The seventh edition of Curriculum Planning is a collection of readings that presents the knowledge, skills, and alternative strategies needed by curriculum planners and teachers at all levels of education, from early childhood through adulthood. The book offers a variety of learning experiences for students with wide-ranging interests, learning styles and backgrounds. Made up of ten chapters, the first six emphasize the development of knowledge and skills in the four bases of the curriculum - social forces, human development, learning, and knowledge and cognition. The last four chapters emphasize the application of curriculum planning skills for educational programs for children, early, middle, and late adolescents, and adult and senior learners. At all levels, current issues, innovations, and trends are examined from both theoretical and practical viewpoints. For anyone interested in curriculum development and planning.
