Six types of curriculum

Now that you are thinking through your educational philosophy and understanding more about your students learning preferences, now let’s think through curriculum.

Per Dr. Sherri L Wynn, Ed.D. author of How to Pick the Right Teaching Strategy for Children and Teens, (pg 24) the world seems to have accepted the tem curriculum as an all-inclusive name for whatever content is being taught, I believe it’s important to create categories of curriculum according to type rather than subject matter.
