Implementation of a Process Curriculum by the Campus Team Strategy.
Cole, Henry P.; Herlihy, John G.
This document presents an overview of a process-promoting curriculum, "Man: A Course of Study" (MACOS), developed by the Eastern Regional Institute for Education (ERIE). The ERIC project is designed to promote proper implementation of the curriculum and teacher commitment and competency in the practice and process of education. The campus team strategy was used to implement the program. After a summer workshop, campus teams were sent to participating institutions to conduct MACOS preservice and in-service training. Data collection instruments included administrator's, in-service education, and preservice education questionnaires; report forms for campus teams and core staff; MACOS familiarity tests for pupils, preservice and in-service teachers; familiarity inventory for preservice teachers; lesson reporting forms for in-service teachers; and semantic differentials for attitude assessment toward MACOS administered to preservice and in-service teachers. Data analysis indicated eleven positive results of the program including participant interaction; value of the project preservice and in-service education programs; facilitation of curriculum installations; and knowledge of adult samples concerning philosophy, theory, and design of MACOS. Additional areas of concern included the value and implications of the project. A review of the budget and a 30-item bibliography are included. (MJM)
