✏Analyzing the Curriculum Book Summary : 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.

It will be of particular use to people with an academic interest in this aspect of school management but will also be thought-provoking for those who are involved in the development of the curriculum within their institution' - escalate This book explores many of the new aspects of the core business of schools and colleges, that is, the curriculum. Keeping the focus clearly on learning and teaching, the contributors explore the practical issues for managers at institutional level, within the context of their need to understand and analyze key educational values and principles. Part One presents overviews of theories and models of curriculum, while Part Two examines how these are applied through planning, monitoring and evaluating. Part Three explores in detail the various managerial roles within schools and colleges from leaders to those responsible for cross-curriculum work and special educational needs. The fourth part discusses the importance of effectively managing resources for the curriculum - the environment, support staff and finance. Contributors use empirical research evidence to analyze current curriculum trends whilst proposing various new models which are likely to emerge in the 21st century.

✏Class Culture and the Curriculum Book Summary : It is often argued that education is concerned with the transmission of middle-class values and that this explains the relative educational failure of the working class. Consequently, distinctive culture needs a different kind of education. This volume examines this claim and the wider question of culture in British society. It analyses cultural differences from a social historical viewpoint and considers the views of those applying the sociology of knowledge to educational problems. The author recognizes the pervasive sub-cultural differences in British society but maintains that education should ideally transmit knowledge which is relatively class-free. Curriculum is defined as a selection from the culture of a society and this selection should be appropriate for all children. The proposed solution is a common culture curriculum and the author discusses three schools which are attempting to put the theory of such curriculum into practice. This study is an incisive analysis of the relationships between class, education and culture and also a clear exposition of the issues and pressures in developing a common culture curriculum.

✏Modern Languages Across the Curriculum Book Summary : As we enter the 21st century, questions of language and communications have never been more strongly posed. To celebrate the "century of langauge" this book deals with advances in modern languages teaching and learning across Europe. Individual chapters examine the developments in teaching methodologies over the past 100 years and the theoretical advances in our understanding of how languages are learned. The example of Communicative Language Teaching is used to illustrate the principles and purpose of learning a second language. The need for combining the content and form of language learning in a much more integrated fashion is set out; for example, teaching a curriculum subject through a foreign language. Individual national case studies show how these developments have been applied in a range of cultural contexts.

✏The curriculum experiment Book Summary : This book focuses on the interface between curriculum policy practice and social change in technology-driven advanced societies, and the challenges this presents for education in the 21st century. It begins with both an autobiographical account of the experience of curriculum change in England over the last 40 years and an analysis of a major issue which emerged during that period, namely, the teacher's role in curriculum development. It then moves on to look at what the author believes to be a current manifestation of contemporary curriculum policy and practice in England: student disaffection from schooling. It is argued that the now widespread phenomenon of disaffection can be explained by the failure of curriculum policy-making to respond to the complexity of social change in an advanced modern society. Drawing on the experience of attempts at radical innovation in the curriculum within the UK and other countries, the author develops a framework for curriculum policy making and development which he argues will enable education to meet the challenges of social change. In the process he undertakes a critique of the currently fashionable school effectiveness and improvement movements and argues that they are underpinned by outmoded views of the roles and functions of schools.
