Developing a Process Model for Student Reformation of Curriculum and Instruction.
Grimaldi, Ettore P.; Garrett, Philip R.
This paper presents a working framework for a controlled change of instructional practices within a community college. A methodology for the training of students and faculty in the evaluation of curriculum and instruction is presented: (1) establish a positive rationale for evaluation within a context of meaningful philosophy; (2) determine a method for forming a committee and how the committee will be composed; (3) conduct a colloquium for the committee to study concepts of research, curriculum-building and evaluation; (4) study and disseminate the research literature on curriculum-building, evaluation models, and their application; (5) create the evaluative format cooperatively; (6) articulate the component aspects of the format, listing explicit behaviors, standards for judgment, and rationale for the criteria; (7) publish the format package for review, and allow sufficient time for assimilation and reformation; (8) reformulate course objectives after a teacher-controlled trial period; (9) determine procedures for the committee to perpetuate itself for continuous operation of the process.
