Common Threads in an Emerging Tapestry: The Jagged Edge of Excellence.
Dickinson, Thomas J.
Middle School Journal, v26 n2 p3-4 Nov 1994
Introduces five articles on teachers' role in curricular change, stressing commonalities and research needs. The foremost commonality is giving voice to teachers, middle schoolers, university students, and researchers. Other common threads are the social construction of knowledge, examination of questions related to our intellectual heritage, the tensions between personal autonomy and organizational and client obligations, and integrated curriculum as an exercise in democracy.
