Abstract—In-service and pre-service teachers in Japan are required to promote effective curriculum management at each school in order to develop effective school curricula. This study purposed to promote in-service teachers’ understanding and skills of curriculum management, and to evaluate in-service teachers’ attitude toward curriculum management. Participants were 54 elementary and secondary school teachers working in educational institutes. All of the participants took part in “Media Specialists Training Course” which was held by the MEXT. Results of the study indicate that participants who took part in the “Media Specialists Training Course” enhanced their understanding and skills in curriculum managements through lectures on curriculum management and developing curricula using the “Curriculum Standards” (χ2 (1) = 40.71, p < .01). Results also suggest that participants realized the significance of developing curricula that suit trainees’ or students’ needs, they noticed that it is important for school teachers to promote their understanding and skills for curriculum management, and they gained willingness to develop teacher training curricula.
