Curriculum on the Edge of Survival: How Schools Fail to Prepare Students for Membership in a Democracy (Hardback)

£60.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Daniel Heller contends that public education is in a downward spiral because we have failed to notice the erosion of the basic curricular dimensions which support the preparation of students as active participants in our ever-changing world. While many books explain procedural knowledge such as how to differentiate instruction, how to create standards-based curriculum, or how to write a constructivist lesson-Curriculum on the Edge of Survival discusses the "what" and "why" rather than the how. What is the purpose of schools in a free, democratic society, and why is the answer to that question crucial in deciding the most fundamental questions about curriculum?
