For any current or future teacher.

The ninth edition of Curriculum Planning is a selection of readings that presents the knowledge, skills, and alternative strategies needed by curriculum planners and teachers at all levels of education, from early childhood through adulthood. The book offers a variety of learning experiences for students with wide-ranging interests, learning styles, and backgrounds.

Part I, “Bases for Curriculum Planning,” emphasizes the development of knowledge and skills in the three bases of the curriculum — social forces, human development, and learning and learning styles.

Part II, “Developing and Implementing the Curriculum,” includes two new chapters: Chapter 5, “Developing the Curriculum,” examines curriculum designs that can be used to develop (i.e., write) curricula. And, Chapter 6, “Curriculum and Instruction,” focuses on the interrelationships between curriculum and instruction.

Part III, “The Curriculum in Action,” emphasizes the application of curriculum planning skills for educational programs for children; early, middle, and late adolescents; and adult learners. At each level, current trends, innovations, and issues are examined from both theoretical and practical viewpoints.

New Ninth Edition Features:

-Thirty-five new articles, most of which published within the last three years, keep the text current with the newest research and most contemporary issues and trends.

-Two entirely new chapters on Curriculum Implementation, Instruction, and Technology and Curriculum Evaluation and Assessment of Learning give readers even more research-based and practical guidance for improving curriculum leadership.

-New “Curriculum Leadership Strategies” features are designed to give superintendents, principals, and educational leaders concise, practical tips for improving curriculum leadership.

-New "Leaders’ Voices: Putting Theory Into Practice" sections present an article in every chapter authored by a curriculum leader about solutions to real-world leadership challenges.

Amazing service July 30, 2011
The textbook was new and what I expected. The textbook I received was exactly as I had ordered it. The best part about this business transaction was the delivery. I received my textbook two business days later, which was great!
