9780131112919: Curriculum: An Integrative Introduction (3rd Edition)

For undergraduate and graduate courses in Curriculum Development and/or Curriculum Planning. Defining curriculum broadly, as "what is taught in schools," this practical text arranges content around two major themes: 1) curriculum processes involve decision making by people who are guided by their beliefs and values about what students should learn; and, 2) curricular change occurs only after individuals have made internal transitions. Unlike its competition, this text painstakingly bridges curriculum theory to practice, exploring ways to develop curriculum, implement a curriculum plan, and assess a school's curriculum by applying chapter content to sample curriculum projects. Through accessible, jargon-free language and student-friendly pedagogy, the author shows both how practice informs theory and how use of theory helps educators engage in curriculum tasks appropriately.
