How to Install a New Curriculum.
Mahan, James M.; Gill, F. Jean
A series of booklets were prepared to assist the school administrator in dealing with new curricula. In this booklet, introductory information is provided based on the experience of extensive curriculum installations in 53 schools in New York and Pennsylvania. Each step in the installation process is described; references, resources, and a checklist for each step is also presented. The method suggested stresses the need to secure teacher cooperation, to select new programs carefully, to prepare for installation methodically, to conduct workshops, to provide extra assistance in the first stages of the actual use of the new program, and to evaluate the effectiveness of a new program. The booklet suggests that careful planning and attention to the opinions and needs of teachers who participate in the program are paramount. (JY)
