Along the margins of your textbook in this week’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. Use it as the starting point for an analysis of
your chosen theorist and his or her relationship to curriculum programs such as
High Scope or Creative Curriculum. In a two- to three-page paper (plus
title and reference pages) include the following:
Your chosen quote and a summary of the philosophy of
your chosen theorist.
A well-researched summary of High Scope, Creative
Curriculum, or another comprehensive early childhood curriculum about
which you are familiar.
An analysis of how your curriculum does or does not
exemplify the tenets of your chosen theorist’s philosophy
