Assignment: Comparing Educational Philosophies
These short videos on “the daily mile” relate to our study of the Japanese preschool. and the amount of physical activity built into the program. In first grade (not kindergarten) in Japan, there is 20 minutes of wild free play outside between each academic subject. They never talk about ADHD (hyperactivity) in Japanese preschool and in England they find students’ academic scores go up since they began running the mile in the morning before classes.
This is an essay.
Assignment: Maria Montessori and Japanese Preschool.
Focus of this assignment: You will have an opportunity to evaluate two quite different ways to teach and work with preschool children in two different cultures. Please read readings 1, 2, 3, and 4 and write a discussion posting that compares and contrasts these two philosophies of education.
Guiding questions: I am asking you to compare a written essay about Montessoriâ€s teaching ideas a century ago (early 1900s) with the Japanese Preschool program today. Quite a comparison! We do not have lots of information, but I believe you can still learn a lot about the range of programs that can help children prepare necessary skills for school and for fitting into their societies. The guiding questions are provided so you have an idea of important issues in this assignment.
Length of posting: Your posting should be two pages, double spaced, APA, with Abstract. A little more length is fine. I am more concerned about your interest and thoughts about the ideas. (Too short would be one-half page, double spaced!)
NB: We do not resell papers. Upon ordering, we do an original paper exclusively for you.
