Philosophy of Using Authentic Curriculum

A curriculum is a guide for learning. Everyone who chooses or creates curriculum (or textbooks) needs to develop a personal philosophy of teaching and learning, examine the values and beliefs behind that philosophy, and design or select a curriculum that reflects those beliefs and values.

Compare three approaches to curriculum—traditional, learner-driven, and critical. Then begin to articulate your own philosophy of teaching and curriculum development.
