Gottlieb, Derek; Moroye, Christy M. – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
We examine the reliance on rubrics for educational evaluation and explore whether such tools fulfill their promise. Following Wittgensteinian critical strategies, we explore what "the application of the [rubric] picture looks like" and then evaluate (a) whether those benefits are attributable to rubric use at all, and (b) whether any of…

McKnight, Lucinda – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
This article shifts from the formal learning spaces of school and university to an Australian public swimming pool to playfully engage some of the dilemmas that recent theory poses for curriculum studies. The article enacts multiple diffractions (Barad, 2007) as theory becomes swimming and swimming becomes theory, and ideas and movements are…

Petitfils, Brad – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
In today's society, where the Promethean project of mastering the universe seems to guide the scientific community to its last moment of triumph--human immortality--young people seem to lack curricular opportunities to engage with mortality. This is not surprising, as the legacy of psychology, as far back as the times of Freud and Jung, exposes a…

Schwartz, Chad – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
An engagement with the senses is essential to the creation of closeness and intimacy between people and their environment. It follows then that the development of this way of thinking about the built environment should be prominently addressed in the training of future architects. If an architect has the opportunity--or responsibility--to…

Smith, Bryan – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
The current generation of students live and learn within a pedagogical milieu saturated by digital technologies. Curriculum scholars have not ignored this, theorizing and critiquing the ways that technology both affords and limits opportunities for students. Notably absent from this conversation, however, is a consideration of how the technologies…

Sherfinski, Melissa; Weekley, Brandi Slider; Slocum, Audra – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2016
This case study explores how opportunities for critical, place-based education can be eclipsed by the decontextualized curricula and pedagogies inherent in neoliberal, standards-based early education reforms such as universal pre-kindergarten that contain some progressive elements. Following Schwab (1973), we explore the roles of teachers and…

Burke, Kevin; Segall, Avner – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2015
This article focuses on the possible ways in which the standards movement and the assessments and curricular interventions that come along with it, draw on inherently religious (Judeo-Christian) language and traditions. Contributing to a larger critical conversation about standards and impact on education, and building on an emerging scholarly…

Within educational research across Europe and the US, one of the most rapidly traveling discourses and highly funded pursuits of the moment is brain-based learning (BBL). BBL is an approach to curriculum and pedagogical decision-making that is located within the new field of educational neuroscience. In some strands of BBL research the structure…

Garrett, H. James – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2015
This article is derived from my practice as a teacher educator working with social studies teachers. In it, I write in tentative steps to think pedagogically about the ways that encountering a particular text, Toni Morrison's novel "Beloved," can illustrate the ways in which knowledge is reformed or recognized in the pedagogical scene.…

Kawka, Marta; Nieddu, Mick – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2015
In artist-teacher practice, what separates the art practice of an artist-teacher from their art teaching? At what point does art practice stop and art teaching begin? In what instance does an artwork concept begin? Where does an idea for a student art activity come from? Is the creative process different in conceptualizing our own artwork compared…
