International Curricula: Important ......yes/no?

It is only obvious for me to choose to do an essay on this piece of reading since it is from my side of the world.....elementary school. It surely is an honor to interact with children in this part of the school as we happen to be the first impression makers in their minds which can be compared to a sponge all clean and new waiting to be dipped. Indeed it is these first few years which are important and stays with him till he takes on the world. So to help him understand what is expected of him and most of all to nurture his ever growing curiosity and sustain his love for learning a common curriculum is important.


  • Great Christina, to have your first level of thoughts. Maybe you want to compare your experience of curriculum planning with the PYP exercise - you have been involved in so much of the curriculum writing in the years in elem school. There are good books in the Teacher Resource Center on Curriculum as well as on Standards and of course Krishna Kumar's What is Worth Teaching. Just suggestions - feel free to go any way you choose! But go fast!!!
