Constructivism: Implications for Curriculum.
Glatthorn, Allan A.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v3 n4 p449-55 Oct 1994
Constructivism emphasizes the learner as an active meaning maker and problem solver. This article reviews constructivism's basic principles, analyzes implications for curriculum work, and explores a constructivist unit-development process. Planners must decide degree of curricular integration, establish unit parameters, identify the problem, draft unit scenarios, and determine the knowledge and learning strategies required.
