Dow, Ian I.; And Others
This sequel to the study, "New Perspectives on Curriculum Implementation" (1981), was desgiend to ensure that curriculum planners have ready access to concrete planning strategies for effective curriculum implementation at the local level. In the first section, a review of the literature offers users' and organizations' perspectives on the complexity and problems of curriculum development. Survey procedures are briefly described, and data concerning teachers', principals', and consultant/coordinators' opinions about curriculum implementation problems are summarized. Recommendations, based on these problems, are presented. In the second section, an analysis is presented of the five major barriers--communication, role clarification, time, resource support, and information acquisition--to curriculum implementation that were identified in the orginal study. Suggestions for overcoming these barriers are described. The final section offers a case study applying the principles outlined in the previous sections. (JD)
