Summary

This booklet discusses some general ideas on and outlines a particular approach to the appraisal of "curriculum plans" (those documents dealing directly with the purposes and general organization of the school's program and with the purposes and methods of instruction and evaluation). A section on "Descriptive Analysis" presents a series of guidelines (questions indicating the kind of information to be obtained) for analyzing three basic categories of contents in curriculum documents: (1) decisions and recommendations, (2) justification for decisions, and (3) forms of presentation of decisions and recommendations. Separate guidelines are listed for the general (school, department) and specific (course, unit, daily activity) levels of planning. A section on the "Evaluative Approach" is a description of three sources of criteria for judging the quality of curriculum plans: (1) a view of curriculum planning as an organizational process; (2) a theory or point of view about learning and instruction; and (3) models or rationales which identify the types of curricular decisions, the relationships among these decisions, and the bases on which decisions should be made. Appended is an illustrative analysis of a sample document (included in the booklet), "A Study Guide for Teachers: Political Education for Fifth Grade--To be Included in the Study of U.S. History."
