Ideas for seminar on mathematics curriculum

I'm writing to see if anyone is willing to offer ideas for readings
or assignments for a doctoral seminar on "curriculum" for mathematics
education students. I am beginning to plan for my spring teaching
and am curious to know what sorts of curriculum seminars others on
this list-serve may have offered to doctoral-level students.

Our doctoral students typically have math teaching experience at one
or more grades K-12, although some are primarily interested in
elementary school math, others in middle or high school math, and a
few in college-level mathematics. We have a significant number of
international students. All of these students will be mixed in the
same class. We have a heavy focus in our doctoral program on teacher
education (K-12). It has been our experience that graduates of our
program are almost always expected to work with prospective teachers
when they are hired as junior faculty. Our graduates are hired by
both Math Departments and Schools of Education. They typically are
asked to teach math courses for teachers, math methods courses for
teachers, and to supervise the work in schools of field experience
students or student teachers (as well as doing research and service
in these areas).

I would be very interested in receiving copies of reading lists that
others may have used in similar courses and also suggestions for

Thanks in advance for the advice.
