Curriculum Decision-Making in Alberta: A Janus Look.
Ledgerwood, C. D., Ed.
A collection of papers presented at a conference on curriculum decision making are compiled in this publication. The conference, sponsored by the Alberta Department of Education, Teachers Association and School Trustees Associations, had the primary purpose of recommending answers to the "who", "what," and "how" questions that arise in connection with curriculum decision making. In addition, it provided the opportunity for participants to learn more about the curriculum and instruction processes. Chapters I through IV contain case studies in social studies curriculum decision making, shared curriculum decision making, student and teacher involvement in curriculum decision making, and curriculum change. Chapters V and VI consist of talks on strategies for effecting curriculum change as well as offering an international curriculum perspective. A conference summary in Chapter VII notes the basic constraints, issues, and recommendations arising from the conference reports, discussions, and workshops. The final chapter is a follow through proposal for implementing the recommendations emanating from the conference. The appendix contains a list of participants. (Author/KSM)
