Social Studies Curriculm Specialists. Director's Report.
Carnegie-Mellon Univ., Pittsburgh, PA. Dept. of History.
The director's report is of the institute held for social studies curriculum specialists at Carnegie-Mellon University June 9-20, 1969. Fifty-five specialists were selected to attend from 223 applicants. The purpose of the institute was to develop techniques for the evaluation of curriculum projects, and the introduction of curriculum innovation into the public schools. Each morning 12 consultants presented curriculum projects and then a panel discussed the various rationales, strategies, and materials used. In the afternoons the participants made their individual analyses after being shown at the start of the institute the proper method by a visiting faculty member. During the institute, time was devoted also to demonstrating how workshops could be set up in the locales of the participants to disseminate the techniques learned in the institute. Evaluation of the institute showed that participants felt the first objective was accomplished, but that the second objective met with only limited success. (CWB)
