A Methodology of Experience: Part II, The Process of Inquiry.
Doll, William E., Jr.
The first section of this paper which is the second on the same topic recapitulates the assessment of behavioral objectives originally stated in Part I, essentially to serve as a contrast to the "Dewey model" which states that goals should be determined "by" the students rather than "for" them, and hence that ends should not exist as fixed points external to activity, but rather should function as terminals of deliberation and turning points in activity. The second section develops the Dewey model in terms of inquiry and experience, while the third section deals with its implications for the curriculum. The report emphasizes the following curricular principles: (1) the field of study should be explored from the viewpoint of its practical problems and operations; (2) the students' own habits of inquiry and decision making should be explored, developed, and transformed; (3) students should be given areas in which they can exercise power, responsibility, and choice; and (4) the curriculum pattern should encourage pluralism and alternatives.
