51 p. 

The booklet provides a framework to guide development of curriculum components of the Maine Studies Curriculum Project. Funded in 1976 by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in response to a section of Maine School Law, the project aims to develop and test a K-12 curriculum, accompanying instructional resources, and a teacher education program. Maine studies is defined as study of the state's social life, government, economy, technology, and environment from historical, current, and future perspectives. The guide contains 14 sections which discuss rationale and aspects of curriculum development. Two sections define the term curriculum, diagram the interrelationship among components of the Maine Studies Curriculum, and list curriculum elements. Another section identifies student goals in attitude and skill areas, as well as goals for the learning environment. Guiding theories of learning and instruction are summarized, and content elements are listed. These include cognitive understandings of themes and concepts, attitudes and values, and process skills. Concluding sections emphasize the importance of proper learning environment, relevant educational activities, and evaluation techniques. (Author/AV)
