Summary

This general curriculum model for adult and continuing education courses offers theoretical and practical models that provide a framework within which adult educators can make informed decisions about curriculum planning. Chapter 1 introduces the general curriculum model and its various elements. The following five chapters describe and explain the five major elements in the model: rationale (sociocultural factors, psycho-philosophical factors), outside political forces (governmental and private agencies and interest groups), goals, instruction and content organization, and evaluation. Designed to assist those faced with building a curriculum in making the transition from a theoretical model to actual curriculum work, the concluding chapter of the book offers some ideas on the application of the general model and various elements for use by the practicing adult education curriculum worker.
