              Originally published in 1972. This is a practical and comprehensive guide to planning and developing a curriculum which will give both professional and prospective teachers a clearer insight into this vital part of the teacher's role. The study of objectives, selection and organi...sation of content and methods, evaluation, the total situation, various settings for curriculum development and the advantages of co-operative curriculum planning are among the aspects considered but they are always linked to the school and classroom situation with frequent examples of curriculum development based on the principles outlined. The authors' wide experience of helping teachers plan their own curriculum and their first-hand experience of curriculum development projects makes them well placed to understand the problems confronting the teacher.

              Creative Teaching: An Approach to the Achievement of Educational Objectives

              Creative Teaching: An Approach to the Achievement of Educational Objectives (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In their highly successful practical guide, Developing a Curriculum, Howard and Audrey Nicholls provided a basic guide to curriculum planning for both practising and prospective teachers. In this second volume, originally published in 1975, some of the ideas outlined there at an ...elementary level are developed, with the aim of encouraging and guiding the development of `custom built' curricula. Grasping the fundamental ideas and concepts of curriculum development is one problem for teachers, translating them into practice is another, and this book will go a long way to solving both problems. The development of justifiable and purposeful curricula for the particular pupils he is teaching is a primary task for any teacher, as is the modification of these curricula as circumstances and ideas change and the teacher forms his assessment of pupils' needs and progress. The theoretical background to be taken into account when arriving at general curricular decisions is considered throughout, and groups, aids, organisation, records and assessment are all treated as essential items for the curriculum planner. Nor is the final problem, which the theorists often neglect, forgotten, namely that of implementing modifications or innovations once the curriculum has been created.

              Managing Educational Innovations

              Managing Educational Innovations (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Originally published in 1983. This book deals with theories of innovation and activities of innovating and the relationships between them, and will help to clarify some of the underlying theories and enable practitioners to make a more professional response to the demands and pre...ssures for innovation. The book analyses some case studies of educational innovations carried out on both sides of the Atlantic and suggests what lessons might be learned from them. It stresses the importance of the active involvement of teachers in the decision-making process and emphasises the importance of a rigorous and broadly based evaluation of innovation. The controversial issue of the use of external consultants in schools is discussed. Written in a clear style, free from jargon, theories are not discussed in isolation or for their own sake, but are applied and related to educational practice.
