Analyzing the curriculum
As a primary text, Analyzing the Curriculum provides the backbone for a basic curriculum course at either the senior or graduate level. The book shows how the parts of a curriculum fit together and how to identify assumptions underlying curricula. In doing so, students develop the ability to determine why a curriculum proves better for some students than for others; what approaches to teaching are compatible with a particular curriculum; what difficulties a curriculum is likely to encounter during implementation; and what kinds of changes in the curriculum parents, students, and administrators are likely to demand. These are valuable skills for evaluating, selecting and adapting existing programs to suit particular situations.
