Although traditional curriculum and instructional leadership frameworks have dominated educational administration training for almost thirty years, it has become increasingly clear that even the most recent frameworks have failed today’s leaders who struggle with the politics of curriculum decisions on a daily basis. Critical Curriculum Leadership is an examination of curriculum leadership in the wake of U.S. testing mandates and school reforms, all of which seem to support a particular set of conservative ideologies. Drawing from her own longitudinal ethnographic study and from existing literature and research in the field, Ylimaki explores the formation of curriculum leadership in relation to broader cultural and political shifts. She shows how traditional leadership frameworks have come up short, and makes the case for an alternative leadership theory at the intersection of educational leadership and curriculum studies. She provides analytical tools that inspire progressive education and offers critical theories, strategies, research examples, problem-posing cases, and research ideas essential for curriculum leadership in the present conservative era. Critical Curriculum Leadership will appeal to the many educational leadership scholars and practitioners who are interested in developing effective and socially just curricula in their schools and districts as well as curriculum scholars who are interested in leadership issues.

This book provides educators with guidance on studying and practicing a curriculum problem solving artistry that is focused on deepening students’ subject matter understandings through democratic self and social understandings. The book begins with a discussion of seven principles of curriculum leadership, which provide a framework for the presentation of a theoretical platform that guides a four-phased process. The curriculum problem solving has four interrelated phases, and advice on studying and practicing each phase has been organized into separate chapters using a montage format incorporating inquiry prompts, supportive quotations, critical commentaries, practical tips, narrative illustrations, and study recommendations. There is a continuous recognition of the ways in which the four phases are folded into one another in highly interactive ways; hence, the problem solving approach is described as a fourfold process. The text concludes with an epilogue honoring the disciplined journey of understanding and the pursuit of professional virtues that are central to the cultivation of problem solving artistry. An ethical oath that was created by twenty Ohio teacher leaders serves as a collegial pledge to embrace this disciplinary commitment.

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This volume argues for the need of a common ground that bridges leadership studies, curriculum theory, and Didaktik. It proposes a non-affirmative education theory and its core concepts along with discursive institutionalism as an analytical tool to bridge these fields. It concludes with implications of its coherent theoretical framing for future empirical research. Recent neoliberal policies and transnational governance practices point toward new tensions in nation state education. These challenges affect governance, leadership and curriculum, involving changes in aims and values that demand coherence. Yet, the traditionally disparate fields of educational leadership, curriculum theory and Didaktik have developed separately, both in terms of approaches to theory and theorizing in USA, Europe and Asia, and in the ways in which these theoretical traditions have informed empirical studies over time. An additional aspect is that modern education theory was developed in relation to nation state education, which, in the meantime, has become more complicated due to issues of ‘globopolitanism’. This volume examines the current state of affairs and addresses the issues involved. In doing so, it opens up a space for a renewed and thoughtful dialogue to rethink and re-theorize these traditions with non-affirmative education theory moving beyond social reproduction and social transformation perspectives.

Using "cultures of curriculum" as a lens, this clear, compelling text reveals and critically examines the belief systems and classroom practices of curricular orientations in contemporary American society. It is designed to foster awareness, examination, and deliberation about the curricula planned for and carried out in classrooms and schools; to inspire conversations about theory and practice as well as political, social, and moral issues; and to expand critical consciousness about approaches to curriculum and practice. Readers are encouraged to give serious attention to the issues this book raises for them, and to join with their colleagues, students, and communities in considering how to create curricula with purpose and congruent practices and to reculture classrooms and schools. A framework of inquiry is presented to facilitate such reflection and to accomplish these goals. Cultures of Curriculum, Second Edition: Introduces the field of curriculum studies by describing theories and questions pertinent to curriculum inquiry Describes the process of curriculum leadership drawing from historical and contemporary research on curriculum change and transformation Presents the concept of cultures of curriculum as a way of thinking of curriculum as cultural text encompassing histories, norms, beliefs, values, roles, and environments. Connects theory to practice by describing curricular orientations as depicted in practice, providing educators with approaches to instruction, planning, and assessment for creating intentional practices in classrooms and schools Uses a heuristic that helps educators to understand curricular orientations, examine curriculum in classrooms and schools, and reflect upon their own beliefs and practices Integrates moral and political discourse into discussions of curriculum orientations so that educators can recognize, question, and challenge aims and actions by examining dominant paradigms and both their direct and unforeseeable influences upon schooling Changes in the second edition: Four new chapters – "Narrowing the Curriculum" (current trends of standardization and high-stakes testing) "Educating Through Occupations (Deweyan progressive and career/technical education) "Sustaining Indigenous Traditions" (Native American/indigenous education) "Envisioning Peace" (peace, global, human rights, environmental education) Updates and pertinent scholarship in all chapters reflecting recent events and discourses Curricular cultures all are examples of progressive alternatives to traditional education New two-part structure: Curriculum Studies and Curricular Cultures

Ein Schlüsselwerk der internationalen Reformpädagogik. Systematisch begründet der amerikanische Philosoph und Pädagoge Erziehung und Demokratie als Formen "gemeinsamer und miteinander geteilter Erfahrung". Die Schule als Modell für Demokratie wird zur Grundlage des Lehrens und Lernens in modernen Gesellschaften. "Demokratie und Erziehung", 1916 erstmals erschienen, gilt als das Hauptwerk John Deweys und als Schlüsselwerk der internationalen Reformpädagogik. Dewey entwickelt eine moderne Pädagogik aus der Idee, "Erziehung" als demokratische Erfahrung zu begründen, wie andererseits "Demokratie" als Medium der Erziehungserfahrung zu verstehen. Erziehung ist nicht Funktion oder Instrument der Politik, sondern sie verwirklicht sich als Demokratie. Die Schule wird zur "Keimzelle" der demokratischen Gesellschaft. Deweys Forderung nach einer Schule, die sich nicht als Ort gesellschaftlicher Reproduktion, sondern als Ort gesellschaftlicher Transformation versteht, sein Verständnis von Schule als Modell für Demokratie ist auch in der heutigen Erziehungswissenschaft noch aktuell. Den zweiten Teil seines Werkes bestimmen sehr konkrete Ausführungen zur Methodik und Didaktik der Schule als Lernumwelt, in deren Mittelpunkt er den Begriff des "Erfahrungslernens" stellt. Diese Ausgabe schließt mit einer umfangreichen, aktualisierten Auswahlbibliografie.
