Case Studies in Curriculum Change: Great Britain and the United States.
Reid, William A., Ed.; Walker, Decker F., Ed.
In order to provide the educator with effective ways to translate new curriculum goals into classroom practice, this book presents seven case studies of curriculum change in Great Britain and the United States. The studies offer descriptions of a variety of phases in planning and implementation including curriculum content, planning, institutional and administrative constraints, and budget. The seven case studies include: (1) Stability and Change; the Public Schools of Gary, Indiana, 1940-70; (2) Negotiating Curriculum Change in a British College of Education; (3) Curriculum Development in an Art Project; (4) The Head Teacher as Innovator: A Study of an English School District; (5) Handling Innovation in the Classroom: Two Scottish Examples; (6) The Diffusion of Keynesian Macroeconomics through American High School Textbooks, 1936-70; and (7) The Changing Curriculum: Theory and Practice.
