the curriculum trap
Posted by halshop on 20 February 2011
I believe we are, as a society, in the process of reconceptualizing and redefining what it means to be educated, what it means to get a college degree, and what a college degree means when you have it. Part of that shift is rethinking our curriculum, particularly in traditional academic disciplines such as math and English.
This Sean McFarland video does a nice job of putting this all in context, especially for those of us living, teaching, and learning in California.
The discussion raises all kinds of questions and ideas and I will be posting more on it and related topics in the near future.
