COURSE: 51-737 Curriculum Theory (3)
Curriculum Theory examines social and philosophical foundations of curriculum. It takes the position that curriculum as what students learn, and the decisions made to determine it, are never neutral and thus must be considered from the values and beliefs that make curricular programs rational. This course assumes a strong knowledge of the historical aspects of curriculum but seeks to understand the function of curriculum theoretically.
