The Curriculum Studies Reader
Flinders, David J. Thornton, Stephen J.
For fifteen years, The Curriculum Studies Reader has been a field-defining anthology, bringing together the best scholarship from curriculum studies past and present. From John Deweys nineteenth-century creed to Nel Noddings twenty-first century aims, this thoughtful combination of new and timely essays provides a complete survey of the discipline coupled with concrete examples of innovative curriculum and an examination of contemporary topics. New to this much-anticipated fourth edition are substantive updates to the selections of contemporary readings, including pieces by Thomas Misco and Peter Hlebowitsh, reflecting issues such as globalization and the reconciliation between reconceptualists and traditionalists in regard to curriculum. Carefully balanced to engage with the history of curriculum studies while simultaneously looking ahead to its future, The Curriculum Studies Reader continues to be the most authoritative collection in the field.
