After reading chapter 10 you should have a good idea of what quality early childhood curricula looks like. Explain the role of play in curriculum development using specific examples from at least three types of curriculum. The textbook suggests that curriculum is somewhere in between these two types: First, “curriculum is developed very close to the classroom and is highly open-ended, flexible, and responsive to individual children. Teachers plan instruction to fit the needs of individual children and the class as a whole, building on and responding to children’s interests, motivation, and understanding”. Second, “curriculum is developed at a distance from the classroom and is highly prescribed. Teachers pace instruction to ensure the curriculum scope and sequence is covered so that children are exposed to and learn concepts that prepare them for formal assessment and learning goals and expectations.” Quality curriculum will never be just the second type. Assuming teachers are allowed to deviate in the second type, explain, in your own words, what the teacher’s role is for both types to be true. Textbook referencing is required. You may use APA or MLA style.
