This study aims to explore development of school-based required curriculum. From the perspective of ＂Actor-Network Theory (ANT),＂ the study adopted the Qualitative Research Methods - Participatory Observation and Document Analysis to interpret the development process of curriculum, which includes four stages: problematization, interessement, enrollment, and mobilisation. The results of the study found that (1) ANT, regarded as a viewpoint and a way of intervention, was applicable to deal with complex networks that generated revolutions or innovations. (2) Curriculum design was developed in school community. In the various types of relationships including the viewpoints of both human and non-human, a coordinator mobilized others, and played the role as a mediator to translate and win supports, to form self-generated networks.
