Think about curriculum changes in your school or district:
Jot these thoughts down
The whole is greater than the part
Change is both inevitable and necessary, for it is through change that life forms grow and develop
School curriculum not only reflects,but is a product of its time
Curriculum changes made at an earlier period of time can exist concurrently with newer curriculum changes at a later period of time.
Curriculum change results from changes in people
Curriculum change is effected as a result of cooperative endeavor on the part of groups.
Curriculum development is basically a decision-making process.
Curriculum development is a never-ending process.
Curriculum development is a comprehensive process.
Systematic curriculum development is more effective than trial and error.
The curriculum planner starts from where the curriculum is, just as the teacher starts from where the students are.
