Curriculum: An Introduction to the Field.
Gress, James R., Ed.; Purpel, David E.
This book defines curriculum; delineates parameters of its inquiry and practice; identifies its principal problems and issues; describes, to some extent, its evolution and the state of its current art; and identifies some of its contributions to professional education in general. The discussion and selected readings are organized around seven sets of problems that are the focus of most theory and practice in curriculum: definitions of a curriculum; frameworks for addressing issues; arenas and participants for curriculum engineering; curriculum planning and design; the nature and formulation of objectives; curriculum implementation, evaluation, and change; and theory and research in the curriculum field. The book is addressed to three groups--graduate students in professional education, professionals in related areas, and the interested lay person. (Author/IRT)
