Instructional Objectives in Citizen Education: Final Report.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This report presents information about citizen education objectives since 1966. The document comprises three major sections. The first section describes strategies used in searching for objectives, examines trends in citizen education, reports on increasing interest in writing objectives since 1966, and identifies skill and knowledge objectives. Knowledge objectives are identified for civics, environmental education, law-related education, ethnic education, and global studies. Skill objectives are suggested for inquiry training, values education, conflict resolution, and political participation. The second section identifies problems in locating objectives (methodological issues) and difficulties relating to the content and form of objectives (substantive issues). Section III recommends developing an objectives handbook and an objectives reference file which include objectives for various grade levels, content areas, and instructional modes. A final suggestion is to explore the possibility of coordinating the objectives reference file with a compendium of instructional materials in citizen education. (Author/DB)
