The last four chapters emphasize the application of curriculum planning skills for educational programs for children, early, middle, and late adolescents, and adult and senior learners. At all levels, current issues, innovations, and trends are examined from both theoretical and practical viewpoints. For anyone interested in curriculum development and planning.
