Curriculum Materials Analysis System: Short Form. Revised Edition. SSEC Publication #145.
Knight, Merle M.; And Others
This shortened version of the Curriculum Materials Analysis System (CMAS) was designed to serve as a helpful tool for social studies educators involved in the selection of materials for classroom use. It can be used by participants in short workshops of a few hours to a day in length and by the busy administrator or teacher who does not have time for more in-depth examinations of curriculum materials. It contains the same eight sections as the long form of the CMAS: 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 analysis. Narrative and scaled questions are provided, both of which elicit information of the most important, yet general, nature. (RM)
