Coordination of Organic Curriculum Development in the Public Schools of Quincy, Massachusetts. Final Report.
Sargent, Stewart S.
This report describes organic curriculum development, the redefinition of goals, and the overhaul of the educational process in the public schools of Quincy, Massachusetts. Superintendent of 15 school districts met in Florida in May 1967 to establish the initial network of the program entitled Educational System for the Seventies (ES '70). The first of three sections deals with accomplishments of project objectives, outlining steps taken to design a learner responsive school system. The second deals with efforts of the Quincy Public Schools in concert with other ES '70 systems. This includes activities outside the regular network meetings. The final section deals with recommendations for the next steps in order to produce a learner responsive school system. The cooperative development and dissemination scheduled to take place within the network structure has failed to a degree for the lack of a management system. A highly structured system was needed to generate specific procedures to produce replicability and applicability in other cooperating school systems. Appendixes include documentary evidence to support the text. (Related documents SP 005 657 and SP 005 658 are ES'70 developments in other schools.) (MJM)
