"Over the past two decades, concerned people in local schools have expanded considerable energy and resources aimed at making schools better." (Parish and Arends, 1983) Efforts to improve teaching require change and change is a process that takes time and is generally achieved in stages. Schools are in a constant state of change. Staffs are striving to provide curriculum to students with quality instruction. As research and theories of curriculum (what to teach) and instruction (how to teach) are articulated and studied local programs change to meet the emerging data.
