Notes on the Curriculum Field 1978. The First Annual State of the Art Address.
Pinar, William F.
This paper was one of two presentations made at a session designed to provide for the field of curriculum and assessment of its methodological and substantive status, as well as an assessment of the implications of that status for practice. The recent history of the field is sketched briefly. The ideas "curricular possibilities" and "improvement" are discussed as these have been understood in the field, and why "comprehension" is viewed as a "first step." Finally, a reconceptualization of these ideas is laid out in summary fashion. (Author/MLF)
