The Current Scene in Curriculum. Occasional Paper 1.
Meant primarily as a brief synthesis for consultants and supervisors in state departments of education, this statement represents an overview of the prevailing instructional scene. It notes the current swing to the right in educational approaches, looks at the emerging trends in federal concerns, examines the current thinking concerning teaching style and cognitive style, and discusses the implications of these matters for the state department of education. Five steps are suggested as a coping strategy: rebuild morale and desire in educators, deal with public dissatisfaction issue by issue, determine curricular weak points, combine inservice and dissemination strategies, and increase the interaction between the state department of education staff and dissemination personnel.
