Planning Tomorrow's Curriculum.
Orsini-Romano, Clara; Pascale, Isabel D.
Curriculum planning for the future must recognize and accept certain premises: forces at work in society greatly influence the nature and direction of the curriculum; students in our society possess varied backgrounds, capabilities, interests, and aptitudes that must be met; common curriculum designs have many strengths; a curriculum to foster thinking and effective human relations is needed if education is to bring about change. Reasoning skills and independent learning should play an important part in tomorrow's curriculum, and more emphasis must be given to process than to memorization. Curriculum methodology thus becomes critical, and any method that will enable children to learn how to learn will be of great value. (DS)
