Gifford, Charles S.; And Others
This publication provides a synthesis of contemporary issues and trends identified through a study of articles from selected professional journals. Part 1 presents a summary of historical issues providing a background for the curriculum of United States' schools prior to 1982. Part 2 discusses seven curriculum trends recognized in professional literature published between 1982 and 1987. These trend topics are educational leadership, teacher education, student-school relationships, evaluation and accountability, technological developments, curriculum development and change, and educational climate. For each topic, the book presents an overview, a set of synopses of representative journal articles and a list of suggested readings. The synopses of journal articles offer descriptions of situations and studies relevant to their topics. Appended are an epilogue and 10 references. (SI)
