Meta-Theory and Curriculum Development.
Hartoonian, H. Michael
Curriculum development in any area should be imbued with a meaning that focuses on the cultural values of motivation, logic, and human relationships. The term "meaning" implies seeing relationships (linguistic, economic, political, moral), understanding logic, and being sensitive to the enduring values of the culture. Curriculum developers and users should understand that school and society represent countervailing forces and that the curriculum should present this tension in a mutually evaluative perspective. They should be sensitive to the epistemological bases which define course content and the notion that classroom/community discourse is an important curriculum development activity. Those involved with curriculum development must carry on a dialogue within the educational community and between that community and the rest of the world. (KC)
