Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the works of curriculum theorist, James B. Macdonald, to identify the trends of thinking that are reflected in his writing, to present the writer's personal and professional journey that led to an awareness of the impact of Macdonald's concepts on education, and to apply these concepts to a personal perspective of special education. To this end, biographic and autobiographic study was used as the method of inquiry. The principal method of investigation was personal interviews supplemented by study of the writings of Macdonald as well as scholars in the field of special education. The personal and professional journey of the writer was based on recollection of past events and experiences.
