Overview

The Curriculum Studies Reader collects for the first time significant works by the leading scholars in the field. Beginning with the emergence of curriculum as a distinctive field of inquiry, it follows the main currents of thought through the turmoil of the

curriculum reform era and on to current trends. The editors have taken great care to select writings that reflect the diversity and scope of curriculum theory, research and practice, particularly contemporary issues such as multiculturalism, AIDS education, and national standards. This

collection provides a firm base from which to view the field and survey its future.
