Gearing Up for Curriculum Change; A Chance for Every Child: Assessing Needs through Specific Goals.
Mary Lawrence, Sister
The diversity of geographic location and type of student in the Toledo diocesan school system have made it increasingly important for instruction to become individualized. Upon investigation of the system's needs and possibilities for change, a competency-based curriculum model was selected because it offered a structured, systematic, planning, implementation, and revision model. The schools attempted to utilize a number of generalizations potentially applicable to the educational change process in the implmentation of their competency-based instructional systems. Curriculum guides developed by the schools were major tools in implementing the philosophy of competency-based education. Curriculum guidelines have been field tested, revised, and disseminated, and inservicing is taking place. The University of Toledo College of Education Competency-based Teacher Education Program has been instrumental in developing educational change in all sectors. Both public and private schools, however, have also contributed in a continuous effort to effect change in the Toledo school system. (PB)
