Adams, Erin – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2022

Calleja, James; Buhagiar, Michael A. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2022
This paper explores students' resistance when they were expected by their teacher to start learning mathematics through investigations, a pedagogy that emphasizes an active and agentic approach to learning in contrast to the traditional transmission-based teaching to which they were accustomed. This resistance is investigated from the perspectives…

Miguel-Revilla, Diego – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2022
Secondary education students do not usually perceive history as a subject connected with their lives, backgrounds and interests. At the same time, prospective and in-service teachers do not always have a coherent vision of this discipline, which can reflect on their students' perceptions. This study makes use of a theoretical framework developed…

This study explores academics' changing agency in curriculum work in higher education.

The interview data collection from 17 academics was implemented twice over 3 years after two different processes of…

Ares, Nancy; Cochell, Laura – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2022
Continuing racial inequities and marginalization have led some communities to reject reliance on public schooling by forming their own programmes and/or schools, claiming sovereignty over the education of their children. We highlight Freedom Schools as one such ongoing but under-studied movement that precedes and contributes to recent,…

Vaughn, Margaret; Scales, Roya Q.; Stevens, Elizabeth Y.; Kline, Sonia; Barrett-Tatum, Jennifer; Van Wig, Ann; Yoder, Karen K.; Wellman, Debra – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
Since the passing of No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 (NCLB), teacher autonomy over curricular decisions has been restricted. As a result, state and local school districts faced increased pressures to adopt highly prescriptive and standardized literacy curricular programmes. Given this context, literacy curriculum adoption has become a widely…

Maag Merki, Katharina; Buehlmann, Franziska; Kamm, Chantal; Truniger, Annina; Emmerich, Marcus – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021

This study aims to understand support practices for students in primary schools in a highly selective education system. The findings are based on a contrastive case…

Collin, Ross – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
This conceptual article critiques a popular account of education grounded in Bourdieu's social theories. Specifically, the article shows how Bourdieu overplays competition and underplays ethics, or people's diverse ways of imagining, debating, and living out the good. On a Bourdieusian view of education, it is difficult to see how educators and…

Over a hundred years later, "The Curriculum" by John Franklin Bobbitt continues to be relevant for understanding contemporary issues in education.

Brinkmann, Malte – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
Following the continental tradition of phenomenological pedagogy, this paper focuses on the lived time and space of school -- and on contexts in which school is understood as a democratic community. It does so by comparing and contrasting related works of G.W.F. Hegel (1770-1831), Martinus Langeveld (1905-1989) and Eugen Fink (1905-1975). It shows…
