Curriculum Perspectives and Practice.
Miller, John P.; Seller, Wayne
This book introduces three major orientations to curriculum--the transmission, transaction, and transformation positions--and examines the philosophical, psychological, and social/economic foundations on which they are based. Part one of the text describes these three orientations in detail and shows how they can be used as helpful tools in understanding and analyzing curriculum tasks. Part two focuses on the primary curriculum tasks--development, implementaton, and evaluation--and shows how each of these components of the curriculum process can be conducted from each of the orientations presented in part three. The purpose of this text is to help both the practicing and the future educator conduct curriculum practices from an integrated perspective, one that is consistent with his or her world view. (JD)
