Student Participation and Curriculum Planning A Practice of Student and Teacher Co-operation
This study is an investigation into a new cooperative approach to curriculum planning which involoves teacher and student participation. The students go through a simulation process of syllabus planning in which they devise their own learning programme. The results show that given the freedom and appropriate encouragement, the students are able to construct and organize the actual subject content and activities of a learning programme. It is shown that the success of this approach is largely determined by the maturity and enthusiasm of the students and by the aims of the learning programme. The results also support the notion that students can play a positive role in curriculum planning.
