Books (to order online - Amazon.ca or Amazon.com)  REQUIRED!  
You may find either of these books with other publishers - as long as it is the same title and author - not a problem.  These are the copies I have
and they are priced quite reasonably. If you order online and they don't arrive right away - no problem.  You do eventually need to read them. 
They are the "classics" in the field of curriculum and you'll find them very beneficial for your overall understanding of the subject.
