Curriculum Development at Pretty Eagle School: Some Success and Some Problems.
Worrest, Henry N.
The curriculum development project at Pretty Eagle School (a private school on the Crow Indian Reservation in southeastern Montana serving 100 students, prekindergarten through grade 8) was started in the fall 1980 with funding acquired from federal and private sources. A comprehensive program of curriculum development and staff development was implemented through a contract with Montana State University for graduate level courses dealing with planned change; methodology of curriculum development, i.e., curriculum mapping, scope and sequence, objectives writing, etc., and courses for teachers of Indian children. The second year of the project (1981-82) involved the hiring of a small group of specialists to assist in areas such as testing, science, mathematics, and language arts. By the end of the year, teachers had developed a rough draft of their curriculum document. During the summer 1982, the rough draft was edited and re-edited to provide a draft in a format usable by the teachers. A director, hired for the current school year (1982-83), will be responsible for finalizing the curriculum document. (AH)
