Transcript of Three Types of Curriculum

Three Types of Curriculum
Hidden Curriculum
Hidden curriculum: practices and procedures resulting from decisions made when implementing the explicit curriculum, unintended outcomes that occur as the explicit curriculum is implemented. Various aspects of learning contribute to the success of the hidden curriculum, including practices, procedures, rules, relationships and structures. Many aspects of learning give rise to aspects of the hidden curriculum. These sources are, but not limited to, the social structures of the classroom, the teacher's exercise of authority, rules governing the relationship between teachers and students and standard learning activities.
Absent Curriculum
Absent/null curriculum: curricular aspects excluded (either intentionally or unintentionally from classroom instruction that are appropriate to the explicit curriculum. The null curriculum is what is not taught. Not teaching some particular idea or sets of ideas may be due to mandates from higher authorities, to a teacher's lack of knowledge, or to deeply ingrained assumptions and biases. Teachers and schools may be under pressure not to teach evolution.
Explicit Curriculum
Explicit curriculum: formal/stated mandated curricula that contain explicit steps and procedures to follow for proper implementation; stated and intended outcomes. Explicit curriculum is what is intentionally presented as the basic material of schooling. Explicit curriculum, or "overt" or "official" curriculum, entails the lesson plans to follow, their sequence and their objectives.
Three Types of Curriculum
Curriculum has three important components: (1)the intended outcomes, (2) what is taught, and (3)the manner of implementation. Curriculum is defined: planned learning experiences with intended outcomes while recognizing the importance of possible unintended outcomes. There are three types of curriculum: (1) explicit (stated curriculum), (2) hidden (unofficial curriculum), and (3) absent or null ( excluded curriculum).
