Handbook of Curriculum Design for Individualized Instruction; A Systems Approach.
Drumheller, Sidney J.
Precise guidelines for designing and developing curriculum materials from vigorously defined behavioral objectives are presented. The guidelines are designed to enable an educator to identify all the objectives appropriate for a unit of instruction, to define a procedure for ordering or programing objectives into an educational sequence, and to outline the procedures needed for communicating specifications to teachers and to writers. A systems approach to curriculum design is followed; that is, an experience-based model of a process is developed to identify the elements, relationships, and sequences essential to the production of curriculum materials by a team of specialists. The "Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: Cognitive Domain" by Benjamin Bloom was used as the source of the classification system which underlies the model. A set of exercises is provided for those who would like to develop a proficiency in this method of curriculum design. A foldout chart shows the Bloom taxonomy, the modified model of the taxonomy developed in this guide, a model for designing curricula from objectives based on the modified taxonomy, and a sample check list of behavioral objectives.
