El-Sherif, Lucy; Sinke, Mark – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
What are the pedagogical encounters through which we learn about hierarchies of citizenship and the positions to which we belong in a nation?

Navarro, Oscar – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
Since the passing of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), neoliberal policies, such as standardized curriculum, high-stakes tests, accountability measures, school choice, charter schools, value-added models and school privatization have pushed social justice teaching to the margins.

Scarbrough, Burke – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
Sociologists of elite education have argued that understanding educational inequality requires looking beyond persistent class- or race-based gaps in academic achievement at the ways in which privileged youth and families construct their advantages. Meanwhile, scholars focused on summer learning have argued that understanding educational…

Harrison, Neil; Bodkin, Frances; Bodkin-Andrews, Gawaian; Mackinlay, Elizabeth – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
Student capacities to actively listen, sense and feel are often relegated to lower order skills in an education system increasingly governed by measurable outcomes.

Stoddard, Jeremy – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
The notion that embedded meanings exist within media, and are informed by particular ideologies, is far from new. Analyses of curriculum, however, rarely examine empirically the role of these ideologies or the context of production. Instead, the ideologies are attributed to a "producer" representing particular power relationships or…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Maheux, Jean-François – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
Standard approaches to thinking in the mathematics curriculum depict it as the result of some stable constructions in the mind of the person, constructions that are the results of individual efforts in the mind of subjects or of collective efforts that are then appropriated by and into the mind of individuals. Such work does not appreciate what…

Kuttner, Paul J. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
Arts education does more than transfer the skills and knowledge needed to create artistic works. It also helps to shape young people's orientations towards participation in the cultural life of their communities.

Choo, Suzanne S. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2014
When world literature as a subject was introduced to schools and colleges in the United States during the 1920s, its early curriculum was premised on the notion of bounded territoriality which assumes that identities of individuals, cultures, and nation-states are fixed, determinable, and independent. The intensification of global mobility in an…
