              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 1989. What should be taught in schools? This book explores the differing curriculum traditions in Britain, Europe, the USA, Latin America, India and the Far East and the possibilities for change. For the practising teacher and the educationalist it opens u...p the debates about `quality' in education which have been intense in many countries throughout the 1980s and focuses on how different countries are trying to change the curriculum to achieve higher standards and greater relevance.a Considering the age-old questions Who shall be educated? and What knowledge is of most worth? , four major curriculum traditions are examined in an historical context. The authors show how some European and American practices were freely incorporated into emerging systems in other parts of the world while elsewhere curricula were transferred by imperialists to their colonies and then modified. In the first part of the book the difficulties of curriculum change are explored within the contexts of countries where the curricula are rooted in indigenous models. The second part examines countries where curricula have been transferred from other parts of the world and how this affects curriculum change. In each case the politics of educational change since 1945, when compulsory education was introduced in many countries, has been analysed. The book will help students of education to understand the issues of curriculum reform and the transfer of curriculum models and places the problems in an international perspective with case studies.

              Originally published in 1984. Many schools are faced with the problem of what to teach the large numbers of below average pupils who are never likely to pass any GCE or CSE examination. These pupils are often troublesome, bored and eager to get out of school into the real world o...f work. At this time, many schools were planning a new curriculum for these pupils - taking account of limited abilities and concentrating on teaching skills and knowledge which will be useful when they have left school. This book, based on extensive original research, considers this problem and puts forward suggestions for how the curriculum might be reformed to cater for these pupils. It discusses both what the content of the reformed curriculum might be and how the process might be implemented to involve those teachers who teach the pupils concerned.

Consisting of 18 teachers' reports on attempts to change traditional learning environments, the contributors argue for a commitment to whole curriculum planning, which embraces a variety of learning environments both inside and outside the school wal...ls. There is a particular concern in several of the reports for lower attaining pupils and those pupils who seem to gain very little from `normal lessons'.

              Originally published in 1992. What kinds of literacy are appropriate for life and work in the late twentieth century? What historically is the relationship between curriculum and literacy, and how is it changing? The essays in this book provide an innovative forum for discussion ...for what are often two quite distinct enterprises: literacy research and curriculum studies. They re-frame and redraw the traditional boundaries between these two disciplines, examining socio-cultural theories and classroom practices in a diverse and lively debate. They explore readings of the modernist/postmodernist debate and specific studies in curriculum politics and history, rhetoric, language and literacy education, media studies and educational linguistics. This multi-voiced anthology brings together researchers from Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States in a common critical reassessment of the curriculum/literacy nexus.

A Lesson for Us All tells of the intrigue and pressures that surrounded the introduction of the National Curriculum, the most sweeping educational reform since 1944, and examines the roles of three education secretaries: Kenneth Baker, John MacGregor... and Kenneth Clarke. 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.
