A comprehensive, thoroughly documented, balanced overview of the foundations, principles, and issues of curriculum

 

While many texts focus on either theory or practice, or advance a particular political or social position, or approach the field of curriculum as an administrative challenge, this authoritative text provides readers with a balanced, comprehensive view of the entire field of curriculum. Through this approach the authors encourage readers to consider choices and formulate their own views on curriculum foundations, principles, and issues. 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.
