Curriculum Foundations

This course is designed to examine the nature of curriculum and the basic principles of the curriculum development process. The nature of curriculum is approached by a search for commonalities that are present in the conflicting views of curriculum. The curriculum development process is examined through major theoretical models of the process and the curriculum organization patterns across Canada. Special attention is given to the role of the teacher and principal in this process as well as the functions and competencies of other curriculum workers. Recent innovations in curriculum organization serve as reference points throughout this course.
