A selective list of titles. Use Novanet and e-book collections such as, EBSCO's Academic e-Books to locate other helpful books and e-books.


Novanet is your principle resource for locating books, e-books, and other publications.  You can search using keywords, authors, titles, or subject headings. Subject headings relevant to the study of curriculum include:

  • critical pedagogy
  • culturally relevant pedagogy
  • curriculum - evolution
  • curriculum planning 
  • curriculum planning - moral and ethical aspects (example of a "focus")
  • education - curricula
  • education, elementary - curricula
  • middle school education - curricula
  • ....this list is not comprehensive

This list of journals and professional periodicals is not comprehensive. Use databases such as Education Source and ERIC to search for articles.  Education periodicals, not specific to curriculum design and studies, publish articles on curriculum as well.
