1. Franklin Bobbit (1876-1956) - presented curriculum as a science that emphasizes on students need.
2.Werret Charters (1875-1952) - like Bobbit, to Charters curriculum is a science. It gives emphasis on students needs.

Psychological Foundations on Curriculum
Psychology provides a basis for the teaching and learning process.
Three groups of learning theories:
Behaviorism or association theories
Cognitive-information processing theories
1. Behaviorist Psychology
dominated the 20th century
it includes among others connectionism of Edward Thorndike
influenced by Ralph Tyler and Hilda Taba - well known curricularist
Ivan Pavlov's classical conditioning and B.F Skinners operant conditioning were all behaviorist character.
Albert Bandura - modeling and observation theory is related to behavior.
Robert Gagne hierarchical learning or sets of behavior
and five learning outcomes include:
1. intellectual skills or ''knowing how'' to categorize and use symbols, forming concepts and problem solving.
2.informationg or "knowing what" knowledge about facts, dates and names.
3. cognitive strategies or learning skills
4. motor skills
5. attitudes, feelings and emotions learned through experiences
To the behaviorist, learning should be organized in order that students can experience success in the process of mastering the subject matter.
The method is introduced in a step by step manner with proper sequencing of task which is viewed by other educational psychologist as simplistic and mechanical.
2. Cognitive Psychology
These psychologist focus their attention on how individuals process information and how they monitor and manage thinking.
1. Jean Piaget for his Cognitive Development Stages.
2. Lev Vygostky for his Social Constructivism.
3. Howard Gardner for his Multiple Intellegences.
4. Felder and Silverman for his Learning Styles.
5. Daniel Goleman for Emotional Intellegences.
To the cognitive theorist, learning constitutes a logical method for organizing and interpreting learning .
These are exemplified by practices like reflective thinking, craetive thinking, intuitive thinking, discovery learning and many others.
Humanist psychologist are concerned with how learners can develop their human potential.
Traditional psychologist do not recognize humanistic psychology as a school psychology.
It is built on Gestalt psychology where learning can be explained in terms of the wholeness of the problem and where the environment is changing and the learner is continuosly reorganizing his or her perceptions.
Abraham Maslow theory of human needs for self actualizing persons.
Carl Rogers non directive lives also fall under humanistic psychology.
Psychology has a great influence in the curriculum.
Learners are not machines and the mind is not a computer.
The psychological foundations will help curriculum makers in nurturing a more advanced, more comprehensive and complete human learning.
Social Foundations of Education
School exist within the social context.
The home, the family, community likewise educate the people in the society.
Society as ever dynamic is source of evry fast changes which are difficult to cope with and to adjust to.
The relationship of curriculum and society is mutual and encompassing.
