In Ornstein, Pajak, and Ornstein, Veronica Boix Mannsilla and Howard Gardner discuss the advantage of the disciplinary approach to curriculum and instruction over the more traditional subject centered approach. Today we are in the standards movement and as such teachers are required to teach the standards. Wiles and Bondi present a good discussion of standards and teaching those standards; however, as Wiles and Bondi point out, “how the curriculum is treated determines the ‘meaning’ of that curriculum” (2015, p. 151). Compare the subject centered and discipline centered approaches, evaluate the argument of Mannsilla and Gardner related to these two approaches, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. Which approach, subject, or discipline do you see as working best within the standards movement of today? Why? Assignment 2 Grading Criteria Maximum Points Compared the similarities and differences between the subject matter approach and the disciplinary approach to curriculum. 7pts Evaluated the argument of Mannsilla and Gardner for the use of the disciplinary approach. 8pts Discussed the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. 7pts Provided a well-supported rationale for the use of either the subject centered or disciplinary to developing curriculum for the standards movement. 10pts Wrote in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrated ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; displayed accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
