From the Back Cover:

Curriculum: Foundations, Principles, and Issues, 6/e presents a comprehensive, thoroughly balanced overview of the entire field of curriculum—principles, foundations, issues, and procedures for conceptualizing, developing, implementing, and evaluating curriculum. The authors use an approach that encourages readers to consider choices and formulate their own views on curriculum. As In previous editions, the text thoroughly explores the historical, philosophical, psychological, and social context for the field; addresses the curriculum process and issues that influence it; and encourages readers to consider how new thinking impacts curriculum deliberations, development, and implementation.

 

See clearly the meaning of the research and insights into the curriculum process through the text’s “Curriculum Tips.”

 

Become oriented to the main ideas at the beginning of each chapter through helpful Focusing Questions.

 

See how learning becomes more meaningful through overview tables and summaries of the major concepts and principles discussed in each chapter.
