Which Teaching Method's Right for Your Child?

1 of 5

1. Progressivism Encourages Kids to Learn From Real Life

Teachers promote curiosity by encouraging students to come up with meaningful questions, as well as strategies to find solutions. The curriculum is based on the students' experiences, interests and abilities. Students are able to merge several subjects together to see the connections between what they're learning.

Progressivism is based on educator John Dewey's theory that the best way to learn is through social interaction in the real world.
