Curricular Concerns in a Revolutionary Era. Readings from "Educational Leadership."
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
Sixty-six articles and two poems, selected from "Educational Leadership", comprise this book. Major emphasis is on curricular concerns and instruction in the schools of today and the future. Authors provide insightful, comprehensive understanding about educational issues and concerns rather than attempt final answers to complex problems. Re-examination of educational goals is necessary before future curriculum is reshaped. The materials, divided into 11 sections, are arranged partly in chronological order by date of publication and partly in accordance with logical treatment of the instructional concern represented. The divisions are: 1) Values; 2) Individualization; 3) Social Involvement; 4) The Search for Theory; 5) Integration; 6) Ethnic Studies; 7) Student Rights and Responsibilities; 8) Whorls in a Revolutionary Society; 9) Politics; 10) Adapting to the Needs of our Time; and, 11) In a World Setting. The various authors uphold the potential of each individual and express the importance of increasing interrelationship and interdependence of human affairs in the world scene. New meaning and quality in education can be agents of change toward solving world problems. Included is a list of Autumn 1971 ASCD publications and an author-subject-title index that is alphabetically arranged. (Editor/SJM)
