The National English Curriculum: Understanding the development, interpretation and implementation of disciplinary knowledge

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project examines processes involved in developing Australia's national English curriculum at national and state levels as well as implementation in schools and classrooms, in order to increase understanding of how disciplinary knowledge (in this case, subject English) is generated, institutionalised, construed, and applied in classrooms. A major interest is the role of social networks in this process. Outcomes include explicating how disciplinary knowledge in education initiatives moves through and is transformed by networks across national, state and local levels; modelling the structural context of this process; and expanding knowledge to other education areas where national curriculum initiatives are developing.
