Q 1.  Discuss the concept and scope of Curriculum.  (20) The idea of curriculum is hardly new – but the way we understand and theorize it has altered over the years – and there remains considerable dispute as to meaning. It has its origins in the running/chariot tracks of Greece. It was, literally, a course. In Latin curriculum was a racing chariot; currere was to run. A useful starting point for us here might be the definition offered by John Kerr and taken up by Vic Kelly in his standard work on the subject. Kerr defines curriculum as, ‘All the learning which is planned and guided by the school, whether it is carried on in groups or individually, inside or outside the school. Learning is planned and guided. We have to specify in advance what we are seeking to achieve and how we are to go about it. The definition refers to schooling. We should recognize that our current appreciation of curriculum theory and practice emerged in the school and in relation to other schooling ideas such as subject and lesson. Definition no.1 Curriculum refers to a set of courses and content that students go through in their schooling. A curriculum prescribes a general syllabus of study detailing the list of topics that must be understood, as well as also giving the age and comprehension level at which the courses must be delivered to students. Definition no.1 As early as 1918, there was a textbook on teaching curriculum–“The Curriculum” by John Franklin Bobbitt–and it forms the basis of much of what has been developed to date. The term “curriculum” derives from the Latin for “race-course”; as such, the textbook outlines the course of deeds and experiences which children in an education system should go through–both in and out of school–in order to be responsible adults in a society. The author intended to develop a scope of study that was directed in order to deliberately deliver an educational course of planned and unplanned experiences to help in the formation of adult members of society. Definition no.3 All the learning which is planned and guided by the school, whether it is carried on in groups or individually, inside or outside the school. Kerr defines curriculum as, “All the learning which is planned and guided by the school, whether it is carried on in groups or individually, inside or outside of school.” (John Kerr) Place of Teaching Curriculum In a formal education system, there are always coursework and content that is offered at a school from the lowest level all the way to the university. A teaching curriculum is either partly or completely determined by external bodies. Each schooling entity may also adjust the teaching curriculum so that it is localized, addressing local situations as much as possible. Those in charge of developing teaching curricula always look ahead in order to have them adjusted accordingly, so they meet and influence emerging trends. Curriculum as a subject based: Many people still equate a curriculum with a syllabus. Syllabus, naturally, originates from the Greek (although there was some confusion in its usage due to early misprints). Basically it means a concise statement or table of the heads of a discourse, the contents of a treatise, the subjects of a series of lectures. In the form that many of us will have been familiar with it is connected with courses leading to examinations – teachers talk of the syllabus associated with, say, the Cambridge Board French
