A New Perspective for Curriculum Objectives.
Abdel-Halim, A. El-Mahdi
The purposes of this paper are to examine the dominant theory on curriculum objectives, as represented in the production model and to develop a new perspective for objectives. The guiding theoretical framework is system theory. Data were gathered by compiling the work of advocates of the production model. The data are explained, analyzed, and interpreted in view of their chief assumptions and consequences and in view of the findings of recent research. The real nature of curriculum objectives and a new way of thinking of them is explained. Three propositions demonstrate the basic conceptual structure the speaker has found useful in theory building. The implications of these propositions are outlined. (Author/IRT)
