Abstract:

This book applies social theory to curriculum design and sets out a program
for language curriculum renewal for the 21st century. It includes many
examples of text-based curricula and describes a plan for curriculum renewal
based on texts as the unit of analysis for planning, for teaching and for
assessment. Underpinned by Halliday’s semiotic theory of language, the book
combines the theory of language as a resource for meaning-making with learning
language as learning to mean. The curriculum design constructs curriculum
around social practices and their texts rather than presenting language as
grammatical and lexical objects. This work will provide teachers, teacher
educators and curriculum planners with a curriculum model for teaching
children and adults in different contexts from preschool to adult education as
well as serving as a practical guide for students.
