I believe that a conceptual framework that is based on a Dichotomous Framework will permit practitioners to … I also have a second manuscript that is published via Smashwords.com. It presents a “few” relevant theories in the context of facilitating student-centered and teacher-centered learning (i.e. curriculum). Best wishes, Ken
