The Story of the AERA Special Interest Group on Creation and Utilization of Curriculum Knowledge--1970-1984: Toward Excellence in Curriculum Inquiry.
Short, Edmund C.; And Others
The American Educational Research Association's (AERA) Special Interest Group (SIG) on "Creation and Utilization of Curriculum Knowledge" was formed in 1971 by researchers whose work focused upon the advancement of knowledge in curriculum. The interest area for this SIG centered on generic knowledge about: (1) curriculum definitions; (2) model programs; (3) curriculum designs; (4) the curriculum development process; (5) curriculum objectives; (6) criteria for curriculum content and methods of organization; (7) curriculum evaluation; and (8) other aspects of theoretical and practical import for the creation of improved educational programs. This monograph traces the history of this SIG from its inception in 1971 to the present. The first chapter, by Edmund C. Short, describes the beginnings of the SIG. In chapter two, by George H. Willis, the professional activities of the group are discussed. The third chapter, by William H. Schubert, is a chronicle of the scholarly contributions of the SIG, listing papers and symposia sponsored by the group at AERA annual meetings from October, 1971 through April 1984. Included in the appendixes are SIG newsletters from 1971 to 1984. (JD)
