Week 1 DQ 1 Teaching Philosophy and Curriculum
Review the major curriculum models and approaches discussed in the chapters this week (e.g. Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Creative Curriculum, etc.). Which model/approach most closely matches your own teaching philosophy? Explain why. Then, suppose that you have started a new teaching position and the curriculum you have been asked to use differs significantly from your teaching philosophy. Explain how you will address this difference. Your initial discussion post should be at least 200 words in length.
