The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction

Other Titles in:
Curriculum & Content | Education

July 2012 | 624 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction emerges from a concept of curriculum and instruction as a diverse landscape defined and bounded by schools, school boards and their communities, policy, teacher education, and academic research.

Each contributing author was asked to comprehensively review the research literature in their assigned topic. These topics, however, are defined by practical places on the landscape e.g. schools and governmental policies for schools.

Key Features:

o Presents a different vision or reconceptualization of the field

o Provides a comprehensive and inclusive set of authors, ideas, and topics

o Takes a global rather than North American parochial approach

o Recognizes that curriculum and instruction is broader in scope than is suggested by university research and theory

o Reflects post-1992 changes in curriculum policy, practice and scholarship

o Represents a rethinking of how school subject matter areas are treated.

Teacher education is included in the Handbook with the intent of addressing the role and place of teacher education in bridging state and national curriculum policies and curriculum as enacted in classrooms.
