Systems Philosophy, Curriculum Integration, and Units of Joy: Cultivating a New Paradigm for an Information-Intensive World.
Friedman, Madeleine
Middle School Journal, v25 n4 p11-14 Mar 1994
Teacher-directed content, immovable subject divisions, and rigid scope and sequences perpetuate mismatch between middle school curricula and young adolescents' needs. Teachers at one Florida middle school are experimenting with Coalition of Essential Schools processes such as backward curriculum design and units of joy. Curriculum becomes an open system based on wholeness, stability, creative adaptability, and existence within larger system. (MLH)
