Problems in Search of Disciplined Attention or a Discipline in Search of Its Problems: A Discussion of Some Assumptions in a Curriculum Theory.
Westbury, Ian
The study of curriculum may be characterized as an inquiry into the range of ways in which the subject matters of teacher, student, subject, and milieu can be seen. A review of the literature indicates that curriculum theory has been under development for several years. However, considerable research and conceptual formulation must be done to define the specific variables of the field adequately and to integrate them into a discipline of "curriculum," sufficiently identified for theoretical analysis and recognition as an academic subfield. A number of suggestions are made toward the development of curriculum theory, particularly concerning the practical relationships of curriculum to the four-part framework of students, teachers, subject matters, and milieux.
