Postmodernism in Special Education.
Gerber, Michael M.
Journal of Special Education, v28 n3 p368-78 Fall 1994
This paper urges special educators to be wary of borrowing fashionable rhetoric of postmodernism to justify constructivism in the reform of instruction and curriculum without disentangling accompanying constructs and values. There are higher stakes for special education, particularly in national curriculum and testing reform, that accompany constructivism as a rationale for development of instructional curricular strategies.
