Towards the Advancement of a Theoretical and Empirical Framework for Curriculum.
Beatty, P. J.
The discovery of theory is a major task confronting educators and researchers in many disciplines. More specifically, Eisner (1971) contends that with the exception of four studies, no attempt to systematically study curriculum has been made. Further conceptualizations and empirical investigations in this area are needed. It's apparent that while some conceptual ideas advanced by Tyler, Goodlad and others are necessary, without further conceptualization and empirical tests the development of curriculum as an area of scholarly and artful practice is limited (Eisner, 1971). Thus, the purpose of this essay is to address (1) the theoretical framework and its implications for curriculum theory, (2) the empirical framework and its implications for curriculum theory, (3) the present status of curriculum theory in relation to these two frameworks, and (4) further theoretical and/or empirical investigations to advance curriculum theory.
