Lawrence, Ann M. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
In this article, I review influential contributions made by writing-studies researchers to the research literature on literacy sponsorship.

Eisner, Elliot – Curriculum Inquiry, 1984
Schwab's work in curriculum planning emphasizes the need for eclecticism and the legitimacy of an uncertain, practical orientation.
