Foundations of Curriculum

Three semester hours.

Designed to provide an historical and conceptual foundation in the discipline of curriculum and instruction for those beginning their graduate work. It will cover the historical and philosophical beginnings of the traditional content taught in the public school systems in the U.S., from pre-kindergarten through completion of the academic core of post-secondary schooling. Examination of key components of the purpose and methods of instruction will punctuate the historical context to identify specific C&I elements in some of the following eras: ancient and pre-modern contributions; Pre-Colonial and Colonial America schooling; early foundations of instruction in the U.S.; implications of modern C&I; trends in post-modern C&I. A major element of the course will be the development of a research topic and subsequent student project focusing on the topic. Prerequisite: Graduate standing
