- In this huge educational world, where does curriculum fit in? How important are government and district imposed guidelines? I strongly believe there be some sort of guidelines set-up because we cannot just teach what we would like to but in the best interest of the students, how much of what we chose to teach them is meaningful? How are we the all-knowing teachers going to chose what is going to impact them for the rest of their lives and what is necessary for them to be better people? In my teaching Freddy Jr where the comma goes in a sentence really going to give him happiness in life? Moreover, I am sure the students all have great interests in which they would like to pursue without a nagging teacher breathing down there necks about commas or grammar.
Where shall we draw the line and say this is not necessary for my student's future? Of course I think it is very appropriate to learn how to properly communicate in society, but then again what is proper? The way I talk or the way you talk?
