An examination of the development and implementation of the new curriculum in Irish primary schools from a sociocultural perspective: the case of process writing
Willoughby, Karen Marguerite-Anne
THESIS 9122 This study focuses on a single case of curriculum change in Irish primary education, namely the case of the process writing curriculum introduced to Irish primary schools in 1999. The process writing curriculum (GOI, 1999b, 1999c) was among a multitude of curriculum reforms simultaneously introduced into Irish primary schools with the launch of the 'revised' curriculum for primary schools in 1999 (GOI, 1999a). A review of the literature strongly indicated that, as with other curricular reforms officially launched in 1999, the process curriculum was the product and subject of an unprecedented period in the history of curriculum change in Irish education, at the level of curriculum design, implementation support, funding and anticipated school level and individual teacher change. A review of literature and studies of this unprecedented period of curriculum change, however, indicated that research on this period was limited.
