Details In this paper, the author’s main objective is to model how one can employ three curriculum
models, curriculum as product, process and praxis, to critically analyze one’s curriculum, in
her case, an Advanced English course, to discover if the course is in line with one’s
educational philosophical beliefs. She begins with a detailed theoretical background of the
three different curriculum models, curriculum as product, curriculum as process and
curriculum as praxis. Next, she critically analyzes her own curriculum, through a narrative
reflection, at the level of design and implementation to discover how her curriculum is
informed by these models. Through analysis, she discovers that although in some respects her
curriculum achieves the goals of a curriculum as praxis, it fails to achieve them in many other
respects and instead contains many elements that fall under curriculum as process and
curriculum as product.
