Slide 18:Two Schools of Thought on Curriculum Development

Slide 19:Two Schools of Thought on Curriculum Development Two schools of thought predominated throughout the history of curriculum development; the essentialist school the progressive school

Slide 20:The Essentialist School It considers the curriculum as something rigid consisting of discipline subjects. It considers all learners as much as the same and it aims to fit the learner into the existing social order and thereby maintain the status quo. Its major motivation is discipline and considers freedom as an outcome and not means of education.

Slide 21:The Essentialist School Its approach is authoritative and the teachers role is to assign lessons and recite recitations. It is book-centered and the methods recommended are memory work, mastery of facts and skills, and development of abstract intelligence.

Slide 22:The Essentialist School It has no interest in social action and life activities. Its measurement of outcomes are standard tests based on subject matter mastery.

Slide 23:The Progressive School It conceives of the curriculum as something flexible based on areas of interest. It is learner-centered, having in mind that no two persons are alike. Its factor of motivation is individual achievement believing that persons are naturally good.

Slide 24:The Progressive School The role of the teacher is to stimulate direct learning process. It uses a life experience approach to fit the student for future social action.

Slide 25:The Progressive School Constant revision of aims and experimental techniques of learning and teaching are imperatives in curriculum development in order to create independent thinking, initiative, self-reliance, individuality, self-expression and activity in the learner.

Slide 26:The Progressive School Its measurements of outcome are now devices taking into consideration subject matter and personality values.

Slide 27:Different Theories Conflicting philosophies of education have influenced curriculum principles and practices. A number of self-evident educational truths in the past are now seen to be rather educational myths, such as: teachers know, children or learners dont; all learners should be treated alike.

Slide 28:Different Theories The fundamental concepts of some curricula have changed. In many areas, new methodologist programmed instruction, computer-assisted instruction, tutorials, large-and-

small-group instruction, and a variety of individualized instruction procedures have been developed.

Slide 29:Different Emphasis There is the curricular emphasis upon subject matter for the mind, with priority in value to literature, intellectual history, ideas of religion, philosophy, studies. There is the curricular emphasis on observable fact, the world of things.

Slide 30:Different Emphasis Another curricular emphasis is the school which defends its purpose through the tenets of scholasticism. A curricular emphasis that is worth mentioning is that school which stresses the importance of experience-process.

Slide 31:Different Emphasis A recent curricular emphasis is that of existing choice. The learner must learn skills, acquire knowledge, and make decisions.
