Curriculum Improvement : Decision Making and Process - 9th edition

Curriculum Improvement : Decision Making and Process (ISBN10: 0205164579; ISBN13: 9780205164578)
ISBN13: 978-0205164578
ISBN10: 0205164579

Summary: The Ninth Edition of Curriculum Improvement is comprehensive, unique, practical, and thought-provoking. Despite the problems it cites, the book offers a message of hope -- that schools can help to solve society's problems by impressing upon children and youth that they can achieve and succeed if they act in doing what they know to be right and productive.

Since its initial publication, this text has been enormously popular. It relies not only on the
distinguished research of theorists such as Havighurst, Piaget, and Tyler for hard data in curriculum foundations, but also on curriculum practice in schools, in which the author has been a major participant as a curriculum coordinator and specialist in various fields. The author has continued in this tradition of integrating theory into practice by concentrating each revised edition on new developments in curriculum inquiry and practice. Many students have noted that in the revisions, the author reports real experiences in which he has often had a part.

Features:
  • Theory, concepts, prominent ideas in the curriculum field. Development of knowledge and understanding in curriculum design and program evaluation.
  • Emphasis on the important elements of "how" to achieve results, not just the "why" and "what" behind them. Invites students to plan their own strategies for improvement.
  • Emphasis on "roles:" roles of classroom teachers, principals, parents, chairpersons.

New To This Edition:
  • Explanations of authentic learning and new views of intelligence.
  • Development of systemic reform.
  • Strategic planning for students.
  • Discussion of Outcome-Based Education.
  • Realignment of roles and the involvement of federal government within recent years.
  • Discussion of the effects of communication innovations such as the information superhighway, the Internet, and new technology.
  • Information on transformational leadership.
