Naraian, Srikala – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
In any sociocultural context, efforts to promote inclusive education may evoke trajectories of change that are as unpredictable as they are inexhaustible, stimulating the production of a range of disability subjectivities, performances, and constructions. This article unearths such local constructions by focusing on the experiences of…

Battey, Dan – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
While mathematics education gives access to elite universities, higher-paying jobs, and the accumulation of wealth, it continues to be framed as a neutral curricular domain.

This article reports the development of integrated arts curriculum in two Hong Kong secondary schools over a 9-year period.

Marquez, Rigoberto; Brockenbrough, Ed – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
For nearly 2 decades, lawsuits filed on behalf of students who have endured anti-queer bias in schools have resulted in favorable verdicts and settlements for the plaintiffs, thus spurring an increasing number of school districts across the United States to establish antidiscrimination policies and other initiatives to protect students from…

Dutro, Elizabeth; Selland, Makenzie – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
A significant body of research articulates concerns about the current emphasis on high-stakes testing as the primary lever of education reform in the United States.

Gough, Steve; Stables, Andrew – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
The argument challenges dominant approaches to education for sustainability through adopting a theoretical framework grounded in broad ontological realism but epistemological relativism, consonant with both Darwin and a fully semiotic account of living and learning (Stables & Gough, 2006; Stables, 2005, 2006). This framework draws together strands…

Vagle, Mark D.; Jones, Stephanie – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
Using Maurice Merleau-Ponty's (1947/1964) phenomenological notion of the "threads of intentionality" that tie subject and object together meaningfully and Pierre Bourdieu's (1986, 2000; Bourdieu & Waquant, 1992) reflexive sociology and constructs of "habitus," "field," "capital," and "nomos," we theorize social class-sensitivity in literacy…

Sonu, Debbie – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
From a yearlong qualitative study, I propose an explanation for the growing frustration amongst educators and students who find their imaginings for a social justice education largely unmet, if not deliberately crushed, in the public school classroom. I argue that competing conceptions of social justice manifest as public performances as well as…

Lewkowich, David – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
As the boundaries of the body, the vicissitudes of psychic life, and the bonds of social existence can hardly themselves be regarded as straightforward facts, the everyday movements of teaching and learning likewise defy and resist understanding. There is always that which interferes, that which makes of education a problem of affect and human…

Clement, Neville D.; Lovat, Terence – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
The burgeoning knowledge of the human brain generated by the proliferation of new brain imaging technology from in recent decades has posed questions about the potential for this new knowledge of neural processing to be translated into "usable knowledge" that teachers can employ in their practical curriculum work. The application of the findings…

Fallace, Thomas – Curriculum Inquiry, 2012
In this historical study the author argues that the most influential pre-World War I educational theorists subscribed to different forms of the recapitulation theory that conceptualized non-White cultures as childlike, prior steps toward the more advanced, industrialized West. The author demonstrates how the pedagogies of William Torrey Harris,…
