Some Thoughts About Curriculum Development.
Based on experiences gained through involvement with three curriculum development projects, one relating to an elementary science curriculum and the other two relating to junior high school mathematics, the following recommendations are presented: (1) financial support from an outside agency, public or private, makes boldness more probable in curriculum development; (2) curriculum development is an important kind of educational research highly appropriate for the National Institute of Education (NIE) to support; (3) curriculum development of the future should have several types of sources of support and of sponsoring agencies; (4) first priority should be given to teams of scholars and teachers and to interdisciplinary projects; and (5) NIE should support research, development, and implementation in a 50-30-20 ratio, respectively.
