Major Paper: Curricular Issues in Education

We have many critical issues facing education. Students will select one of the options below and

present a well-developed 5 page paper that focuses on a curricular issue in education. You must

cite at least sources (APA format).

Topics include:

a) Common Core State Standards

b) Student Learning

c) Technology

d) Social Media

e) Politics

f) High Stakes Testing

g) School Leadership

h) Pre-service Teaching Programs

i) School Climate

j) Poverty

Think about the following as you compose the paper:

1) How does this relate/impact/effect curriculum?

2) Examine content-specific curricular issues through relevant readings and discussions as it

pertains to the specific topic

3) Students’ developmental needs

4) How must educators work together to solve this issue?

5) What stakeholders are involved or should be involved?

You may focus on K-12 or specific grade bands. Everything relates to curriculum, so may sure

you are connecting the pieces of the puzzle.

Grammar, mechanics, and format play a role in this paper; however, the main portion of this

paper is based on the content. Everything should be based on your research findings. Do not

include personal opinion in this paper.

This will be worth 200 points.
