EDD 638 The History Of Fads And Frills In Schools (Effective Fall 2011)
3 Lecture Hours; 1 Conference Hour; 4 Credits
Why do schools regularly adopt and abandon curricula and pedagogies? Why have some schooling practices become thoroughly embedded? This course seeks to understand the temporary and the seemingly permanent in education through an examination of historical cases of school reforms, some of which became essential school practices, others that cyclically appear in slightly different forms from time to time and still others that came and went.
