Abstract

The study discusses the implementation of Beane’s model of student-centred curriculum integration via the professional narrative of a primary school principal who implemented the model in Aotearoa/New Zealand. The findings show that implementing student-centred curriculum integration in contexts that are meaningful and relevant to students has the capacity to significantly enhance the value and impact of students’ learning. In the process, the democratic design of Beane’s model allows issues of diversity, inclusion and social justice to be successfully tackled by empowering students to ‘make a difference’ in their communities.
