Evaluation, Curriculum Renewal, and Teacher Development. Australian Language Levels Guidelines. Book 4.
Scarino, Angela; And Others
The Australian Language Levels (ALL) Project offers a coherent model for elementary and secondary language curriculum design. Book 4 of the four-volume series discusses aspects of curriculum change and inservice teacher education, emphasizing the fact that curriculum and staff development are ongoing processes. A section on implementing curriculum change looks at trends and directions in curriculum development, the concept of curriculum renewal, and the teacher's role in that process. A discussion of evaluation as it relates to curriculum renewal focuses on the purposes and processes of curriculum evaluation and the use of the ALL guidelines to that end. Principles guiding and conditions promoting teacher education are examined, and general and specific issues in the planning of inservice teacher education programs are outlined. Coordination of inservice activities is also addressed. Appended materials include forms for syllabus and program evaluation, evaluation of the teaching/learning approach according to the eight principles of language learning outlined in Book 1, evaluation of resources, and evaluation of the student assessment process and method. A glossary of terms used in all four volumes of the series is included. Contains 1 reference. (MSE)
