    This unit introduces students to the notion of curriculum as a contested field. In so doing the unit examines the different levels of curriculum, including the official, written, enacted and received, and the social and political influences upon curriculum. From this broader perspective the unit introduces specific elements of, and consideration in, curriculum enactment, including designing lessons.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Critically analyse contested understandings of curriculum;

    2. Account for the influence of social and political considerations upon curriculum;

    3. Understand and apply principles of curriculum in designing lessons; and

    4. Understand and apply a knowledge of their students and school context in designing lessons.
