Building a Learning-Centered Curriculum for Learner-Centered Schools. Interim Report of the New York State Curriculum and Assessments Council to the Commissioner and the Regents.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The Council for Curriculum and Learning was appointed to develop a plan for implementing the promises of the New Compact for Learning of New York State. This document considers the roles of the Council and state and local districts in working toward New Compact ideas. The New Compact requires a new vision of curriculum, instruction, and assessment that will help schools focus on the development of a greater range of student talents at a higher level of performance for all. The state will develop curriculum frameworks. Learning goals are to be monitored through state program assessments and local student assessments. A unitary Regents' diploma system, supported by a Regents' portfolio, will be developed. Working in consort, the state and local authorities will promote equal access to education and educational equity for all students. The Council will provide advice regarding outcome standards, curriculum frameworks, assessment, staff development, and program implementation. Council recommendations will be implemented in congruence with other parts of the New Compact. Three appendixes contain assessment principles, a description of curriculum and assessment committees, and the Regents' goals for education. (SLD)
