Sample text

Teachers no longer engage in prolonged consideration of important curricular questions about responding to student learning needs such as what kinds of language, activity, and texts might support learning. Instead, the program largely replaces this interpersonal process; the identity of the teacher is displaced COUNTERPOINT: Judith T. Lysaker to make room for the talk, action, and ideology of a program. The teacher’s sense of connection to the curriculum, ways of knowing, sense of competence, curiosity, and caring about the subject as well as a regard for the curricular endeavor as interesting and important are disrupted.

They meet that subject on an interpersonal plane in which dialogic exchanges between the voices encoun­ tered in the study of the subject contribute to the ongoing growth of their knowledge and experience of that subject. Indeed, as Parker Palmer (1983) suggested, the relationship that teachers have with subjects is what students most profoundly grasp in the learning context. In this way, teachers’ relation­ ships with their curricula and their subjects mediate and shape students’ rela­ tionships with that same curriculum and the subject matter that is being investigated.

Curricula in this case not only include lesson plans but also detail the teaching, students’ learning and ways of assessing their learning, and how each of these pieces fit together. Curriculum writers of instructional programs need to do the following: •• Write instruction in accordance with state and federal guidelines. •• Support differentiated instruction to meet the needs of a variety of learners. •• Know and include the latest educational research on learning and motivation. •• Set clear and realistic expectations of teachers and students.
