Course Description

This course focuses on developing a knowledge base of historical and contemporary perspectives on curriculum and schooling as they evolved in American society. The first part of the course addresses three concepts as they relate to curriculum. They are: 1.) School, literacy and society. 2.) Movements in schooling and 3.) Dimensions of diversity. The second part of the course addresses an examination of conflicting views on selected issues, identifying related underlying problems, and then developing feasible resolutions. The assignments consist of textbook and library readings as well as the writing of 5 reflection papers during the 10 week course. Students' final work will be submitted in a portfolio at the end of the semester for faculty evaluation and grading.
