Montana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Helena.
To assist Montana school boards, this manual outlines a four-step process for curriculum review. After a brief introduction on how to use the manual, part 1 describes the first step--organizing the curriculum committee. Covered are the committee's range of concerns, membership, responsibilities, resources, and other factors. Lists of state resource personnel and of national professional organizations are attached. Part 2 discusses identifying and assessing current district philosophies and practices. Guidelines are offered for examining present conditions and evaluating present practices, and samples of program goals and of district philosophies and goals are given. Part 3 suggests questions to ask in writing or revising the curriculum and provides samples of courses of study, curriculum scope and sequence, relating of goals to resources, a flow chart, and a competency-based curriculum. Part 4 describes the final step, assessing the new curriculum. A bibliography is appended. (RW)
