The Curriculum and the Frames of the Classroom.
Westbury, Ian
The object of this paper is to show, on the one hand, how a concern for curricular problems inexorably leads one into the mechanics and dynamics of the classroom and, on the other hand, how a concern for the classroom without a concern for context poses the danger that the questions that will arise are, from the viewpoint of the schools, wrong questions. The intersection between curriculum and instruction is possible. Data from studies of classrooms and teaching indicate that the way teachers manage the delivery of coverage of content and the organization of instruction seem to affect student achievement. Methods of classroom management that have the potential to improve instruction include programmed instruction, individualized instruction, and computer-assisted instruction. (Author/IRT)
