Mathematics Assessment and Evaluation (July 1992)
Imperatives for Mathematics Educators
Thomas A. Romberg - Editor

Forms of Curriculum Inquiry
Forms of Curriculum Inquiry (July 1991)
Edmund C. Short - Editor

"This book represents a needed resource in the field of curriculum -- a handbook on research methodology. No other such book exists with a specific focus on curriculum research --does one exist with any such specific focus within the field of education to my knowledge. It will undoubtedly become a well-used reference book by students and scholars in curriculum. Two other very important strengths of the book are the extensive bibliography at the e...(Read More)
The Academic Crisis of the Community College
The Academic Crisis of the Community College (July 1991)
Dennis McGrath - Author
Martin B. Spear - Author

"What I like most about this book is that the authors do not see community colleges as being separate from other parts of post-secondary education. The usual view of two-year colleges is reductionist -- perceiving them exclusively in functional ways -- vocational, collegiate, remedial, etc. McGrath and Spear see community colleges as part of the full historical unfolding of educational institutions in the United States and, thus, critique them as...(Read More)

Jessie A. Roderick - Author

"The effect of this book is to communicate extremely well what it was like for each writer to move through the experience of understanding their own professional insights -- their curriculum for being. This has never been done before (to my knowledge) in a group context and with the intent of exhibiting the formal method of research by which this was done. It is at once personal, fascinating, profound, dramatic, and instructive." -- Edmund C...(Read More)

The Significance of Place
Joe L. Kincheloe - Editor
William F. Pinar - Editor

"I think this is one of the best books, one of the most original books, I have come across in a decade of reading and writing in the field of curriculum theory. It challenges the standard curriculum discourse's preoccupation with standardization, universalization, and objectivity." -- Henry A. Giroux, Miama University

"I enjoyed reading a book that said something concrete and that taught me something new. I was fascinated by both the thesis...(Read More)
