Developing a Curriculum: A Practical Guide. Unwin Education Books: 12.
Nicholls, Audrey; Nicholls, S. Howard
The term curriculum development is a fairly new one in the educational language, though it is being used with increasing frequency. The purpose of this book is to explain what is meant by curriculum development and what is involved in curriculum planning. It outlines the relationship among the various elements in the curriculum and explains the factors that influence this relationship. Its purpose is not to suggest to teachers either what or how they should be teaching their pupils. This book, hopefully, will help teachers to establish a logical process enabling them to build a curriculum that, at any given time, is the best one they can provide for their pupils. It will also indicate the factors that influence the curriculum and, therefore, need to be taken into account. The chapters focus on situational analysis as well as on the four major stages of the curriculum development process: selection of objectives, selection and organization of content, selection and organization of learning experiences (methods), and evaluation.
