Prerequisite: 60 units Calendar Description: Explorations of curriculum theory and processes of development with applications at different levels and in several subject areas. Course Details: When developing curriculum and curricula, choices and decisions are made about what knowledge should be taught and by extension, what gets excluded. These and other choices and decisions are influenced or guided by certain assumptions and beliefs that affect educational actors at different levels. This course aims at providing a broad perspective of curriculum by exploring different curriculum theories and also by critically considering the factors that influence curriculum decisions that affect teaching and learning in a pluralistic society. Some of the questions guiding these curricular explorations are: How does curriculum facilitate or hinder the achievement of social justice? How are the aims of education represented through curriculum development and practice? What assumptions are being made about students in relation to their interests, needs, expectations when making curricular decisions? Course Objectives This course is designed to provide opportunities for students to: Become actively involved in the ‘complicated conversation’ of curriculum theory and development. Analyze curricula using different theoretical frameworks. Articulate one’s own definition of ‘curriculum’ based on readings, discussions, and reflection. Practice designing curricula in ways that respond to the challenges and affordances that local situations present. Engage in reflection regarding one’s own approach to teaching and learning. Course Structure This course involves a combination of short lectures, small in-class group activities, student presentations, group work, individual reflections, and discussions of assigned readings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
