Overview

As a primary text,Analyzing the Curriculum provides the backbone for a basic curriculum course at either the senior or graduate level. The book shows how the parts of a curriculum fit together and how to identify assumptions underlying curricula. In doing so,students develop the ability to determine why a curriculum proves better for some students than for others; what approaches to teaching are compatible with a particular curriculum; what difficulties a curriculum is likely to encounter during implementation; and what kinds of changes in the curriculum parents,students,and administrators are likely to demand. These are valuable skills for evaluating,selecting and adapting existing programs to suit particular situations.
