Transcript of Four Models of Curriculum Development

Described as the 'grass roots' approach to developing curriculum
Believed that the curriculum should be designed by teachers who will eventually be using and teaching the curriculum rather than the district or state representatives who have no direct connection to the content.
Built units then grew to a general, overall, curriculum- starting small and growing to the big idea
Built on a 5 Step Approach:
Produce pilot units
Test experimental units
Revise and consolidate
Develop a framework
Install and disseminate new units
The Four Models of Curriculum Development
Samantha Laca

Pays special attention to the planning phases of curriculum development
It is a modified and condensed way of developing curriculum
Has a special way of selecting the Educational Objectives:
Objectives are gathered from 3 sources:
The learners-
based on needs and interests
Life outside of the school-
local and as a whole society
The Subject Matter-
including disciplines used
Objectives are then filtered through 2 screens:
The social and educational philosophies for the school
The psychology of learning
The Taba Model
The Olivia Model
Made of 12 Components:
State educational philosophy and psychological principles
Community and student needs
Specify curricular goals
Specify curricular objectives
Organize and implement curriculum
Instructional goals and objectives for each level
Instructional goals and objectives for each student
Choose instructional strategies
Measure student achievement
Student Learning
Evaluating Instruction
Evaluating curriculum as a whole
For our curriculum design project, we have decided to utilize the Saylor, Alexander, and Lewis model for curriculum deign. After reading the chapter and learning about the 4 main models for designing curriculum, we both agreed that the Saylor, Alexander, and Lewis model reflected many of our thoughts and beliefs when it comes to teaching and lesson planning. We really liked how this model is made of many smaller plans as opposed to one big document or curriculum. We also liked how the Saylor, Alexander, and Lewis model focused on for main domains and then incorporated them into the curriculum design.
The Tyler Model
Curriculum created by teachers,

for teachers
Made up of many smaller lessons for different sections of the curriculum
Started by specifying major educational goals and objectives they expect to accomplish
4 Domains where learning takes place:
Personal Development
Social Competence
Continued Learning Skills
Designing Curriculum:
Appropriate for each of the above domains
Each teacher designs their own instructional plan based off of the designed curriculum
Evaluated and edited if needed
The Saylor, Alexander, and Lewis Model
