Watkins, Debbie; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission, National Forum of Applied Educational Research Journal v21 n3 2008
"The fundamental task of any educational institution is to determine the manner of defining and organizing its curriculum. At the outset the obvious fact that there is more to learn, more to teach, and more to put in the curriculum than time available presents the educators with hard choices" (Kritsonis, 2007, p. v.) Therefore it is imperative that new paradigms for educational curriculum designs, teaching models, and educational delivery systems be investigated to ensure that the most appropriate levels of meaning and understanding are delivered to the students in our classrooms. Utilizing a post-modernistic approach to education, this article lays a beginning foundation and treatise on how to successfully integrate a curriculum based on philosophy, postmodernism, and the "Ways of Knowing Through the Realms of Meaning" (Kritsonis, 2007) curriculum selection guide.
