Abstract

This article analyzes the complexity of transforming the curriculum ideals embodied in reform initiatives into syllabus documents, with a particular focus on the call for developing generic skills, values and attitudes. The central argument is that the transformation is fundamentally a conceptual endeavor requiring serious curriculum work which has to deal with issues concerning content selection, organization and framing. It entails a need to rethink and re-conceptualize curriculum content in view of curriculum ideals. Implications are discussed concerning the challenges of curriculum transformation in the current emergent curricular landscape in Singapore.
