This comprehensive book explores the day-to-day problems school teachers and administrators encounter in the area of curriculum, instruction and evaluation. Developing curriculum is a political as well as an educational activity and practitioners should be aware of hidden' political realities and value systems at work in their schools. In this book, the author proposes that there are three forms of curricula: formal, informal and hidden, with manifestations of these forms in the written, taught and tested curricula. English shows how these elements are brought together in developing curriculum.

Review:

"First published in 1992 and now released as the millennium edition, this book is 'for school administrators and teachers who want fast, accurate, and easy-to-use answers' to curriculum questions. It would also be an excellent text for teacher education students just beginning to study curriculum."

(B. L. Nourie, Illinois State University CHOICE, 2000)
