TESOL II: Lineamientos Curriculares
This is going to be a task that prepares you for your first test. Your task is to evaluate the Colombian “Lineamientos Curriculares”. In order to evaluate them you need to compare this document to the three articles related to curriculum development for this semester: Finney’s article, Curriculum Theory and Practice and The Learner-Centered Curriculum chapters 1 and 2.
Read and analyze if the curricular background in Colombia is strong, if it reflects current trends, if it is a good starting point for teachers, if it is appropriate and updated for our setting and needs, and any other aspect that you consider is interesting, relevant or surprising.
Write your evaluation as a short essay where you show your own point of view about what curriculum should be in Colombia based on the documents and your experience in education.
