The Case against Teaching as Delivery of the Curriculum
Kim, Youngjoo
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n7 p54-56 Apr 2011

However, this approach of teacher as curriculum deliverer is associated with many problems, including the suppression of student voices, the narrowing of critical thought, and the neglect of the teachable moments.
