From the Back Cover:

Join the discussion on curriculum

Is today s emphasis on measurable goals and accountability bringing equity and success in education?

Has research showing the importance of emotions in learning had any effect on the humanistic curriculum?

Why does the current academic curriculum focus on student inquiry and problem–based learning, rather than transmitting the best of what we know?

In a field as important and dynamic as curriculum development, there will always be questions. John McNeil s new Sixth Edition will equip you with the knowledge and practical skills you need to participate in the curriculum discussion, and construct and implement curriculum in the classroom.

Contemporary Curriculum in Thought and Action, Sixth Edition provides:

  • Practical tools for doing curriculum at all levels: policy, institutional, and classroom.
  • Multiple strategies for dealing with curriculum problems.
  • Skill–building tools for curriculum developers, such as how to determine goals and purposes, how to provide optimum learning opportunities, and how to organize for effective and continuous learning.
  • An insightful analysis of school reform, including the politics of curriculum making.
  • A balanced presentation of humanistic, social reconstructionist, systemic, and academic perspectives.
  • Key curriculum questions that provide an excellent basis for a master s thesis or doctoral dissertation.
