Contemporary Curriculum Discourses

Twenty Years of JCT- Second Printing


William F. Pinar, Caddo Gap Press and William F. Pinar

JCT was the most important journal of curriculum studies during the field’s «paradigm» shift in the 1970s. Its editors sponsored a yearly conference, which also supported the «intellectual breakthrough» that was the reconceptualization of American curriculum studies. This collection brings together «the best» of JCT articles, plus key documentary material of importance to scholars and students alike. Undergraduate and graduate students in curriculum, instruction, and foundations would find this book useful and insightful.
