Complete the following:
1. Select one movement from prior to 1980 that you think still has impact on curriculum today and explain why.

I believe the Activity Movement has impacted curriculum today. The Activity Movement emphasized students’ experiences, projects, themes, interdisciplinary studies, situational lessons, and focuses on attitudes and beliefs. Some of today’s curriculums revolve around keeping students engaged with real life situations, units with themes and allowing students a choice on projects they complete depending on their learning style.

2. Select one movement from 1980 onward that is directly affecting your work in the classroom today and explain how.

Whole language movement is the belief that learning to read should be as natural as learning to speak. In teaching Spanish, I do not focus on the phonics of the words but on the meaning. The students learn new vocabulary by seeing the words in context, repeating the words several times and finally applying the words. Also when teaching grammar I do not focus on the grammatical breakdown of the structures. Students learn grammar in context and then apply that grammar to another context.

3. Select one movement from the list on pages 31-32 that should have impact today as we prepare students for the 21st century and explain why. Excellence Movement should have impact today as we prepare students for the 21st century. The educational aim of the excellence movement is focusing on standards and focusing on a technological nation. We are technology based society and preparing our students for that will greatly benefit them in the future. Mostly all curriculums are standard driven. We set out a series of standards that our students must meet and that all lessons revolve around those standards.
