Fill in the table by describing the role and influence each group has on curriculum. Some may have direct influence and some may have indirect influence. Identify whether their influence deals with selecting, maintaining, or evaluating the curriculum and in what ways they participate in that proces
Federal Government = The federal government passes federal legislations, such as the No Child Left Behind Act, to which schools must measure up. NCLB mandates can directly influence the curriculum in schools. They mostly influence the selection of curriculum.
State = ?
District = ?
school = ?
teacher = ?
Community = ?
That's a good start with Federal Government although you'd need to explain how NCLB regulations "directly influence the curriculum in schools." Keep going with the others and then repost. Someone here will be able to comment on your ideas.
Don't forget the influence the federal and state governments have on budgets. Both supply money with "strings" attached. Those strings greatly influence subsequent actions. "Strings" attached to Chapter I, or Title VIII, or Special Ed, or 504 exemptions are great examples. Strings include racial balances and measures, and often include process, selection, and measuring standards.
Be sure you're paying attention to what Bobpursley has written. The NCLB regulations are not the only laws that the feds have passed that affect education, even though education is not in the Constitution or Amendments. Bobpursley has listed other federal laws that affect schools.
do you know any websites I ccan use
At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.
My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.
