1. Keep the students up front in the planning process. Thes means taking into account concerns about:

  • Quality: promotion of student development intellectually psychologically, physically and socially
  • Equality: quality experiences for all students
  • Personalization: assignment programs to the specific set of individual differences represented in the student body
  • Relevancy: appropriate to the needs of the student society, and school purposes.

2. The organization of the curriculum should foster coordination and collaboration among teachers and media specialists toallow unified learning across specialization and grade level
