This book focuses on practical concerns of curriculum construction. It includes those topics necessary for designing and writing exemplary curricula. Its intent is not to cover the wide range of curriculum topics found in many texts, but rather to deal in-depth with one very important topic: how to construct curricula that are useful for teachers in schools. The book can be used to guide those who write curricula at state, district, building and classroom level. It defines curriculum and explores the range of design concerns from philosophies and rationales to goals and objectives.
