The Integration of Curriculum and Teacher Development (1890-1990): Roots and Rationale.
Neil, Roger
This paper considers how the metamorphosis of the curriculum movement from 1890-1990 relates to teacher education practices in the corresponding time period, with particular attention given to inservice teacher education. Part 1 briefly describes the history of curriculum change, part 2 highlights the history of inservice teacher education, and part 3 depicts how the two activities have met in the past. Lastly, part 4 considers the implications of current research and practice on curriculum and teacher development. It is concluded that six methods can be implemented to facilitate the integrated development of curriculum and inservice teacher education: reading circles, collegial supervision practices, classroom demonstrations and observations, workshops, action research, and teacher centers. Appended are extensive references and an historical overview of major changes in the meaning of curriculum. (CB)
