Cracking the Time Code: Making Issues of Temporality in Curriculum Visible.
Woo, Joyceln Yen Yen
This paper explores how looking at the lived time of secondary school students in Singapore has generated questions for curricular theory and practice. In-depth interviews, three of which are described, show the intersection of temporality and lived experience. Students are aware of rational, clock time, but seem to understand that there is an experience of time that goes beyond clock time. Singapore educators have been concerned with the lack of historical consciousness among their young people, and have proposed curricular revisions to bring about an awareness of Singapores past development. In the rush into organizing the learning and lives of young people, this paper challenges educators to look at temporality in its textured detail to consider how its lived materiality might generate new questions for curricular theory and practice. What time means to students must also be considered in educational planning. (Contains 22 references.) (SLD)
