Describe intended and enacted curriculum and they relate to each other
The intended curriculum is the open curriculum that is acknowledged in policy statements as that which schools or other educational institutions or arrangements set out to accomplish while enacted curriculum refers to the actual curricular content that students engage in the classroom.
The intended curriculum may include the unspoken or implicit academic, social, and cultural messages that are communicated to students while they are in school while enacted is regarded as formal and consists of the courses, lessons, and learning activities students participate in, as well as the knowledge and skills educators intentionally teach to students. The intended curriculum may or may not be part of the formal course of study for example, how they should interact with peers, teachers, and other adults; how they should perceive different races, groups, or classes of people; or what ideas and behaviors are considered acceptable or unacceptable. Tutors will have to conform to the curriculum that has been enacted by the ministry of education.
