Foundations of the Curriculum in the Schools
To know the nature of a school, one must have some understanding of the foundations underlying the curriculum development
Some people claim that when learning is occured, teaching has occured, and vice versa. We deny this, there can be learning where there has been no teaching, and good teaching can result in little or no learning at all. Without intent, there is no teaching. Thus is a basic thing in teaching. But learning can and does occur even when there is no teaching.
In the school, each child learns much more then he is taught as part of curriculum.Not all learning is the result of the planned experiences in the school. For practical purposes, no one has ever seen another learn, this is known as
"ice berg theory",
where we can see only the tip of te iceberg.

Last from birth ti approximately age two and is centered on the infant trying to make sense of the world. During the sensorimotor stage, infant's knowledge of the world is limited to his her sensory perceptions and motor activities. Behaviors are imited to simple motor responses caused by sensory stimuli. Children utilize skills and abilities they were born with (such as looking, sucking, grsping, and listening) to learn more about environment.
Pre Operational Stage
Occurs roughly between the ages two and seven. During the preoperational stage, children also become increasingly adept at using symbols, as evidence by the increase in playing and pretending.
Concrete Operational Stage
The concrete operational stages begins around age seven and continues until approximately age eleven. During this time, children gain better understanding of mental operations. Children begin to think about abstract concepts.
Formal Operational Stage
The Formal operational stage begins at approximately age twelve to and lasts into adulthood. During this time, people develop the ability to think about abstract concepts. Skills much as logical thought, deductive reasoning, and systematic planning also emerge during this stage.
Gagne advises that this capability to be stated in behavoiral terms at the outset.
one can the analyze the task into its pre-requisite capabilities, building pyramid of capabilities, toward the desired objective.
Education as a Social Activity
The contact with society in general, but moe importantly with his contacts with those whom he consider important affect the development of each individual child. When the child enters school, the teachers and classmates broaden the sphere of "Significant others". He emulates peers more as he grows.
