Developing the Curriculum by Peter Oliva

The three models of curriculum development in the book are descriptive and prescriptive.

The Tyler Expanded Model uses three sources: student, society, and subject matter. The student source is for teachers to find and critique data relevant to student needs and interest.  The society source is for teachers to develop classifications that divide life into categories. The subject matter source is from the subject matter specialists.  After the research phase, you screen your general objects of Philosophy of Education and Psychology of learning to get your precise instructional objectives. After the objectives are decided, you need to select the learning experience, organize the learning experience, direct the learning experience and evaluate the learning experience.

The Taba Model has a five step sequence:

  1. Create learning units (linking theory and practice)
  2. Practice experimental units
  3. Revise and merge (considering students’ needs, resources and teaching style)
  4. determine a structure (write scope and sequence, including rationale)
  5. Introduce and implement the new units

The Oliva Model has 12 steps.

  1. Identify the aims of education and their philosophical and psychological principals
  2.  Analyze the needs of the community
  3. Specify curriculum goals
  4. Specify curriculum objectives
  5. Organize and implement the curriculum
  6. Specify instructional goals
  7. Specify instructional objectives
  8. Select Strategies
  9. Preliminary selection of evaluation
  10. Implementation of strategies
  11. Final selection of evaluation
  12. Evaluation of curriculum
