This chapter identifies and analyzes the different ways in which a curriculum can be structured and organized. This involves addressing the following questions: When should the content be taught? Should it be organized around traditional academic disciplines, or around key issues or themes, or with reference to broad areas of study? Answers to these questions are heavily influenced by what is viewed as most worthwhile and should be learnt in schools. The concepts, scopeand sequence, relevant for analyzing the organization of the curriculum, are discussed. Then the author examines the cases for an integrated, core and modular curriculum which are essentially different approaches to organizing the curriculum, and which have become increasingly prevalent in the Hong Kong school curriculum in recent years.

Keywords:   scope, sequence, integration, core curriculum, modular curriculum
