Description:

Curriculum Development in the Postmodern Eraprovided the first introduction to and analysis of contemporary concepts of curriculum development in relation to postmodernism. It challenged educators to transcend purely traditional approaches to curriculum development and instead to incorporate various postmodern discourses into their reflection and action in schools. Since its publication in 1995, the curriculum studies field has exploded, the very notion of the postmodern has shifted and the landscape of American schooling has changed dramatically - federal policies like "No Child Left Behind" have dramatically increased the focus on accountability and consequently what and how teachers teach. In this much-anticipated and thoroughly updated edition, noted curriculum studies scholar Patrick Slattery tackles these and other issues to reflect on the current state of curriculum development and on where the field may go from here.
