Using Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM) procedures, the author studied the implementation of a new geography curriculum m public and private secondary schools in one Australian state. The results indicated that the majority of geography teachers had attained "routine"levels of use but that few were mvolved in collaborating with others or experimenting with alternatrves to produce more effective levels of implementation. The data highlight the need for carefully differentiated staff development programs.
