Here are the Instructions:
Your beliefs influence your actions. Your personal belief system — your philosophy of education — will determine what values you emphasize, how you organize and manage your classroom, what content you stress, and which teaching methods you use. In order to develop your personal philosophy of education, think about the following questions:
(1) How do you view the role of school in society? What are the purposes of education? How do we assure that schools serve all students well?
(2) How do you view the student? What is the student's role in his/her education? How do we assure that all students are prepared to assume that role?
(3) How do you view the role of the teacher? How is this consistent with the above beliefs? What are the primary responsibilities of the teacher in a society that values diversity?
4) How will you design your curriculum, instruction and classroom management so that it will best maximize the learning of the very diverse population of students you can expect to find in your classrooms?
You have to write about Progressivism and answer the above questions.
This is the definition of progressivism:
Progressivism is based largely on the belief that lessons must be relevant to the students in order for them to learn. The curriculum of a progressivist school is built around the personal experiences, interests, and needs of the students.
