by Geva M. Blenkin Gwyn Edwards Albert Victor Kelly, Change And The Curriculum Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Change And The Curriculum book, Through the work of the Schools Council and other national agencies, the difficulties of achieving effective curriculum change through centralized initiatives and directives have been well documented. At the same time the importance of teacher involvement in such activities, and the advantages of curriculum development over revolutionary innovation, have become plain. This knowledge and the understandings it has generated are important today, when unusually sweeping changes are being brought about in the school curriculum. The authors of this book draw together these ideas to assist people promoting curriculum changes, as well as those on the receiving end of such projects.

by Albert Victor Kelly, The National Curriculum Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The National Curriculum book, Anyone looking for a clear account of several of the arguments against The National Curriculum would find Vic Kelly's The National Curriculum just such a book' - "Ted Wragg " 'This book represents the most sustained critique of The National Curriculum I have seen' -"British Journal of Curriculum and Assessment " A National Curriculum is now being taught in all maintained schools and an associated programme for the testing of all pupils at key stages of The National Curriculum is in place. The full impact of this new curriculum and other associated changes will not be known until the full programme has been completed in the year 2000.A V Kelly evaluates such issues as its underlying assumptions, its basic value system, its conceptual structure and the degree to which it reflects (or not) understandings of the educational process gleaned from earlier research studies.
by Wanying Wang, The Yuanpei Program In Peking University Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Yuanpei Program In Peking University book, The Yuanpei program is an institution wide curriculum innovation, modeling on the core curriculum in Harvard which is committed to carrying out general education. This research investigated the major conflicts that arose in the process of initiation and implementation of the Yuanpei program, how these conflicts evolved during the process, and what were the sources of these conflicts. The conflict model, primarily derived from conflict theory, was adopted to interpret and analyze the process of curriculum innovation in this context. The study employed a qualitative case study approach. Data were collected primarily through interviews, observations and document analysis. The administrators, teachers and students were interviewed to gain insight into major conflicts arose, their processes and sources in process of the curriculum innovation. The researcher primarily observed program practices and operations, including program setting, the human, social environment (how participants interact and communicate), and program activities and participant behaviors. The researcher distinguished between conceptual conflicts and practical conflict in light of the different stages in which conflicts emerged. The researcher mainly identified three conceptual conflicts that represent the focus of debates: first, the two opposing opinions on how to balance between general education and specialized education; second, potential incongruence in the idea of the Yuanpei program; third, conflict between the changing need of society and traditional system of training. The researcher summarized four categories of practical conflicts in light of various issues: free-course selection, free-major selection, faculty advisor as well as general education elective courses, in each of which sub-themes were identified and analyzed. The researcher described how both conceptual and practical conflicts evolved. Each major conceptual conflict seems to go through similar stages based on the data, involving issue, confrontation and integration of claims of both sides. For practical conflicts, factors contributing to the escalation and de-escalation, moderation of conflicts were found by the researcher. The research identified different roles, incompatible values, contested resources and structural constraints as the main sources of conflict. Any conflict may involve more than one category or may be mainly due to one category. As such, the study is exploratory and contributes to the scholarship on educational change through its analysis of the curriculum innovation for general education in Peking University.
