difference between traditional and progressive curriculum?
Weegy: The Traditional Curriculum is teacher-centered while Progressive Curriculum is student-centered. Progress education focuses on the child as a whole. Their cognitive, social and emotional development is the key to that child’s educational growth. [ If students are given the opportunity to design and construct their own learning, and build their own understanding and to integrate skills, information and concepts they In a progressive education, ethics and morality are important parts of the curriculum. The learning environment is low anxiety and high challenge. Students are met and guided towards where they want and need to be. In a traditional classroom, each child is treated the same, and students are assumed to all be equally ready for each level of instruction. Individual differences are ignored. Students are grouped by standardized methods of evaluation. The traditional educational environment, students are competing against each other, there is no time for students to show their individuality and mastery. Traditional education has been looked down upon by those favoring the progressive movement. Traditional education has its own basis of importance in our schools classrooms today. Traditionalism should be used to master the tools of power and authority. The ability to read, write and communicate, and to gain enough traditional knowledge to understand the world around them. Children, especially those who may be from a low socioeconomic lifestyle, should not be encouraged to follow natural inclinations which would only keep them ignorant and make them slaves to their emotions. ] (More)

similarities between traditional and progressive curriculum?
Weegy: Traditional vs. [ Progressive by Robert Pondiscio May 26th, 2010 Tags: Charles Murray, progressive education, traditional education Posted in Curriculum, Humor | 13 Comments » If you encourage students to express themselves, you’re teaching progressive English composition. You’re teaching a traditional curriculum, says Charles Murray, if you “make them diagram sentences and mark up their papers for grammatical and spelling errors. In red ink.” At AEI’s Enterprise Blog, Murray describes receiving an email from a teacher who wondered if he is teaching a traditional or progressive curriculum, since the terms are thrown around with little attempt to define them. Murray, offers no defintion, but with tongue clearly in cheek offers a few examples: Progressive science: Teach about how pollution affects the lives of all of us. Traditional: Teach chemistry, physics, and biology. Progressive American studies: Mention James Madison in a sentence and devote a chapter to Harriet Tubman. Traditional: Devote a chapter to James Madison and mention Harriet Tubman in a sentence (maybe a paragraph). Methinks he’s merely scratching the surface. Here are some Murray neglected to list: Traditional: “Miss Jones” Progressive: “Betty” Traditional: Rigor Progressive: Engagement Traditional: Pop quiz Progressive: Portfolio Traditional: State capitols Progressive: My community Traditional: “You’re suspended!” Progressive: “You need to reflect.” Traditional: Writing assignment Progressive: Writer’s notebook Traditional: a² + b² = c² Progressive: How tall is that tree? Here’s a kite, some string and a yardstick. Traditional: Eat your spinach. Progressive: Who picked your spinach? ] (More)
