In this fifth edition of David J. Flinders and Stephen J. Thornton's ground-breaking anthology, the editors assemble the best in past and present curriculum studies scholarship. From John Dewey's nineteenth-century creed to Nel Noddings' provocative twenty-first-century analysis of the Common Core, this thoughtful combination of well-recognized and pivotal work provides a complete survey of the discipline, coupled with concrete examples of innovative curriculum and an examination of current topics. New to this edition is a dynamic set of contemporary contributions tackling issues such as gender, sexuality, race, and ecology in curriculum scholarship and practice, as well as an additional historical piece from Paulo Freire.
Carefully balanced to engage with the history of curriculum studies while simultaneously looking ahead to its future, The Curriculum Studies Reader continues to be the most authoritative collection in the field.
David J. Flinders is Professor of Curriculum Studies in the School of Education at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. Stephen J. Thornton is Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning at the University of South Florida, Tampa, USA.
