Coverage carefully balances theory and practicality, draws inspiration from a wide range of disciplines and contexts, and incorporates the wisdom of practicing curriculum designers from this country and others.

"Overall this text ...advances our notions of curriculum. It incorporates reflective thinking, higher order thinking, and widens the conversation to include international commentaries and examples for learners. I think this is a must-read for all in the field of curriculum." - Valerie J.Janesick, Ph.D., University of South Florida - Tampa

"...Curriculum Wisdom strikes me as a book that holds real promise to those educators who seek deeper understanding and wider kinship for the feelings, beliefs, and actions they currently find themselves struggling with ...(it) presents a more comprehensive (and complex) theoretical understanding of democratic curriculum leadership..." - J. Dan Marshall, Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University
