The Secondary School Curriculum: A Handbook for Administrators.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
Emphasizing the role of the school and the State Education Department in addressing students' needs, this handbook provides administrators planning secondary school programs with an outline of the New York State curriculum. An introduction describes general characteristics of secondary students and addresses the schools' responsibility to respond to students' needs with appropriate staff, resources, and programming. The Education Department's task in organizing a general program and the school-state relationship in curriculum development are examined, and state curriculum requirements and procedures for approval of local courses for state credit are reviewed. A chapter on general education constants and electives describes courses of study in terms of purpose, recommendations, and requirements. Sequences in the practical arts and occupational education are briefly described pending more complete formulation, and other curricular emphases and adaptations are discussed. References to materials for curriculum implementation are appended. (MJL)
