Curriculum Change Toward the 21st Century. The Curriculum Series.
Shane, Harold G.
This book presents an overview of the probable directions and needs of education during the last quarter of the 20th century, as conceived by the 46 members of the National Education Association's 1976 International Panel. Chapter 1 briefly discusses the panel's objectives and describes the organization of the book. Chapter 2 presents the images of the future shared by the panelists, as well as some of their conflicting opinions. Chapter 3 offers speculations about human potential in an increasingly interdependent world community. Chapter 4 updates and reformulates NEA's seven cardinal principles, which were originally published in 1918. Chapter 5 presents 28 cardinal premises to guide education for the next 25 years. Chapter 6 focuses on how parents, teachers, and other community members can work together in determining local educational needs. Chapter 7 discusses future educational changes in the United States, drawing on the 28 cardinal premises from chapter 5. Chapter 8 examines how educational content may change if certain of the cardinal premises are applied to curriculum development. Chapter 9 discusses the total school as a center for personalized learning. Also included are selected excerpts from the panelists' comments, and an extensive bibliography of selected readings.
