A Catholic Curriculum for the Twenty-First Century?
Davis, Robert A.; Franchi, Leonard
International Studies in Catholic Education, v5 n1 p36-52 2013
This essay responds to and develops ideas set out in Robert Davis' 1999 essay "Can there be a Catholic curriculum?" It takes the measure of far-reaching changes that have taken place in curriculum studies and strategic educational thought in the intervening period as the process of globalisation has intensified. It re-engages with the traditions of the Catholic mind and their place in education, drawing upon the commitment of Pope Benedict XVI to a "new humanism" in learning and teaching at all levels of Catholic educational practices. Revisiting the principles of the Catholic curriculum, the essay also sets these within a wider and timely Catholic construction of liberal education fit for the challenges of the modern era.
