Defining Curricular Practices (Group Discussion)
Chalker (1996/2006) describes curricula in an alternative school or program to be innovative and diversified with complementing resources of support. Within your group, begin discussion of which type(s) of educational classes are necessary for your new innovative alternative education school or program needs. Use figures 6.1-6.7 to guide you as to which are most important in curriculum for your new innovative alternative education school or program (pp. 54-70).
For this discussion, argue for the one type of education class you think would be most effective for your new innovative alternative education school or program:
- Basic Skills Education
- Leisure Education
- Life Skills Education
- Affective Education
- Career Education
- Academic Enrichment
Remember to brainstorm your ideas and tell why this is important to the alternative education school or program you and your group have selected to design and create. Be sure to use resources to cite your opinions and ideas in APA style.
