Toward a National Standard for Oregon's Common Curriculum Goals: A Series of Briefing Papers for Decision Makers.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
A framework for the revision of Oregon's curriculum goals is presented in this set of briefing papers. The papers offer information to help administrators and other educators understand curricular and instructional trends in each of the state's eight required subject areas: mathematics, science, English language arts, social studies, art, music, health, and physical education. Each paper offers a definition and purpose of the subject area, describes current trends, compares traditional and desired practices, and describes a vision of the discipline in the year 2000. The curriculum framework supports the development of outcome-based education programs grounded in research and theory and the aims of the Oregon Educational Reform Act for the 21st Century. Recommendations are made to connect traditional and innovative practices, develop effective implementation strategies, and balance support for education with the pressure for change. References accompany the papers. (LMI)
