Written by two of the most-recognized names in the field, the heart of this book revolves around the seven “modes of inquiry” that serve as guiding principles for designing curriculum that meets the needs of students, educators, parents, and the community at large.  Coverage carefully balances theory and practicality, draws inspiration from a wide range of disciplines and contexts, and incorporates the wisdom of practicing curriculum designers from this country and others. Chapter titles include Curriculum Wisdom in Democratic Societies, Pragmatism: A Philosophy for Democratic Educators, The Arts of Inquiry: Toward Holographic Thinking, Personal and Structural Challenges, and Implications for Educational Practice. For teachers and administrators responsible for designing and implementing curriculum.
