Title: CTR: PLANNING AND ASSESSING THE CURRICULUM IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
Description:
This book by Stephen Tchudi concerns processes for program development, and it strongly resists the notion that there is one single curriculum but rather focuses on philosophical and practical issues in program development. Part One provides the theoretical underpinnings for this approach to curriculum. It begins with a historical overview of the evolution of the English language arts program to help curriculum developers understand past traditions and assumptions. Then is described the origins of a "new English" that has been emerging and outlines what seems to be its most promising characteristics. Part Two presents curriculums and patterns of development. Here readers will find descriptions of a range of particular curriculum problems. Part Three, A Curriculum Developer's Handbook, gets down to the nut-and-bolts of curriculum engineering. 109 pages
