Philosophical Foundations of Curriculum
- Analyze the major philosophies described in the textbook (e.g., idealism, realism, etc.). Then discuss three primary goals of the school district in which you work (or one with which you are most familiar) and determine which philosophy is reflected by these goals. (Note: Helpful information may be available on the school district’s Website.)
- Debate It: Take a position for or against this statement: The U.S. should establish a required core curriculum that includes liberal arts, science, math, and technology that must be met for high school graduation. Provide a rationale to support your response.
