Carroll, James Edward – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2019
In England, two concurrent but largely disconnected discourses have emerged whose representatives have promulgated initiatives relevant to students' extended historical writing: genre theorists and the history teachers' 'extended writing movement'. Despite certain goals held in common, the two discourses have tended to talk past one another…

Deng, Zongyi – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Using the 'medical' framework (symptoms, diagnosis and prescription) in Schwab's the Practical 1 article, I analyze the current state of contemporary curriculum theorizing as a result of the reconceptualist movement. I argue that curriculum theorizing is in serious crisis due to the loss of the original subject of curriculum studies--practice and…

Mirfakhraie, Amir – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Despite a rich tradition of investigating how 'Oriental' and Middle Eastern colonized others are represented in Western and Eurocentric media, policy papers, curriculum and popular culture, an important issue that has not been adequately explored by scholars of Iranian studies is how Iranian curricula writers have constructed images of Western and…

Friesen, Norm – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Joseph Schwab's famous remark, that the field of curriculum is 'moribund'--no longer able 'to …contribute significantly to the advancement of education'--has long echoed in curriculum studies. Although its specific meaning has changed, it still rings in our ears today. It now applies as much to discussions in the United States and United Kingdom…

Anderson-Levitt, Kathryn M. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
This essay examines comparison in a double sense. Focusing on ethnographies of teachers' work in the published literature, I ask whether it is possible to compare ethnographic studies across national borders without losing the particularities of local context, and also without losing the distinctive theoretical perspective of ethnographers…

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…

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". Yet, these two terms are not just exchangeable terms in two different languages, but imply also two…

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…

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. This paper connects theory and practice through analyzing a curriculum development project that sought to produce a framework for 'engaged…

It is argued that these frames…

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. In this paper, I begin by arguing that twenty-first century education policies have largely been articulated in response to the exigencies of economic globalization. Further, a survey of the…
