGATIONS OF STUDENT PROGRESSION PRACTICES, INTERLEVEL AND INTERINSTITUTIONAL COLLABORATION, AND VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURES AND OPERATING PROCEDURES WERE MADE FOR IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION IN A CITY AND REGION. THE HISTORY OF THE PLANNING, FUNDING, STAFFING, AND IMPLEMENTING STAGES WAS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. THE COURSE MATERIALS DEVELOPED CONSISTED OF MIMEOGRAPHED COURSE SYLLABUSES, STUDY GUIDES, PATTERN DRILLS, READINGS, AND OTHER INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE WITH ACADEMICALLY ABLE STUDENTS. MODIFICATION OF PROFESSIONAL AND INSTITUTIONAL BEHAVIOR THROUGH SUCH EFFORTS AS DISSEMINATION AND ELABORATION WAS ANALYZED. SUCCESSES AND SHORTCOMINGS OF THE CURRICULUM CONTINUITY DEMONSTRATION WERE DETAILED IN THE APPRAISAL SECTION. (GD)
