Description


Expanding Curriculum Research and Understanding discusses the use of multiple research approaches (paradigms) to inquire into all aspects of curriculum (the knowledge base of schooling), with the goal of understanding the processes and the substantive dimensions of curriculum. The Mytho-Poetic approach, which is an overarching research approach/perspective (paradigm), considers the spiritual aspects of curriculum as well as scientific, interactive (pragmatic), phenomenological, and critical approaches to curriculum inquiry. Mytho-Poets, such as Dr. Haggerson, report research findings and discoveries in numerous ways, such as narratives, stories, poetry, visual art, music, symbols, dramas, autobiographies, and biographies. Section I of this book provides the theoretical research underpinnings while Section II contains examples of research using the Mytho-Poetic perspective.
