Generativity: Lived Experience as Curricular Content.
Wallin, Jason; Graham, Tanya
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v48 n4 p341-49 Win 2002
Modern educational practice, inspired by the scientific rationalism of the 17th and 18th centuries, focuses on control, certainty, and order, thus rendering students' experiences superficial. Generativity "finds" the curriculum in students' life experiences, giving them relevance and the opportunity to be explored. Where life is not the source of the curriculum, truly transformative learning is suppressed. (Contains 21 references.) (TD)
