THE NATURE OF A DISCIPLINE-CENTERED CURRICULAR APPROACH.
MACCIA, ELIZABETH STEINER
IN ITS MOST GENERAL SENSE DISCIPLINE MEANS INSTRUCTION, WHICH IS A RELATIONAL TERM REQUIRING TWO THINGS FOR ITS EXEMPLIFICATION-- TEACHING AND LEARNING. INSTRUCTION INVOLVES BRINGING ABOUT BEHAVIORAL CHANGE THROUGH REGULATED BEHAVIOR, THEREFORE DISCIPLINE ALSO MEANS REGULATION. DISCIPLINE AS A RULE OF PRACTICAL CONDUCT AND AS AN ORGANIZED BODY OF KNOWLEDGE DOES RELATE TO THE CONTENT OF INSTRUCTION AND DOES NOT ENTAIL AN ERRONEOUS INTERPRETIVE CONTEXT OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR. THUS PRACTICAL RULES OF CONDUCT AND ORGANIZED BODIES OF KNOWLEDGE BECOME VIABLE MEANINGS WITH RESPECT TO A DISCIPLINE-CENTERED CURRICULAR APPROACH. A DISCIPLINE-CENTERED CURRICULAR APPROACH SHOULD BE CENTERED IN STRUCTURE, WHICH IS NOT INCOMPATIBLE WITH SUBJECTS, PROBLEMS, OR INTERESTS AS BASES FOR ORGANIZATION OF THE CONTENT FOR LEARNING. (ES)
