Revitalizing the Disciplines. The Best of ASCD's "Curriculum Update".
O'Neil, John, Ed.; Willis, Scott, Ed.
Since the 1980s, several major trends have impelled educators to make especially significant changes to the K-12 curriculum in the various subject areas. Calls to provide students with "authentic" and interdisciplinary learning experiences, upgrade standards, and help all students achieve at a high level are affecting curriculum content and organization. The articles in this book were originally published in "Curriculum Update," a quarterly newsletter of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, and are directed at a broad audience of educators. The articles provide background information and practical ideas for pursuing the elusive goal of a "state-of-the-art" curriculum. Contents have been arranged according to seven subject areas: language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, world languages, and health and physical education. (MLH)
