Types of Curriculum Operating in Schools

Allan Glatthorn (2000) describes seven types of curriculum operating in the schools:

1. recommended curriculum - proposed by scholars and professional organizations

2. written curriculum - appears in school, district, division or country documents

3. taught curriculum - what teachers implement or deliver in the classroom and schools

4. supported curriculum - resources-textbooks, computers, audio-visual materials which support and help in the implementation of the curriculum

5. assessed curriculum - that which is tested and evaluated

6. learned curriculum - what the students actually learn and what is measured

7. hidden curriculum - the unintended curriculum

(Activity: Visit a school of your choice. Observe and interview the appropriate persons (teachers, students, principals)and identify the existence of the different curricula. Write specific examples).
