dc.description.abstract Curriculum considerations in the 21st century frequently debate the role subject content knowledge plays in the enactment of curriculum. Curriculum-in-action may differ in the ways in which it is reflected in engagements between teachers and learners at different times and in different contexts. This chapter illustrates ways the Aotearoa New Zealand curricular documents are attempting to lay the foundations for holistic curricula that consider knowledge development as part of a much broader agenda for enabling children to be and become positive, caring and contributing citizens. It presents a discussion between the authors, in a dialogue across sectors, in an effort to understand how teachers engage with content in various ways in early childhood and primary education. Drawing on the domains of biology and drama, we develop a “complicated conversation” (Pinar, 2011, p. 1) about curriculum, built on a young child’s query about snails, to illustrate and raise queries about potential curricular experiences in the early childhood and primary sectors. The chapter considers ways these examples of enactment meet the curricular documents’ aims of fostering confident, capable learners connected to communities and developing identities as responsible and caring citizens and lifelong learners who may make a valued contribution to the social, cultural, economic and environmental well-being of New Zealand. We argue that these kinds of engagements and outcomes are more complex and important than accessing information via an internet search engine. en
