This advanced curriculum and instruction course is for students interested in how theories of curriculum inform instructional design and delivery in both schools and other contexts. We will critically analyze curricular frameworks for equity, cultural relevance and inclusive practices. In particular, we will unpack theories for their stated and hidden curricula. Students will analyze curriculum models in the field where we will visit schools that subscribe to popular curricular models. Students will apply theories by designing a curriculum for a community partner. (Not offered 2020-21).
