Summary

This paper presents a model of the curriculum development process that reflects curriculum project practices. Regularities found in the data from one case study were checked against reports of other project practices, and those regularities common to all the projects studied served as the model foundation. The model asserts that a curriculum project functions mainly to transform an initially vague, unsystematic, but strongly held vision of the educationally desirable into a concrete educational program. This transformation is accomplished first by attaining agreement on a platform -- a body of shared beliefs about curriculum. Then, using this platform, the project staff develops a plan of work, the completion of which requires discussion, debate, argument, or deliberation on crucial issues, and finally, the production of curriculum materials.
