Curriculum or Common Sense? An Exploration in the Classroom Production of Useful Knowledge.
Grahame, Peter R.
Journal of Educational Thought, v22 n2A p237-46 Oct 1988
Discusses the social organization of knowledge with respect to the teaching of everyday living skills. Examines communication strategies in a lesson on nutrition, finding a disjunction between the teachers' skill-oriented curricular framework and the impulses toward practical reasoning in the students' responses. Advocates a coping-oriented, rather than skill-based, curriculum. (DMM)
