TOWARD A DISCIPLINE OF CURRICULUM THEORY.
MANN, JOHN S.
THIS PAPER SUGGESTS A FORM WHICH A CURRICULUM THEORY MIGHT TAKE. SCHWAB'S ANALYSIS OF THE STRUCTURES CHARACTERISTIC OF DISCIPLINES IS USED TO CLASSIFY AND REVEAL RELATIONS AMONG VARIOUS EFFORTS. SCHWAB CONTENDS THAT ALL DISCIPLINES MANIFEST THREE KINDS OF STRUCTURE--ORGANIZATIONAL, SUBSTANTIVE, AND SYNTACTICAL. THESE THREE STRUCTURES AND THEIR INTERRELATIONSHIPS ARE DISCUSSED AND USED AS REFERENCE POINTS FOR A SUGGESTED CURRICULUM THEORY APPROACH. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT A CURRICULUM THEORY IS RELATIVELY UNDEVELOPED AND THAT, IN THE INTEREST OF ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE OF CERTAIN PHENOMENA WITHIN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION, SUCH A THEORY IS NEEDED. SOME OF THE RELEVANT LITERATURE ON CURRICULUM THEORY IS DISCUSSED. (HW)
