Salter, Peta – Curriculum Inquiry, 2014
The refocussing of Australia-Asia relations is manifest in a combination of national policy moves in Australia. Parallel shifts have been made in Europe, the United States, Canada and New Zealand. In Australia, the curricular response to this shift has become known as "Asia literacy." This study is drawn from a wider project that…

Segall, Avner; Burke, Kevin – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
While it is true that following various Supreme Court decisions in the last century, religion is, in most cases, no longer explicitly taught in public school classrooms, we use this article to explore the ways in which implicit religious understandings regarding curriculum and pedagogy still remain prevalent in current public education. Building…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
In this article, I (1) argue for approaching processes, events-in-the-making, by means of process categories--to learn, to teach--not by means of categories that denote differences in state and (2) exemplify doing and writing research consistent with process philosophy. To understand process we must not think, research, and write them in terms of…

Gay, Geneva – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
This discussion examines some of the major issues and attributes of culturally responsive teaching. It begins with explaining my views of culturally responsive teaching and how I incorporate cultural responsiveness in my writing to teach readers what it means. These general conceptual frameworks are followed by a discussion of some specific…

Maheux, Jean-Francois; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
There is considerable agreement about the fact that the presence of researchers in the classroom mediates teaching and learning. Why "should" two very different forms of human activity, one designed to study the other, interact and mediate each other? In this article, we propose cultural-historical activity theory as a framework for understanding…

Britzman, Deborah P. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
With the question of what is between psychoanalysis and pedagogy, this essay presents a psychoanalytic frame for thinking about the study of uncertainty in teaching and learning from the vantage of the education of the author and her notion of "difficult knowledge." I review my body of research through these dilemmas to picture a theory of…

Walshaw, Margaret – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
Pedagogy within mathematics classrooms is of keen interest in any educational discussion. On a wider scale, pedagogical practice that produces desirable outcomes is considered a major instrument for achieving national objectives. Circumstance and setting may vary, but the question relating to how mathematics teachers construct their practice is as…

Liew, Warren Mark – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
This article develops the familiar metaphor of teaching as performance towards a definition of "teaching as performative act," where words and actions aim to effect cognitive, affective, and behavioral changes in learners. To what extent, however, are the consequences of pedagogical actions commensurate with their intended effects? Can a science…

Burdick, Jake; Sandlin, Jennifer A. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
In a 2009 American Educational Research Association session on the topic of public pedagogy, Bill Ayers, serving as the session's discussant, posed the problem of public pedagogy being so broadly conceptualized in the literature base that it might actually become meaningless. Ayers's concern centered on the slippery, ever-proliferating meanings of…

Martin, Christopher – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
This article explores the extent to which and ways in which philosophical ethics can make an educational contribution to teachers' understanding of their practice as a distinct moral domain. Philosophical ethics is argued to facilitate two necessary features of teachers' moral understanding of their practice. First, it promotes awareness of the…

Loughran, John – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
It is uncommon for an academic to be asked to review ideas developed in his own books (with a particular focus on Loughran, 2006, 2010; Loughran, Berry, & Mulhall, 2012). However, considering the focus of the journal, the editor was interested in pursuing the theme encapsulated in these works--the notion of pedagogy. As this review illustrates,…

Airton, Lee – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
In this article I make a conceptual intervention in the idea that queer children and youth have needs that differ from those of other children and youth on the basis of their gender or sexuality alone, and that doing well by them requires adults to act on the basis of this difference. Namely, I examine the conflation of "fighting school…

Santoro, Doris A. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
This article offers a model of the relationship between three dimensions of integrity in teaching: personal integrity, professional integrity, and the integrity of teaching and illustrates the model through interview excerpts from 13 experienced former teachers. I argue that experienced teachers' decisions to leave work they love can be…

Moroye, Christy M.; Ingman, Benjamin C. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
This article suggests a framework for evaluating and implementing environmental education (EE) curricula in hopes of furthering EE as a mode of living to be embodied, rather than as a subject to be learned. We argue that the current iterations of EE in K-12 schools stand to benefit by attending to Dewey's criteria for educative experience:…
