A Selected Guide to Curriculum Literature: An Annotated Bibliography.
Tyler, Louise L.
This annotated bibliography on curriculum is the third publication of the auxiliary series to "Schools for the 70's--and Beyond," a publication and action program of NEA's Center for the Study of Instruction. Addressed principally to curriculum specialists and to university and school researchers, it is designed "to serve as an intellectual instrument to enable the reader to understand the character and direction of curriculum as it currently exists, to engage in dialogue, and then to redirect some of the formulation of ideas about curriculum." The author has followed a systematic method of analysis of each selected citation and further has organized the annotations according to a stated conceptualization of curriculum. The prime considerations for selection of references were: representation of some important intellectual idea in the field of curriculum and an observable degree of influence upon curriculum persons. The four chapters of the book are (1) An Introduction; (2) A View of the Curriculum (which provides a general commentary, an eight-part outline of topics and references, and cross-references related to the topics); (3) Annotations (which offers a three-part commentary on each of the 68 references--i.e., structure, interpretation, and criticism--as well as relationships to other authors); and (4) Considerations for Tomorrow (which summarizes some promising directions now appearing in curriculum literature and some needs in the field).
