              Originally published in 1974. This book presents research into the planning and implementation of the Keele Integrated Studies Project. From 1969 to 1972 the work of the project team was investigated through observation, questionnaire and interview to obtain a picture of the way ...decisions about curriculum innovation are made and of how these decisions are executed in schools. The book is mainly the outsider's view, but the Project Director and the Assistant Director have contributed chapters and comments by members of the project team are also included. Three aspects of the curriculum project are covered: the interaction between project team, trial schools, university, local authority and Schools Council; the relations within the project team, within the trial schools, and between the curriculum innovators and the classroom teachers; and the impact of the project after the finish of the trial in the schools. The final chapters include conclusions on the process of curriculum change and on the education system in which it occurs. The problems of reconciling the different perspectives and interests of all the parties involved are examined in detail, showing that negotiation, adaptation and compromise are at the heart of curriculum change.

The rehabilitation of historical studies has challenged mainstream psychological and philosophical theories of curriculum and it argues for a reformulation o...f the current dominance of scientific management models of curriculum changes. This book presents comparative data from a range of countries which help define the methodologies employed in curriculum history. It also explores some of the major curriculum issues uncovered in historical studies.

              First published in 2000, this volume is taking stock of equality issues in higher education as we move into the new millennium. It is clear that many positive developments in the 1970s and 1980s have been lost. However, the way forward is not just to reinstate these developments.... This book focuses on a number of challenges, including bringing equality issues from the periphery to the centre of education, seeking an overarching framework such as human rights to ensure that equality is interpreted in a more comprehensive and systematic way, including every individual in the deliberations about equality, and accepting that an acknowledgement of the 'needs' of specific groups of students has to be paralleled with educating everyone about their responsibilities in relation to the causes and consequences of inequality. Fifteen educationalists, from a number of higher education institutions, have analyzed their particular area of work in equality, providing the clear message that in the new millennium equality must become truly embedded in real education.

              Originally published in 1972. This is a practical and comprehensive guide to planning and developing a curriculum which will give both professional and prospective teachers a clearer insight into this vital part of the teacher's role. The study of objectives, selection and organi...sation of content and methods, evaluation, the total situation, various settings for curriculum development and the advantages of co-operative curriculum planning are among the aspects considered but they are always linked to the school and classroom situation with frequent examples of curriculum development based on the principles outlined. The authors' wide experience of helping teachers plan their own curriculum and their first-hand experience of curriculum development projects makes them well placed to understand the problems confronting the teacher.

              Originally published in 1983. Written by an experienced headteacher and curriculum consultant, this book was written to help schools with the task of planning their whole curriculum - teachers, governors, administrators and students. It provides information on national educationa...l policies of the time, approaches to curriculum planning, and the structures of actual schools. The Department of Education and Science had just issued Circular 6 of 1981, which called upon education authorities, governing bodies, heads and the staffs of schools 'to secure a planned and coherent curriculum within the schools'. The book describes the background to this development; spells out the tasks involved; provides a series of exercises for planning and discussion; and offers ideas, questions and methods. It recognises the diversity of school circumstances, and talks about the vital transition from theory to practice.

              Originally published in 1983 and as a second edition in 1988. An attempt is made in this book to disentangle some of the professional, ethical, political, theoretical and practical issues involved in curriculum evaluation. This book present evidence concerning a number of evaluat...ion strategies and techniques, drawing on experience in several countries, including the UK, Australia and the US, to debate the potential of insider and outsider approaches to evaluation, and combinations of the two. It also offers a practical source book for those wishing to plan and conduct curriculum evaluations. Finally, it considers the crucial question of how evaluation can influence curriculum action and, thereby, teaching and learning.

Duncan Graham was the man charged with introducing the new-style lessons into the 24,000 state schools in England and Wales from 1988 to 1991 when he resigned as Chairman and Chief Executive of the National Curriculum Council after deep divisions over principles with Kenneth Clarke, the Education Secretary. In collaboration with David Tytler, former Education Editor of The Times , Mr Graham tells of the struggles with ministers, civil servants and the teacher unions to introduce the new style lessons to a tight timetable set by the Government.
