Curriculum Imperative: Survival of Self in Society.
Beck, Robert H.; And Others
In the four major speeches presented the question under consideration was basically how can the school curriculum best be developed to enable the individual to realize his potential as an independent entity in a mass society. The first speech, "Individuality, Society, and Education" considers this problem from a philosophical base. In the second, "American Society in the 1980's: Trends, Themes, and Issues," the sociological aspects are discussed. The last two speeches, "The Curriculum in Confrontation with Tomorrow" and "Issues in Secondary Education for the Future," focuses on implications for elementary and secondary curriculum design and for teacher education of the problem of the individual in our society.
