Educating the Baccalaureate Social Worker: A Curriculum Development Resource Guide, Volume II.
Baer, Betty L., Ed.; Federico, Ronald C., Ed.
Program structure and curriculum for the undergraduate social work student are discussed in this second volume from the Undergraduate Social Work Curriculum Development Project. In Part I the major themes and curriculum implications that emerged from the first two years of the Project's work are identified and the activities of the third year are summarized. The three chapters in Part II discuss the relationships that a social work program and its faculty must develop and maintain with the social work practice community, with the university or college, and with its own students. For each of these constituencies a different relationship is recommended. The selection, development, and maintenance of a learning environment and teaching strategies conducive to the development of the future professional social worker are also addressed. Part III includes three chapters that focus on the setting of educational objectives appropriate to the attainment of baccalaureate professional social work practice competencies and issues in the assessment of a program's success in achieving its intended outcomes. The final section contains four chapters on curriculum content. Methods; research; human behavior and the social environment; and social welfare services and policy are discussed in this section. It is suggested that this information may be helpful to faculty members as they decide on the courses and course content appropriate for their particular programs. (Author/SF)
