Curriculum Studies in Atlantic Canada – my Book with Sean Wiebe
As a collection of personal insights of teachers engaged in scholarly work, Curriculum Studies in Atlantic Canada will be a collection of essays that detail the personal and living curriculum inquiry on day to day teaching in Atlantic Canada.
Editors Sean Wiebe and Lori Gard have compiled essays and chapters that represent the diversity of possibilities within personal and practitioner-focused curriculum study. Essays situated in everyday classroom experience that also consider the social significance of teacher reflection were of particular interest, including those concerned with the personal and political, the personal and historical, the personal and aesthetic, the personal and spiritual, and the personal and cultural.
Within these contexts of curriculum, Curriculum Studies in Atlantic Canada will be comprised of chapters that analyze, interrogate, and/or develop theories and practices along the following lines:
- personal change
- academic enrichment
- professional engagement
- educational empowerment
- social action
- progressive curriculum
- democratic involvement
We engage this work within a perspective that regards curriculum studies as integral to the fabric of everyday public life. This book is set to be published in early 2016.
