Anderson, Stephen A.; And Others
This document contains collected materials and guidelines developed by the Yale Public Schools in Yale, Michigan, in an effort to standardize the process of writing and reviewing curricula. The document is based on the notions that the written curriculum should also be the taught curriculum, that the taught curriculum should also be the tested curriculum, and that teachers should teach to the test. A brief introduction and statement of philosophy are followed by sections concerning: (1) principles of curriculum articulation; (2) the scope and sequence of concepts; (3) course descriptions; (4) procedures for the approval of course descriptions; (5) contents of unit plans; (6) details of the curriculum review process; (7) criteria for analyzing curricula; and (8) the composition, aims, resources, and procedures of subject area committees. Appendices provide lists of resources, teaching techniques, evaluation procedures, process skills related to learning, and action verbs. Sample forms related to several sections of the document are provided. (RH)
