Cyclical curriculum theory: Its place in the development of contemporary law units
Dr David Newlyn
Along with assessment, curriculum is one of the most important aspects of education. This article examines the impact that a formal knowledge and understanding of the cyclical model of curriculum can have in the teaching of law units. An examination of the key points of the cyclical model of curriculum as espoused by Wheeler and Nicholls and Nicholls is undertaken. The article concludes with a discussion of the value the cyclical model of curriculum can have on the initial design and relevant changes to existing contemporary law units.
