Analysis, Classification and Integration of Educational Objectives.
Tuckman, Bruce W.
The ultimate development of an integrated curriculum will necessitate the development and refinement of a scheme, testing the scheme on both subject matter and real life experiences, and greater utilization of existing resources in vocational education. The analysis, integration, and classification of objectives leading to an integrated curriculum will require various intensive activities: (1) in-residence writing programs, (2) laboratory-classroom opportunities to test germinal ideas, and (3) resources for a national testing program. The rationale for an integrated curriculum is contingent upon the fact that many learning experiences in different subject matter areas are quite similar, therefore an attempt is needed to group learning experiences based on process rather than subject matter. Constructing an integrated curriculum involves: development of behavioral objectives by subject matter, and utilization of a scheme for integrating objectives. Such an approach is expected to be utilized for the Study of Curriculums for Occupational Preparation in Education Project (SCOPE). A major advantage to an integrated curriculum is the resulting improved occupational relevance of subject matter material. (DM)
