Curriculum Leadership: That All May Feel, Value, and Grow.
Berman, Louise M.
The task of the school is to foster the diversity that is prized in families, homes, and the culture in general, but within a framework containing some common understandings. In searching for sources that might provide common and valuable foundations for curriculum workers, a number of sources were considered. Because the literature on play seemed to combine exciting ideas from a variety of fields and to provide insights useful in considering the potential impact of the curriculum worker on schooling, play is used as a basis for reexamining curriculum leadership. In this paper, the curriculum worker, whatever his title, is seen as a player. Aspects of play given consideration are enjoying, transcending, questing, mastering, renewing, and expressing. These concepts are seen as possessing fruitful leads for the curriculum worker; therefore, each concept is discussed rather generally and then more specifically in terms of the curriculum worker.
