A curriculum component containing the instructional materials has been developed for each content area. It was not intended that the components prepared by the Curriculum Development Centers be used in their entirety as courses in the community colleges. Courses will usually include additional elements such as class discussion, examinations, guest speakers, even student internships, that are not included in the curriculum components. Rather, the curriculum components are intended as a resource, an "educational buffet," available to support the Community College Consortia member colleges and other institutions of higher education in implementing the curricula that the colleges themselves design. Therefore, instructors should choose, at the component level or at the unit level within components, those elements of the curriculum materials that best fit their needs as they design their programs.
