Online Submission, National Forum of Teacher Education Journal v17 n3 2006
The authors of this article seek to deconstruct traditional thinking about education while introducing a postmodern view of curriculum development. "Ways of Knowing Through the Realms of Meaning," an exhaustive work by Dr. William Kritsonis, distinguished writer, lecturer, and editor provides curriculum leaders an important tool by which they may shape a new way of looking at things to develop that reflects new and changing realities. Curriculum can be developed that will continue to be relevant and vital for each successive generation as definitions of quality, integrity, and language are continuously revisited. The bottom line is that the conceptual framework can be a useful paradigm for curriculum selection and development that will continue to be fresh and useful. The "Ways of Knowing Through the Realms of Meaning" provides a key to success in education because it gives a legitimate blueprint to "What does a person need to know?"
