Secondly, consider the changing political landscapes and the effects this may have on your own and the current UK Government’s values and philosophies that shape policies on curriculum content and coverage.
Thirdly, evaluate curriculum models and critique accordingly; considering the particular local context you may be in and /or also with particular learners in mind.
Fourthly, use a wide range of literature but focus on substance rather than name dropping.

Introduction
What is a curriculum? How might it differ from a syllabus
Curriculum perspectives
Additionally, talk through the national primary curriculum in the UK (Check Alexander, 2010:10 – good for what he thinks the N/C should be and for critiquing current N/C). People like Alexander, who argue against a curriculum would argue for a skills and process type of model (Pross model and a skills-based curriculum). So they aren’t just think about that academic route of knowledge and also narrow knowledge – does this meet the needs of all learners?)
When thinking about who says the N/C is good or bad, think about why they are saying it, and why they think it is good or bad – thinking about different perspectives
