A Theoretical Basis for Organization of Curriculum.
Birkel, Lane F.
This article proposes a new look at an old dispute in the area of curriculum theory, that of logical and psychological organization. First, erroneous assumptions about both of these forms of organization are examined. Unwarranted associations with the immaturity-maturity continuum, the process-product distinction, and the intellectual-practical dichotomy are pointed out. The paper sets forth a position, describing how logical and psychological considerations apply to the process of education. A theory of curriculum organization is developed which integrates both of these considerations. (Author)
