Rational Solutions to Curricular Issues.
Finder, Morris
This paper explains the need for pluralism as a principle by which to bring reason and order to the complicated field of curriculum. Pluralism implies that a function of the curriculum specialist is to uncover the assumptions and analyze the arguments of curricular statements. In exemplifying such a process of analysis, the paper has shown that objectives cannot be understood and communicated apart from the process through which they have been evolved; that as the first principle of teaching, instructional objectives are useful even in the creative and constructive arts; and that the principles of teaching are the criteria for evaluating a teacher.
