"Justaposition" is not a word. "Juxtaposition" is.
Student or Learner
Can you tell me the theme of this paragraph? It seems to mean to add more out-of-class experience to formal education. Does the underlined mean you should parallelize other things like "language practices, cultural norms,etc" alongside school curriculum? What's juxtapositions? Sorry for so many questions, but I had to type a lot.
ex)Curriculum shapes what students know and how they come to know. Therefore, attention to developmental considerations in curriculum concerns not only the organization of content for schoolwork. It also involves juxtapositions of language practices, cultural norms and ideals, student experience, and other social conditions that can influence the ways in which students restructure knowledge. For example, a commonly practiced belief is that students' lives outside of school are left at the classroom door and teachers should overcome student experience outside of school. However, references to subject areas in curriculum come from a variety of places outside of school and these fragmental external references may have more to do with student understandings of a subject than do formal thinking and logical, sequential, written curriculum.

In a nutshell, it means don't look at these things all in isolation, but look at how they work together in creating your view of the whole student
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
