DO: In the Common Core Forum, write your own thoughts of what educational philosophies you see embedded in the Common Core State Standards and why.
Respond to this core forum: The main educational philosophy that I see embedded in the Common Core Standards is progressivism because it is an educational philosophy that stresses active learning through problem-solving, projects, and hands-on experiences. The Common Core Standards also “focuses on developing the critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills students need to succeed.” Both educational philosophies focus on critical thinking and problem solving to ensure students are ready for today’s entry-level careers or freshman courses in colleges and universities. As well, I feel like both philosophies emphasize student-led activities.
