Summary

The curriculum renewal movement has two interconnected goals--to empower both teachers and students and to move from a skills-based curriculum to a process-based one. With so much educational effort focusing on reading and writing, and with new information supporting holistic approaches coming from psycholinguistic and language arts studies, it should not be surprising that what promises to be a far-reaching curriculum reform is beginning in the language arts. At the center of expressive writing are two ideas: that the writing be meaningful to the writer and that it generally follow the steps in the writing process. As teachers earnestly seek to reform the schools, they sense the increasing need for and the benefits derived from opportunities to network on a whole range of issues. The computer can improve the ability of teachers to design, deliver, and disseminate curricula and to use networking to help share information about curriculum design. Too often in the past, staff development has been a "training" process in which teachers were conditioned to "use" or "deliver" a prescribed curriculum in prescribed ways. Staff development in schools devoted to restructuring education will provide teachers with time and expert support that will enable them to reflect upon and refine their curriculum while working in cooperative curriculum design groups. Combining networking, the writing process, and word processing with curriculum design holds promise that the curriculum renewal movement will achieve its two interconnected goals. (RS)
