Curriculum Materials Analysis System; A Summary of Experience.
Knight, Merle M.; Hodges, James O.
Social Science Education Consortium Newsletter, n7 pl-8 May 1969
The purposes of this Newsletter are: to summarize the Consortium's recent experience with the Curriculum Materials Analysis System (CMAS); to report the activities of others using CMAS; and to describe available analyses of curriculum materials, including their prices. Most of the analyses were done by teachers and supervisors in work groups receiving some assistance from Social Science Education Consortium (SSEC) staff members. CMAS was originally developed by SSEC directors Irving Morrissett and W. W. Stevens, Jr. primarily for evaluating new social studies project materials. A summary of the complete CMAS is included. The six major sections are: Descriptive Characteristics, Rationale and Ojectives, Antecedent Conditions, Content, Instructional Theory and Teaching Strategies, and Overall Judgments. The materials covered by the 43 analyses range from anthropology to sociology, for grades 1 to 12. (DJB)
