In today’s multicultural and inclusive classrooms, educators are faced with more challenges than ever before. Besides   being interpreters and implementers of the curriculum, teachers need to understand curriculum design, curriculum approaches and models, legislation and prescribed policies. Curriculum studies in context offers sound, detailed and practical direction with reference to the CAPS, to help teachers to enhance teaching, learning and assessment.

Curriculum studies in context narrows the gap between the curriculum plan, instructional design and teaching practice. The views of Tyler, Stenhouse, Freire and various ubuntu theorists serve as a theoretical grounding for a deeper understanding of the teacher’s role as interpreter of the curriculum. Reference is made to the influence of contextual aspects, decolonisation, Africanisation and curriculum innovation.
