Curriculum Translation and Environmental Education: Considering Issues of Discursive Intentionality, Interpretation, and Validity
Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Colak, Huseyin; Akerson, Valarie L.
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v4 n1 p149-155 Mar 2009
We would like to thank our commentators Reis, Ercikan and Alper for their insightful comments on our research study and respond in brief to a few of their criticisms. More specifically, we would like to address what we consider to be the three main issues they raise with regard to the practices of curriculum translation and implementation across languages, namely viewing speakers' intentions as a mode of signification in discourse analysis, exploring curriculum translation through an interpretive research approach, and establishing the validity of research on curriculum translation.
