Curriculum : An Integrative Introduction
For a graduate level Curriculum Development or Curriculum Planning course (K-12).Written with a broad-based approach to curriculum, this text includes processes of curriculum development, use, and evaluation. Unlike competing texts, it bridges curriculum theory to practice by applying chapter content to the development of curriculum projects and to planning their use and evaluation. Two major themes of the book are 1) curriculum processes involve decision making by people who are guided by their beliefs and values about what students should learn and 2) curricular change occurs only after individuals have made internal transitions.
