In this much-anticipated third edition of the best-selling anthology, David J. Flinders and Stephen J. Thornton once again bring together the best scholarship in curriculum studies. From John Dewey’s nineteenth-century creed to Nel Noddings’ twenty-first century aims, this thoughtful combination of new and timely essays provides a complete survey of the discipline coupled with concrete examples of innovative curriculum and an examination of contemporary topics. New to this edition are additional historical and contextual pieces from Maria Montessori and Jerome Bruner, and a thoroughly updated collection of contemporary selections, reflecting issues such as standardization, high-stakes testing, and globalization.Carefully balanced to engage with the history of curriculum studies while simultaneously looking ahead to its future, The Curriculum Studies Readercontinues to be the most authoritative collection in the field.
