Expansion of the Concept of Scope and Sequence in Curriculum Development.
Boyles, Lyle E.
The purpose of this paper is to define a rationale for use in the refinements of daily curriculum operations in a school district, and establish a general understanding about policy and non-policy matters in curriculum. It is concluded that the area of curriculum should be guided by written policies which demonstrate that appropriate attention has been given to the articulation tasks. Such written positions should contain a shared set of beliefs that illustrate the commitment of faculty, administrators, boardmembers, parents, amd citizens alike to the learners in the local process called education. In addition, the day-to-day assuring activities so vital in the observations about the effect of the educational program should be developed by the principal and faculty along with the parents of each school. The major nature of these activities should be primarily determined by the content of professional statements collectively stemming from the faculty of each school. A 12-item bibliography and an appendix discussing district-wide subject matter study committees and coordinators are provided. (DCS)
