✒SUMMARY: This critical analysis locates Irish curriculum policy and practice in their broader socio-cultural and policy contexts. Such an analysis is particularly necessary at a time when Irish schools are experiencing unprecedented waves of curriculum reform in a context where substantive curriculum debates rarely occur. The book explores the implications of these contextual factors for 'official' understandings of and attitudes towards curriculum, with particular reference to the experiences of the curriculum development agencies, recent curriculum reforms and the nature of Irish curriculum contestation and discourse. Education and curriculum policy-making are considered from the perspectives of economic growth, social inclusion, policy fragmentation and the prevailing representational model of partnership. The study identifies the tensions that inevitably arise in attempting to achieve both quality and equality in education, and offers some alternatives to the prevailing contractual model of accountability. The author draws on his own long experience of curriculum development and evaluation and on interviews with key players in Irish curriculum decision-making.

✒SUMMARY: Exceptional in relating curriculum to teaching strategies and methods, this book includes the latest in curriculum development, practice, theory, and instructional strategies based on research in how people learn. It is designed to engage teachers in understanding curriculum, reflecting upon it and carrying out their own role in curriculum making. Constructivist pedagogy is a central element throughout the book. Attention to the political and social forces impacting the teacher's role provide information on the accountability movement, the profitization of education, changed views of learning and the influence of technology. Chapter One, Who Makes Curriculum? Roles and Levels of Decision Making, describes federal, state and local efforts to control curriculum, and provides specific cases and suggestions that show how teachers can fulfill their moral, critical and professional responsibilities within these official constraints. Chapter Two, Curriculum in the Context of School Reform, offers an in-depth, up-to-date examination of the impact of various reform policies on classroom practices. Coverage of multiculturalism, globalization, reform, assessment, and standards encourages consideration of the most recent trends and issues influencing curriculum development.
