The Hidden Curriculum. National Business Education Yearbook, No. 30.
Burford, Anna M., Ed.; Arnold, Vivian, Ed.
This yearbook contains 19 papers (selected by referees) that concentrate on the "hidden curriculum"--integrated topics often taught or needing emphasis, but having limited coverage in classroom textbooks. The book is organized in three parts. Part I calls attention to the subject of excellence versus mediocrity, introduces the reader to current trends in the work force, and describes the role of the educator as a facilitator of the hidden curriculum. Paper titles and authors are as follows: "The Hidden Curriculum: An Opportunity: (Burford, Arnold); "Defining the Work Force of the 1990s: Implications for Curriculum Development and Instructional Practice" (Haynes); and "The Teacher as Facilitator of the Hidden Curriculum" (O'Neil, Schmidt). Part II concentrates on a range of content areas and presents strategies for learning, reinforcing, and evaluating curricula, in the following papers: "Hidden Agendas for Reading Skills" (Olsen); "Hidden Agendas for Proofreading Skills" (Joyner); "Hidden Agendas for the Basic Business Subjects" (Echternacht); "The Hidden Agenda for Communication" (Brewer, Bloom); "Listening: A Partner for Career Enhancement and Establishment" (Bennington); "Evaluation: A Tool for Learning and Identifying Talent" (Kleen); "Characteristics of Learning and Associated Outcomes" (Drennan, Sawyer); "Active Learning through Structured Grouping in the Classroom" (Miller, Monthei); "Lifelong Learning" (Cochrane); "The Need to Incorporate the Work Ethic and Ethics into Business Education Curricula" (Wayne, Chapman); "Social and Personality Development" (Prigge, Ray); and "Education for Employment" (Sink, Dugal). Part III reviews selected features of the hidden curriculum and presents strategies for using telecommunication, youth organizations, and work partnerships to improve business education. Papers are as follows: "Teaching the Hidden Curriculum in Technology Courses" (Clark, Winzurk); "Youth Organizations and Their Role in Enhancing Elements of the Hidden Curriculum" (Newton); "Education and Work Partnerships" (Zahn, Poole); and "Networking Telecommunications into the Business Curriculum: Activities and Student Objectives" (Labonty, Jimeno).
