Format: Paperback
In this quick read, Applebee suggests that when considering curriculum, educators think about the role of conversation. Without a need for real, deep, meaningful conversation around unanswered intriguing questions, curriculum is dead. All too frequently curriculum rests in a set of standards, benchmarks and already answered questions which are asked to the learner. If the questions already have answers why ask them? This book asks the fundamental question, how do we design learning contexts in which learners are invited into the conversations that are taking place between experts in any field of study. When we invite students to wrestle with these questions we are including them in authentic learning experiences because they, like the experts must engage in the struggle to find a solution to an unanswered question. What could be more inspirational?

Would heavily recommend to anyone involved in curriculum development, but quite useful for all teachers and parents as well. While Arthur's writing style is accessible and quite pleasant to read and I would recommend you simply read the whole book, you can jump ahead to Chapter Six if you want to unlock the most information in the fewest pages.

It opened up the notion that curriculum is fixed on a piece of paper but is truly everything. The way a teacher gathers the children, resolves conflicts, lines up to wash hands is curriculum. A good thought provoking read.

Ok, but not much practical use. I wish university courses would use texts that are practical for use in the elementary, secondary, and ideally even at the collegiate level. Unfortunately, under we develop much better partnerships between university education programs and the elementary and secondary educational systems, very little of what is useful and applicable to curriculum leaders will find its way into texts.
