EDL 7703 Curriculum Theory and Practice

Through a study of curriculum theory that includes the writings of John Dewey, Jerome Bruner and others, and planning structures such as those proposed by Ralph Tyler, and Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, students will conceptualize their own philosophy of curriculum and juxtapose it with the enacted curriculum of their organization. They will study and propose resolutions to real curriculum problems and apply a model of planning to their own problem of practice in the context of curriculum theory.
