Encounters in Thinking: A Compendium of Curricula for Process Education.
Seferian, Albert; Cole, Henry P.
The authors have defined process education as the systematic...cultivation of those generalizable and adaptive behaviors which underlie all creative activity and which the learner engages in to acquire, organize, and utilize information and experience for effective problem solving and productive living. The curricula listed in this document are representative of those identified as having potential for process education, according to stated criteria. The first section of the document contains short summaries of several curricula selected. Section two is an annotated listing of additional curricula not yet subjected to the careful study that has gone into programs listed in the other two sections. The more detailed description of curricula in section three have actually been installed in multiple school settings under ERIE supervision. An additional purpose of this last section is to provide a model for use in the study of any curriculum. Sample curricula include, among many others: The Intergroup Relations Curriculum; Science Curriculum Improvement Study (SCIS); Man: A Course of Study (MACOS); Project BEACON; MATCH Project; Taba Social Studies Curriculum; Thinking Box; National Environmental Education Development (NEED); and, Primary Education Project (PEP).
