Baszile, Denise Taliaferro – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Within our current order of knowledge, propagated by the Humanities and Social Sciences, the mattering of Black lives is all but inconceivable.

Kromidas, Maria – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Sylvia Wynter's wide-ranging intellectual contributions contain a poetics of being and becoming human that serve to counter the hegemony of developmental psychology and its articulation of the child in teacher education.

Limes-Taylor Henderson, Kelly – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
In this article, I argue that the Black experience in the United States settler colony is one primarily based in a systematic erasure of indigeneity from the enslaved African.

Eppley, Karen – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Close reading has been a key shift in classroom instruction under the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS positions evidence extraction as the purpose for reading in school and is clear that close reading is the means by which this should occur.

Howard, Philip S. S.; James, Carl E. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019

Hwang, Soon Ye – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Resisting a deep-seated technical perspective of education, I attend to the notion of attunement as a key concept with which to imagine curriculum as a complicated conversation. As fully appreciating the meaning and potential of attunement requires an embodied sense of the word that is deployed by working from within our bodily, social, and…

Classrooms are host to complex sonic ecologies informed by ritualized patterns and routines, but there remains a dearth of scholarship studying everyday sounds of schooling.

Thomas, Rhianna – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
In my second year teaching at the elementary level, two biracial first graders told a Black child that she could not play because her skin was too dark.
