DEEP 1969. Perspectives on a 5-Year Experiment in Curriculum Change.
Joint Council on Economic Education, New York, NY.
This report analyzes the five year history of the Developmental Economic Education Program (DEEP). The authors have written from a variety of perspectives explaining how and why certain objectives were realized and others were not. Because their perspectives are different, the authors do not always agree in their interpretations. In the first two chapters, DEEP is examined from the viewpoint of three Joint Council on Economic Education Staff members. M. L. Frankel recounts the history while John E. Maher and S. Stowell Symmes go on to review the changes in programs and goals brought about through experience. The succeeding five chapters examine five years of experimentation from the critical standpoint of educators outside Joint Council staff. George P. Hollenbeck evaluates the program from an external viewpoint. Donald D. Dowd, Sidney P. Marland, John F. Soboslay, and Suzanne Wiggins examine DEEP utilizing their in-service experience with DEEP school systems. The last chapter, by Thomas Hastings, is a total assessment of all these reports.
