Theory and Phenomena in Curriculum Research: The Classroom as a Test Case.
Westbury, Ian; Abrahamson, Jon H.
One of the major issues in education is curriculum relevancy. To make education more relevant, curricula have been revised and redesigned; but many of these revisions have failed to be implemented at the classroom level because teachers and administrators are incapable of changing the classroom environment. Traditional 19th century instruction methods of lecture and recitation impede the implementation of curricular innovations. Before curriculum reform can be attained, instructional methods must be made compatible with the anticipated reforms. (RA)
