Along the margins of your textbook in this weekâ€™s readings
are quotes from the following prominent early childhood theorists:
Froebel, Dewey, Montessori, Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Gardner, Rogers,
Pikler, Gonzalez-Mena, and Bowman and Moore. Choose one of these quotes
or one you find on your own from one of these theorists. You will also
choose a curriculum method with which you are familiar (e.g., High
Scope, Creative Curriculum, or any other comprehensive early childhood
curriculum). Please address the following:
- State your chosen quote and a summary of the philosophy of your chosen theorist.
- Summarize (with ample research-support) your chosen curriculum method.
- Analyze how your curriculum does or does not exemplify the tenets of your chosen theoristâ€™s philosophy.
Your paper must follow proper APA format, include a title and
reference page (in addition to the two- to three-page minimum), and must
reference your course text and at least two additional sources.
