Overview

JCT was the most important journal of curriculum studies during the field’s "paradigm" shift in the 1970s. Its editors sponsored a yearly conference, which also supported the "intellectual breakthrough" that was the reconceptualization of American curriculum studies. This collection brings together "the best" of JCT articles, plus key documentary material of importance to scholars and students alike. Undergraduate and graduate students in curriculum, instruction, and foundations would find this book useful and insightful.

"This is a celebration and a farewell. Twenty years have passed since JCT and its conference appeared on the scene: twenty years of innovative and provocative articles, essays, several book-length pieces, and many remarkable conference presentations. I have used the term ‘reconceptualization’ to describe what occurred in the field during the 1970s, but the term is not dramatic enough to express the role that JCT and the Bergamo Conference have played. Perhaps ‘intellectual breakthrough’ is more descriptive. You will, I think, agree with my choice of phrases once you've moved through this remarkable collection. Let us celebrate what is truly a collective achievement."
