Report of the 1970-71 Summer Curriculum Development Program of the Diablo Valley Education Project.
New York Friends Group, Inc., New York. Center for War/Peace Studies.; Diablo Valley Education Project, Orinda, CA.
This report provides an overview of the purposes, participants, content, and evaluation of a four-week workshop. The purposes of the workshop were to: 1) present an introduction to the concepts conflict, violence, and interdependence; 2) develop an awareness of the need for value analysis in the classroom; 3) teach techniques and theory of value clarification and analysis in the classroom; and, 4) produce conceptually-oriented preliminary units on the above concepts and value analysis which might later be edited for publication. A panel of consultants provided the pedagogical and substantive basis from which the teachers could choose the content samples and design learning strategies for their units. (Consultant papers by David Daniels, Ralph Goldman, David King, Robert North, and Michael Scriven are available through the ERIC system.) A content outline of these formal workshop presentations is included in this report. A total of fourteen draft units resulted from the summer program. An appendix provides brief descriptions of these units. (Author/JLB)
