Guide for Teachers for Evaluating the Materials and Practices of the Thirteen-College Project.
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
This document includes reports prepared by teachers on their year's work in the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program (TCCP). It concerns the project of seeking to develop a curriculum based on the learner as doer, not as the passive recipient of knowledge defined by someone else. It is intended to serve as a guide for teachers. This document asked teachers to list the components of the TCCP program that they are actually using and to give anecdotal accounts of a few things that impressed them most about the project, either because they proved so effective or not. The first part of this document presents the introduction; the second part presents notes on the curriculum for 1967-68, which is a summary of selected aspects of the year's reports. It begins with a preface on student goals (learn skills, learn to think, learn something important, develop positive attitudes, and become involved in project activities). The second part continues with an account of 4 features that serve to distinguish the project from conventional curriculums. The third and final part poses questions about the project to help set the teacher's reports in terms of the present framework. (Author/PG)
