'This book will be of interest to educational practitioners, and many other professionals concerned with the education and development of the young' - ESCalate
The book provides many perspectives on the evolution of curriculum design and purpose. It is likely become a recommended text for one of our newly revalidated modules on the curriculum.
A detailed and well written description of current theories of curriculum. An essential introduction to the topic for both ITT and Education Studies courses.
A challenging and comprehensive guide to the curriculum which is a must for anyone interested in the construction, and corruption of the curriculum.
This book has been a core text in a new module on Advanced Pedagogies.
A useful text for assisting with understanding curriculum in a wider context. The book makes you consider the theory behind the curriculum and its principles.
I believe that anyone who would like to have an overview of Curriculum must have this one.
A useful supplementary text to support curriculum studies.
Excellent resources. Highly recommended.
This book has brilliant information on theories and ideologies of curriculum as well as good information on evaluation curriculum.
Easily the most enjoyable read I've had concerning the area of curriculum theory.
Very well set out book with dedicated chapters that are relevant to the course. It does not pontificate but is direct.
This book helps trainees to consider the philosophies that underpin and shape the curriculum. It helps them to move beyond a technical approach and consider their own role in curriculum.
A most valuable resource. Succinct and readable
I ordered this book as my second year students need to produce a programme of activities and as a new teacher I thought it would be a useful book for both them and myself and that it was. It was a nice easy to read book and the students found it very helpful. It is a book that I will use for along time.
Excellent resource for the assignment on Curriculum Development for Cert Ed/PGCE trainees.
I used this as recommended reading for my first year Curriculum Design module this year and which is a compulsory module on our BSc Education programme. However, students did report that they found it rather ‘heavy going', particulary in comparison to some of the other reading they undertook for this module and hence perhaps this is not quite the right level of text for first year undergraduate students.
very comprehensive overview of curriculum devlopmnets and theory.Will bre used a recommended book on student reading list.Like the easily read style of the book
The book has a very difficult language for undergraduate students, that's why I do not recommend this book for my students who take the course "Curriculum Development".
Clear and concise text, good overview of the curriculum essential read for students.
