Curriculum Development. A Handbook for School Districts.
Wing, Richard L.; And Others
This handbook has been prepared to assist administrators, curriculum specialists, and teachers in local school districts and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) in the state of New York in developing curriculum, but it could be used by local education agencies in any state. The introduction describes the role of the state and of local districts in curriculum development. Chapter 1 provides local education agencies with suggestions on how to prepare for curriculum development, with particular emphasis on leadership, administration, and supervision. The remaining chapters describe the development process itself under the headings needs assessment, planning, obtaining resources to support curriculum development activities, development of curriculum, implementation, and evaluation. Each element of the process is presented in a chart that is repeated in each chapter. Brief checklists are included as a means of assessing progress through each phase of the local curriculum project. (Author/JM)
