Applying the Systems Approach to Curriculum Development in the Science Classroom.
Boblick, John M.
Described is a method by which a classroom teacher may apply the systems approach to the development of the instructional segments which he uses in his daily teaching activities. The author proposes a three-dimensional curriculum design model and discusses its main features. The basic points which characterize the application of the systems approach to educational problems are identified. A detailed discussion of the procedures used in the development of an instructional package entitled "Writing Chemical Formulas" is given. Major ideas in this paper are illustrated by several diagrams and a flow chart. The appendix contains (1) a list of the educational goals for Montgomery County Public Schools, (2) a list of objectives for an instructional package, and (3) the hierarchy of objectives for the "Writing Chemical Formulas" unit.
