Practical tools for joining curriculum conversation
Curriculum is a field in continual flux, the result of an ongoing discussion among teachers approaching from a multitude of perspectives. Contemporary Curriculum: In Thought and Action, Seventh Edition offers the tools to participate in curriculum discussion and to construct and implement curriculum in the classroom.
The Seventh Edition provides you with practical tools for executing curriculum at all levels: policy, institutional, and classroom. You'll develop multiple strategies for dealing with curriculum problems, and build your skills in such areas as determining goals and purposes, providing optimum learning opportunities, and organizing for effective and continuous learning.
This text encourages online curriculum conversation among users and two-way communication between the author and readers. With an array of thoughtful new features and content, the Seventh Edition now:
* Profiles thinkers and resources who are energizing the field with "new departures" that deviate from the established views or prevailing thought discussed in each chapter
* Covers political ideologies, the conflicts over school subject matter, and data-driven decision making at state, district, school and classroom levels
* Examines the functioning of schools and media as democratic institutions and the relationship of citizens and the political system
* Discusses the impact of the privatization of schooling and the world-wide growth of the "Silent Curriculum"
With a balanced presentation of humanistic, social reconstructionist, systemic, and academic perspectives and fresh insights into key curriculum questions, Contemporary Curriculum: In Thought and Action, Seventh Edition comprises an excellent foundation for every educator from master's to doctoral level.
