Junior College Research Review, v4 n6 Feb 1970
The literature in five curriculum-related areas is reviewed. The first article stresses the need for rational curriculum planning in the junior college. To meet this need, curriculum decision-makers must arrive at educational objectives that will lead to the achievement of intended learning and the attainment of institutional purposes. The second article reviews the report of a project which showed that a composite of instructional procedures resulted in decreased student attrition and greater achievement. The third article concerns black studies in the junior college. It is generally agreed that courses in black studies should be introduced and more black instructors should be employed. There are serious conflicts between black activists and educators regarding the staffing, content, and purpose of the courses. The fourth article presents a staffing rationale for curriculum development in the junior college. The functions of course coordinator and program coordinator are outlined. The last article discusses intercampus curriculum coordination in an urban community college system. The problems of preserving individual rights within a large bureaucracy are discussed. (MS)
