Generalized Synthesis Plan. Synthesis Proceeds From Earlier Curricular Search and Analysis Efforts.
Bickel, R. F.; Cole, H. P.
This paper outlines procedures for (1) identification and review of curricular materials and programs that can be used for articulating a complete process curriculum, (2) specification of synthesis tasks by which well designed materials can be augmented to be more effective and better articulated for classroom use, (3) development of teacher education materials and programs to insure utilization of instructional materials and procedures, and (4) development of evaluation procedures to determine the effectiveness of the augmented and articulated materials in relation to specified learning objectives. This plan, patterned after the Popham and Baker "Product Development Cycle," may be of interest to curriculum designers or educational change agents concerned with articulation and utilization of knowledge and technology in the form of existing curriculum materials.
