Implementing Curriculum Change. Educational Management Review Series Number 20.
Traditional schools have assumed the role of fitting the individual for his place in society. Unique needs and interests have been placed second to "the common needs of all." Such educational programs are now being challenged by those who see a dehumanizing trend in current practices. In the new curriculums, primary emphasis is on satisfying the needs of each unique individual. This review presents some of the considerations involved in implementing new curriculums. There is no necessary contradiction between humaneness on the one hand, and systems approaches and technology on the other. This review, therefore, looks first at the need for carefully planned change programs, relating them specifically to the humanization of curriculums, and then it examines the place of formative, process, and summative evaluations in these programs. The concluding section presents some practical materials for the actual process of implementing new curriculums in schools. (Author)
