I know that many others share these worries as well. Speaking honestly, I am deeply concerned that too much of the field of curriculum has lost its way. Too much of it is characterized by a…

Langer Primdahl, Nis; Reid, Alan; Simovska, Venka – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
Perspectives and approaches to health and wellbeing education vary considerably over time and space even as certain contextual and critical features may be maintained.

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018
The crisis of education frequently is framed in terms of methods, where quantitative research is accused of making the subject invisible through quantification, whereas qualitative research is credited for the emphasis on subjectivity and the discursive construction of reality. Such formulations fail to take into account a long-standing critique…

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…

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…

Letrud, Kåre; Hernes, Sigbjørn – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2016
This article examines the diffusion and present day status of a family of unsubstantiated learning-retention myths, some of which are referred to as "the learning pyramid".

Rosenmund, Moritz – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2016
Why should we assume systematic comparative research on state-based curriculum-making to be possible at all, given the high complexity and large variety of institutional forms of educational and political systems across nation-states? On the other hand, how can we explain the significant endeavour of nation-states all over the world to align their…
