The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction

F. Michael Connelly,

The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction

About the eBook

The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction is the first book in 15 years to comprehensively cover the field of curriculum and instruction. Editors F. Michael Connelly, Ming Fang He, and JoAnn Phillion, along with contributors from around the world, synthesize the diverse, real-world matters that define the field. This long-awaited Handbook aims to advance the study of curriculum and instruction by re-establishing continuity within the field while acknowledging its practical, contextual, and theoretical diversity.

Key Features

  • Offers a practical vision of the field: Defines three divisions—school curriculum subject matter, curriculum and instruction topics and preoccupations, and general curriculum theory.
  • Presents the breadth and diversity of the field: A focus on the diversity of problems, practices, and solutions, as well as continuity over time, illustrates modern curriculum and instruction while understanding historical origins.
  • Gives an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary focus: Offers a new way of interpreting the history of curriculum studies, which connects past, present, and future, leading to more productive links between practice, policy, and politics.

Intended Audience

This Handbook contributes to stronger ties between school practice, public debate, policy making, and university scholarship, making it a valuable resource for professors, graduate students, and practitioners in the field of education. It is an excellent choice for graduate courses in Curriculum and Instruction, Curriculum Theory and Development, Curriculum Studies, Teacher Education, and Educational Administration and Leadership.
