Description

Canadian Curriculum Studies: Trends, Issues, and Influences brings together the work of education scholars and the experiences of teachers in a comprehensive collection of articles with a uniquely Canadian perspective. It is essential reading for curriculum developers, teachers, education students, and anyone who has puzzled over the meaning of “curriculum.”

Editor Susan E. Gibson has assembled her anthology into three thematic parts: Defining Curriculum, Historical Influences on the Curriculum in Canada, and Contemporary Issues and Trends in Canadian Curriculum. Each section is introduced by thought- provoking commentary and each article is complemented by reflective questions. In the twenty-two selected articles, distinguished educators discuss the past, present, and future directions of curriculum development in Canada.

This in-depth examination of curriculum covers a thorough range of topics, including the characteristics of Canadian curriculum, public vs. private education, citizenship and Canadian identity, gender and sexuality in the curriculum, and environmental, Aboriginal, global, and religious education. It also considers the impact of pioneering educators, provincial curriculum reforms, cultural diversity and multiculturalism, and geographical location.

Editorial Review

This well-assembled compilation of curriculum studies provides an excellent foundation for thinking about how we have come to this point in our own education and in our efforts to advance the education of others.
