The Futility of Trying to Teach Everything of Importance.
Wiggins, Grant
Educational Leadership, v47 n3 p44-48,57-59 Nov 1989
The problem of student ignorance is really about adult ignorance of how to achieve thoughtful and long-lasting understanding. We will not escape our predominantly medieval view of curriculum, premised on knowledge as static and finite, until education learns the lessons of modern intellectual inquiry. Curricula should be organized around essential questions. Includes eight references. (MLH)
