Adapting Curriculums to Local Needs.
Wall, James E.
This paper discusses factors pertaining to the adaptation of vocational-technical curriculums to local school systems. A major problem is that many available curriculum materials and programs have no evidence of their validation for learning effectiveness by field-testing and feedback. Such evidence is needed by local school personnel before sound judgments can be made to adapt curriculums. Problems of curriculum adaptation usually center around the lack of resources and materials required to develop a new curriculum component. Strategies to implement change, with relationships among personnel involved, are examined and topics that should be included in the instructor's manual are presented. A listing of curriculum materials sources in several categories is appended. (MF)
