Improving Curriculum Decision Making.
Robinson, F. G.; And Others
Seven papers in Part III of "Studies in Curriculum Decision Making" bring forward views on improving curriculum decision making. The first paper outlines actions that may be taken to strengthen Ministry of Education guidelines. In the second paper, the teacher's role in curriculum planning is examined. The teacher as a user of research, participant in research, and as an active partner in curriculum development is discussed in the third paper. The concept of curriculum emphasis (globally different purposes for teaching a given subject) is offered as a topic for future investigation in the fourth paper. The fifth paper, "The Choice of Successive Approximations to an Ideal (A Levels-of-Use Profile in Mathematics," addresses the widely shared image of the mathematically educated person and how the progressive implementation of this image, in closer approximation in practice, can be productively construed in decision-making terms. The sixth paper describes a strategy for managing implementation of curriculum innovations. The seventh paper identifies skills required by the curriculum manager (or in some instances, the external change agent) in using implementation strategies developed in the sixth paper and strategies for performing curriculum planning, development, and evaluation tasks.
