The Curriculum Materials Center: A Study of Policies and Practices in Selected Centers.
Johnson, Harlan R.
The role of the curriculum materials center at Northern Arizona University is one of providing materials for students who are working on lesson plans and curriculum planning, and for faculty who wish to utilize instructional materials in their lectures. The center, which is housed in the university library, contains textbooks, courses of study units, and other materials related to curriculum in elementary and secondary schools. The purpose of this study was to provide information and ideas regarding the policies and practices of selected curriculum materials centers so that the College of Education could more adequately approach the problems of establishing a center at the University. Included in this study were: discussions with the College of Education faculty, visits to instructional materials centers at five universities, 66 responses from 39 states to a questionnaire sent to colleges and universities with teacher education programs, and an examination of materials relevant to the establishment of a center. The results of these activities are reported upon, and suggestions are made for establishing the curriculum materials center. A copy of the questionnaire used is appended. (Author/SJ)
