Instructional Materials and Framework Adoption: Policies and Procedures.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Curriculum Framework and Textbook Development Unit.
This document describes in detail the processes by which curriculum frameworks are developed and instructional materials are evaluated and recommended for adoption at the state level in California. The document is organized around two major processes--the process of curriculum framework development at the state level and the process for the state-level adoption of instructional materials. First, the major principles and objectives of both of these processes are reviewed. Then the specific phases and components of each of the processes are detailed. Each of these distinct yet interrelated components has its own timeline, its major participants, and goals and objectives that contribute to the overall effective development of the curriculum, as reflected in the frameworks, and to the adoption of appropriate instructional materials. The document describes how these two important aspects of curriculum development operate together. (JD)
