A Synthesized Curriculum for the 21st Century
A Synthesized Curriculum For the 21st Century introduces a new approach to education to coordinate with the direction of the next century, presenting a synthesized curriculum that draws together the traditional subject areas to introduce students to a coherent integration typical of the technology dominated environment of the twenty first century. It examines each traditional subject area as well as common reforms and curriculum integrations, along with present curricula from around the world to show what needs to be utilized from each. Finally, it presents a methodology for assessment as the end and not the base of instruction. Also, an approach planning for differences in students is provided so that students at all levels can achieve success.
