Curriculum Leaders: Improving Their Influence. A Report from the ASCD Working Group on the Role, Function, and Preparation of the Curriculum Worker.
Christensen, Donald J.; And Others
Initially, the committee whose members authored this monograph was commissioned to investigate the current thoughts and practices surrounding the certification of the curriculum worker. As evidenced by the papers contained here, the group's perspective broadened to include attention to the role, function, and preparation of the curriculum leader. Eugene Bartoo's paper presents a historical review and performs a conceptual housecleaning as he establishes a framework for guiding further analysis and for issuing recommendations by the working group. Allan Sturges presents and examines data about what state certification officials are thinking and are doing about curriculum leader certification. Allan Sturges and Veronica Kollar present information on competency-based preparation programs for curriculum workers. Donald J. Christensen examines the tasks, concerns, satisfactions, and career lines of the curriculum worker. A separate chapter presents the group's summaries and recommendations. The final chapter is an annotated bibliography. (Author/IRT)
