History and Analysis of Curriculum Thought, 1940-1975.
Mullen, Gregory J.
This study was done in response to calls for histories of the curriculum field. Ideas within three subareas of the curriculum--design, engineering (planning, implementation, and evaluation), and theory--were analyzed, related to earlier and later work, and critically reviewed for their contributions to the field. Criteria were established for selecting the most influential major works addressed to the three subareas. Progress was noted in curriculum design and planning, although much research is needed to test assumptions. Curriculum evaluation and theory have recently emerged and show great promise. Curriculum implementation remains the least investigated area. (Author)
