Curriculum Development in Bilingual Education

This course is designed to expose students to issues pertaining to the historical and theoretical foundations of curriculum studies in general, and of bilingual curriculum, in particular. The course will briefly trace the history of curriculum studies and then, delve in the theory, application, design, development and implementation of bilingual curriculum. Through the study of pertinent literature, students will develop a theoretical and practical framework and become familiar with the processes involved in the bilingual education curriculum. Students will explore what schools teach to language learners, what should they teach and who should decide about it; what is the primary aim of bilingual education; and what beliefs, values, or attitudes are learned from the way bilingual classrooms are.
