Ted Aoki’s Curriculum Perspectives and Their Implications for Indonesian EFL Teaching
Curriculum as the standard guide that sets expectations for student learning achievement and teacher accountability has become central to the Indonesian education system. The instability of curriculum and the centralized approach of the educational system have become challenges for education in Indonesia. Often teachers are snared between ministry-planned curriculum and their own experiences and knowledge. Ted Aoki (2004), a Canadian curriculum scholar, introduced the concept of curriculum as a lived experience to describe the situation that teachers experience worldwide. This article discusses the Indonesian national curriculum within the lens of Aoki’s lived experience curriculum concept, specifically in English language teaching.
