Curriculum Change: Direction and Process.
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
Four conference presentations in this report provide insights into and understandings of both the process of curriculum change and the direction that such change should take. Professor John I. Goodlad, in the first address, urges the development of a "humanistic curriculum." In the second presentation, Dr. William G. Hollister, a mental health authority, tells how to use traditional subject matter fields to achieve not only cognitive objectives, but also objectives in the affective domain, thereby more fully developing the humane characteristics of children. Professor Harry S. Broudy, an educational philosopher, points out the factors that must be included in a unified theory of education and takes the position that the lack of such a theory of education has in the past prevented development of a humanistic curriculum. In the last presentation, Professor Ronald Lippitt, an authority on the process of planned change, discusses a model for bringing about change in the curriculum. He analyzes six phases of the change process and illustrates these changes in detail by describing the steps that a curriculum change agent might take in developing new programs of education.
