English Curriculum Study and Dissemination Center. Final Report.
Douglas, Wallace W.
This report describes in some detail the changes in work patterns and purposes that occurred in one curriculum study center, with an original charge to make recommendations to the schools about the curriculum in composition, as it became, in effect, a teacher/ school resource center, located in a university. The report is important as a record of creative local action, involving school and university personnel (and latterly, community representatives) in co-operative work to deal with school-university problems in indigenous form. The report also specifies the form of the in-service education program for teachers that, of the various ones tried at the Center, seemed to the staff to offer the best possibility of successful use elsewhere. The report makes clear the precise ends in changed teacher behavior that were to be sought; and it shows the necessary relation between such ends and the means that were developed, independence as the end being indissolubly linked with the growth of independence in and through the means.
