Moral Aspects of Curriculum: "Making Kids Care" about School Knowledge.
Page, Reba N.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v30 n1 p1-26 Jan-Feb 1998
Describes the "relevant" curriculum, that students feel is related to their lives, in a high school history class. Traces how "relevant" lessons work on students, how students in turn "work" relevance, and whose relevance is consequential. Argues that the school successfully imposes "relevance," but alienates students in the process. (DSK)
