A Proposal for the Development of an English Curriculum.
Tingle, Mary J.
A supervisor undertaking the demanding task of English curriculum planning for grades 1-12 must recognize that teaching and continuing curriculum development should proceed concurrently in a situation flexible enough to encompass evaluation and change. Consequently, procedures to be considered in curriculum development should include (1) studying as objectively as possible the students' cultural, social, and economic environments; (2) studying the student to learn his potential, motivations, values, and sources of integrity; (3) studying available information on the learning processes; (4) reviewing the content of the current English curriculum, considering reasons for change, modification, or retention of any of its parts; (5) developing a statement of objectives for the English curriculum as a reference point in maintaining consistency and relevancy for teaching procedures, content, and sequence of presentation; (6) selecting the content of the curriculum; and (7) planning for curriculum evaluation and revision.
