Philosophical Belief and Opposition Assignment Collect six articles from peer-reviewed academic, professional journals. Articles are to be on topics as outlined below. All six articles are to be new to you, meaning that you have not used them in any previous assignments in this or another course. Annotate each article in a paragraph or two of at least 300 words. The annotation is to include a brief summary of key ideas in the article and a sentence or two of critical analysis. The critical analysis must be through the lens of course textbooks, video presentations, and/or biblical principles. Cite sources accordingly.
ARTICLE TOPICS: Your articles will be collected in two sets of three each. Philosophical Belief and Opposition Assignment
-For the first set of three articles, you will select articles related to an educational thinker from the Gutek textbook that aligns closely with your personal beliefs about education. This individual’s ideas should resonate with you more strongly than any of the others you have studied so far in this course. You need not fully embrace all of the individual’s ideas, and you may certainly have points of disagreement. Overall, however, you should be drawn to this individual’s philosophy of education more so than any others in the Gutek textbook. To clarify, all three articles in this first set should be on the topic of the same educational thinker.
-For the second set of three articles, you will select articles related to an educational thinker from the Gutek textbook that represents ideas to which you are opposed. This educational thinker should be in a different philosophical camp than the first one you selected for your first set of articles. (For example, if your first set of articles is on John Dewey, your second set should not be on Jane Addams because she is in the same progressive camp. Philosophical Belief and Opposition Assignment A better selection for your second set of articles would be Aquinas or Bagley because they are from opposing philosophical camps than Dewey. See the chart at the bottom of these directions for guidance if you are confused by this.) Though you may agree with and support some of the ideas or actions of this second educational thinker, there is a key element that you reject—something that is antithetical to your own core values or philosophy of education. All three articles in the second set will be on the topic of this same second educational thinker. Philosophical Belief and Opposition Assignment
