The Shadow Curriculum

by Pamela U. Brown - 2005

This chapter will explore the shadow curriculum and its connection to media literacy, first summarizing the kinds of marketing in schools that have become commonplace, including exclusive sales agreements between school districts and businesses, advertisements posted in schools and buses, and advertising forced on students and teachers through mandated television viewing. It will then move to a more in-depth examination of the shadow curriculum as it affects teachers’ decision making regarding curriculum, when such decision making is directly affected by the marketing of curriculum packages to teachers and administrators in public schools.
