March 1948
Education Digest;Mar1947, Vol. 13 Issue 7, p52
The article presents a reprint of the article "A faculty participates in curriculum planning," by John Kinsella, which appeared in the October 1947 issue of the "Clearing House". In this article, the author focuses on the annual meeting of the faculty of the University School, Ohio State University to review the school's program and to plan the curriculum for the coming year. The usual reaction to these meetings has been that the time was too short for adequate consideration of the matters involved. Several steps have been adopted to expand the procedure. First, the curriculum committee interviewed members of the faculty informally to discover which aspects of the schools' program needed attention. After the interviews had been completed, the committee pooled all comments and classified them under each various question categories.
