Curriculum Components

Education Today Issue 3, 2008 Term 2

We recognise that the below pedagogies and strategies are not mutually exclusive, and that some combination of them was likely to prove most effective

Progressive Education

Attending to the whole child - is concerned with helping children become good learners and people

Community - children learn with and from one another in a caring community, and that’s true of moral as well as academic learning

Collaboration - progressive schools are characterized by a “working with” model

Social justice - a sense of community and responsibility for others

Intrinsic motivation - the effect on students’ interest in learning, their desire to continue reading, thinking, and questioning is considered when setting educational policies and practices

Deep understanding - facts and skills do matter, but only in a context and for a purpose

Active learning - in progressive schools, students play a vital role in helping to design the curriculum

Taking kids seriously - taking a cue from the students and being attentive to differences among them

So what is intelligence anyway?
