Overview

A highly regarded curriculum development text, now with a global approach and an increased focus on technology.

In this re-imagined eighth edition of the respected and seminal curriculum development textbook, seasoned authors Jon Wiles and Joseph Bondi consider the new global realities of the 21st Century by adding a unique global perspective to the process of curriculum development. Ten nations are analyzed and compared in order to better understand common threads and time-tested methods for curriculum development and management. With the aid of numerous features and activities, the text investigates curriculum development by examining value decisions made by leaders in defining education, giving readers the opportunity to learn to develop programs for a wide array of purposes.

In addition to its well-known and established focus on the historical and philosophical aspects of curriculum development, the revised eighth edition of Curriculum Development: A Guide To Practice also includes updated chapters on the impact of technology on curriculum work in schools as well as a new chapter on curriculum work in the classroom.
