This paper should be a combination of philosophies, theories, and concepts learned in this course, and demonstrate how they apply to the early childhood classroom. The primary focus will be on the comprehensiveness of the many components that are necessary to consider when designing curriculum for a preschool or young child’s classroom.
For the Final Paper
- Select an age group (Pre-K, kindergarten, first grade, etc.).
- Identify and discuss the three theories and/or philosophies that reflect how you envision your classroom and curriculum.
- Provide a summary of the concepts you will teach in each academic area (math, reading, science, and the fine arts).
- Describe two specific activities for each academic area that will demonstrate how you will teach these concepts in a way that is representative of both the theories/philosophies you discussed and NAEYC or state standards.
