Development and Evaluation of Course Goals in Science and Language Arts for Grades K-12. Final Report.
Allen, Jack; Wolmut, Peter
Program goals, intended outcomes of a complete area of instruction, course goals, and desired outcomes of specific courses or instructional units are discussed in the general introduction to the collection of program and course goals for science and language arts prepared for the use of teachers in grades K-12 in the Portland, Oregon, Metropolitan Schools. The approximately 1,000 language arts and 1,500 natural science course goals are contained in separate volumes and are arranged in order according to taxonomies of the respective subject areas. Each course goal is classified according to the program goal to which it relates, the nature of the goal (process or knowledge), and the appropriate initial instructional level where it is thought reasonable to begin seeking attainment of that goal (primary, intermediate, upper, or high school levels). Course goals that are logically related are indicated in the lists. The possible uses of these lists for assessing present school goals, as starting points for discussion, as a basis of accountability assessments and in guiding the revision of curricula are discussed. (The appendix on "communications, questionnaires, and forms" referred to in the project report is not included in this collection.) (AL)
