Developing a Curriculum Model; An Inquiry-Oriented Curriculum Model for the Development of Social Science Concepts in Field Laboratories.
Sebolt, Alberta P.
The paper addresses itself to the R-L-L Curriculum Model as developed by this Title III ESEA Project. The elements of the model are described: 1) The educational purposes or objectives as defined within the scope of the basic activities of man; 2) The learning experiences necessary for the behavioral objectives stated in terms described by Mager; 3) Organization of these experiences around content, multi-media instruction, and the field lab where primary source materials provide the vehicle for inquiry; 4) The teaching strategies are based on conceptualization as a learning theory. The teacher-directed Taba Model has been modified and combined with the R-L-L Model and is based on the theory that learning is a continuous process; 5) Evaluation through feedback of the learning experiences in terms of their function in the process of conceptualization; 6) A test for concept development. Reflecting concern with the "real world," each model is designed as a learning unit which utilizes the community as a laboratory. The nature of the content is determined by social science concepts which are an integral part of the problem-solving process and implicit to an understanding of community. SO 000 068 and SO 000 070 describe Curriculum Model #1 and #2 learning units. (SBE)
