Abstract

This article begins by presenting basic definitions (language class, course, program, curriculum, and curriculum development) and an overview of books written on the topic of curriculum development. It then goes on to discuss the underpinnings of curriculum (five historical approaches and four basic philosophies); the contexts of curriculum (including the levels and purposes for which it is done); the organization of curriculum (including ways to organize course content and people); information gathering for curriculum (including types of information, focus of information, and information-gathering tools); key questions in curriculum (who, what, and how); and the outcomes of curriculum (including audiences, dissemination, and benefits).
