Curriculum Development: Teachers' Groups and Centers. Working Paper No. 10.
Schools Council, London (England).
This paper offers suggestions about facilities to support curriculum development, based on the principles that the motive power for such a development should come primarily from local groups of teachers accessible to one another, and that there should be effective and close collaboration between teachers and all those who are able to offer cooperation. The broad aims for research and development are set out, covering an examination of the objectives of teaching, the development and trial of methods and materials, evaluation of the development, and feedback to provide a starting point for further study. Local work by groups of teachers, already initiated or planned for the future, is described. These local centers will draw support from many sources, particularly local education authorities and the universities. Appendixes include a discussion of practical considerations, including meeting places for teachers' groups, staffing, local organization in support of groups or centers, and the financial implications; curriculum development in Wales; and suggested areas of interest in 1967-70.
