Curriculum Development: A Guide to Practice (8th Edition) (Pearson Custom Education)

Customer Reviews:

The 6th Edition Tries Hard, but Falls Flat

By "matt9992000" - February 15, 2003

This book looks promising, but the authors seem to be writing about recent-past trends in curriculum as if they were the waves of the future. They seem to have a strong bias for unstructured classrooms and postmodernism, even though those ideas appear to have reached their peaks and begun to decline in the real world.

An excellent start

Think Big

By A Customer - July 28, 2003

The authors of this long-running text are way out front in focusing on the Internet as curriculum's future. The entire first
chapter is dedicated to what a technological district might look like and how curriculum decisions will shape that future in schools. Further reading brings the reader face-to-face with
the complexities of such value decisions.I use this text in my classes and find that students usually
select to keep it ater the class ends. What greater testimony to
this book's use as a desktop resource could be made?
