Curriculum Materials Analysis System: Long Form. Revised Edition.
Knight, Merle M.; And Others
Social studies educators can use this long form of the Curriculum Materials Analysis System to analyze curriculum ideas and materials in breadth and depth. The form was revised using feedback from educators in workshops and conferences. Eight major sections deal with product characteristics; rationale and objectives; content; theory and strategies; antecedent conditions (i.e., conditions that must exist with respect to pupil, teacher, school, and community in order for the curriculum materials to be successfully implemented); evaluation; background of materials development; and background of the analysis. Each section contains both scaled and narrative questions. Some of the questions are descriptive and some evaluative. In each section, the first questions are intended to elicit information of the most important, yet general, nature within each section. As the analysis unfolds within each section, subordinate level questions elaborate on the questions asked at the first level. (RM)
