Overview

The revised Fifth Edition of Curriculum and Aims provides a broad perspective on the basic curriculum questions educators face regarding the purposes, content, design, and structure of educational programs. After examining aims that have been proposed by classical educational thinkers and reviewing the dominant educational debate of the 20th century between traditionalists and progressives, authors Decker F. Walker and Jonas F. Soltis deal with fundamental contemporary issues of curriculum theory and instructional practice.

As in the other volumes in the Thinking About Education Series, this new edition provides realistic case studies that inspire preserve teachers to grapple with the issues of curriculum and aims in the context of classroom situations. The Fifth Edition features a new case on Education and Equity: Closing the Achievement Gap and includes updated references to important recent ideas in a new section at the end of each chapter called For Further Inquiry.
