Role of Supervisor and Curriculum Director in a Climate of Change. 1965 Yearbook.
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
Chapter 1 of this yearbook describes the current educational milieu, discusses recent educational changes and implications for educational change, and notes both problems which have hindered progress and possible solutions. Chapter 2 indicates that more than scholarship in a subject is needed in teaching, and suggests possible classroom organizational patterns which place the focus of education on the individual. Chapter 3 describes the emerging functions of the supervisor and curriculum leader, and suggests staff organizational patterns for curriculum implementation and development and for improvement of teaching. Chapter 4 suggests that these new functions require new competencies, more thorough preparation, and clearer standards of professionalism. Chapter 5 describes promising new curriculum practices on the elementary and secondary levels. Chapter 6 describes conceptual tools needed by the professional supervisor and curriculum specialist in the future, and points the way for development of such tools. (TT)
