Conceptual Disciplinary Structures and the Curriculum.
Connelly, F. Michael
Common approaches to ordering the curriculum content of a scholastic discipline include a hierarchical structuring of the discipline's major concepts and a view of inquiry as learners solving problems. Other approaches include logical prerequisite, concept inclusion, generalization, concept interrelationship, chronology, and subject matter. Countering these views is an approach called "patterns of enquiry," which addresses specific problem areas of a discipline, resulting in a set of logical conditions for curriculum determination. Three principles from biology--(1) antecedent-consequent, classification and taxonomy; (2) structure-function, classification and taxonomy; and (3) structure-function, energectics--illustrate the application of this view to the determination of curriculums for the genecological study of communities.
