Summary

This volume integrates critical curriculum theory with best practice#x14;extending John Dewey's and Maxine Greene's progressive educational philosophy into the domain of curriculum theory and practice. The authors select four significant theoretical topics, and then apply this knowledge to the work of practitioners. The practice of these educators is examined closely to determine how they engage in reflective practice, collaborative decision-making, and curriculum construction informed by diverse curriculum studies. Prominent scholars discuss curriculum deliberation (Gail McCutcheon), reflexive systems (Noel Gough), cultural criticism (Joe Kincheloe), and educational mythopoetics (Kathleen Kesson). To clarify theoretical points and link these topics to practice, the text includes a variety of personal anecdotes, illustrations, and personal reflections, including those of a public school teacher and curriculum leader, Kerrin McCadden.
