Curriculum Research and Evaluation: Implications for Personnel Training.
Bepko, Raymond A.; And Others
Discussed are personnel issues in special education from the perspective of an observational evaluation of an experimental course of study, "Social Learning Curriculum," used with students in 17 intermediate (ages 9 to 14 years) classes for the educable mentally retarded. Included is the 60-item rating scale which was used to evaluate teachers and students for the curriculum objectives of critical thinking and independent action. Results are examined in terms of the curriculum model based on emergence of a problem, differentiation of elements, and integration of problem elements with new knowledge. Findings are seen to indicate a wide variation in the implementation of the curriculum and suggest the need for providing teachers with training in the process of implementation as well as the content of a new curriculum.
