EDU854 - Advanced Curriculum Practices and Models

This course in curriculum will provide an introduction to the foundational areas that affect the design and development of curriculum. The course will include the history, social forces, philosophy, and psychology behind many of the curriculum practices and issues that exist in schools today as well as the nature of the curriculum development process. The focus of this course will be on the process of using knowledge about curriculum and evaluation in an imaginative, creative way. Ultimately, the educator will then be able to anticipate and plan for change in an active way, rather than falling prey to every bandwagon or societal pressure that affects the school curriculum.
