Title III Project in Program Development and In-Service Training for Improvement of Curriculum, Organization and Instruction. Carteret County Schools, North Carolina. Application for Continuation Grant.
Carteret County Public Schools, Beaufort, NC.
The system-wide curriculum development and instructional improvement (ESEA Title III) project concerned itself in the first phase with mathematics; emphasis in the 18-month second phase will be in social studies. In spring 1968, committees were formed representing the primary, middle, junior high and high school levels, and college consultants and specialists were selected to assist them in preparation of inventories (for identification of basic problems in mathematics) and of attitude surveys and diagnostic tests (for use in preparing and conducting inservice classes). All committees followed the approach presented in a 3-day July workshop on Systems Analysis Application to Curriculum Development. Four inservice classes were held during the spring of 1969 with 145 teachers participating; results of pre-and posttests indicated a gain in knowledge of mathematics processes and concepts at all levels. Students in grades 5-8 were pretested and will be posttested and compared to control groups. During the summer continuous progress flow charts are being developed for grades 1-8, curriculum materials reviewed and selected (or designed and developed), and curriculum guides prepared. Basically the same procedures are proposed for curriculum planning, inservice training, and materials and media development in the social studies field during the coming year. (Included are committee reports, measurement instruments with results, and outlines of mathematics inservice training courses.)
