Prendergast, Mark; Treacy, Paraic – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Algebra has long been identified as an area of difficulty in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Evidence of this difficulty can be found in Irish secondary-level classrooms.

Ergas, Oren – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Curriculum discourse focuses understandably, on the formal and enacted curriculum; however, studies demonstrate that much of individuals' waking hours are spent in task-unrelated thinking and mind-wandering. No less, this pervasive phenomenon has been shown to affect us in many ways that can be linked to education. This paper examines this…

McPhail, Graham – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
This paper considers curriculum integration in the secondary school context and investigates the claims made that it can enhance learning outcomes for students.

Horlacher, Rebekka – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Discussions about the what, the when and the how of teaching and learning in schools deal in German-speaking countries with the term "Lehrplan", while English-speaking countries discuss similar topics with the term "curriculum".

Hodge, Steven – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Curriculum theorists have acknowledged the relevance of "hermeneutics", or theory of interpretation and understanding, to curriculum studies. In the European "Didaktik" tradition hermeneutics has also been applied to the curriculum work of educators, but such an extension is rarer in the Anglo-American tradition. Educators in…

However, in the absence of professional guidance, Chinese kindergartens have been forced to "ride a blind horse" when developing curriculum. The aim of this study was to understand the nature of and mechanisms…

Bamber, Philip; Lewin, David; White, Morgan – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Despite a groundswell of evidence for transformative education, manifestos for 'transformative pedagogy for global citizenship' remain under-theorized and pay limited attention to implications for practice.

Collin, Ross – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
This article presents discourse analyses of two teachers' statements about the economic payoff of studying English in the United States' high schools. Specifically, the article examines how English teachers construe reading as an economic asset that can be developed in schools and used on the job. Pierre Bourdieu's concepts of field and capital…

Llopart, Mariona; Esteban-Guitart, Moisès – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Although the first educational applications of the "funds of knowledge" (FoK) concept were carried out in the late 1980s, there have been numerous developments and proposals since then, many of which have been made within the last few years. It continues to be, therefore, a valid, cutting-edge educational approach; one which seeks to…

Choo, Suzanne S. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
All over the world, educators and policy-makers are concerned about how best to prepare students to engage actively in an increasingly interconnected world.
