Relevance and Curriculum: Making the Five R's Meaningful.
In response to increasingly vigorous and vocal criticism of American education, the author proposes a new model for curriculum development--a double triad that would combine the traditional cooperative efforts of administrators, teachers, and school board members with involvement of the community, parents, and students. The author suggests procedures for selection and involvement of community, parent, and student representatives on a community curriculum revision committee. In addition, he discusses the participation of teachers, the school board, and administrators. Guidelines for translating statements of philosophy and goals into performance objectives and for designing evaluation procedures are also included. (Author/WD)
