Curriculum: Organizing Knowledge for the Classroom. Section 6

Curriculum: Organizing Knowledge for the Classroom. Section 6

Section 6 is a particularly useful springboard for constructing a module on curriculum because:

  • Knowledge, when all is said and done, is the central issue in curriculum. Teachers have to be able to organize knowledge.

  • Section 6 introduces theoretical tools for understanding curriculum concepts. These concepts are invaluable tools for practitioners’ use in understanding the formal curriculum, organizing their own learning programmes, and then analyzing their own practice. (Concepts covered include: competence curricula / performance curricula; subject (or disciplinary) curricula / integrated curricula; everyday knowledge / school knowledge.)
