Master of Psychology and Education, Preschool Level

University of Khartoum, Khartoum Sudan

Throughout my Master studies, I explored various domains of curriculum development.  The general aim of the curriculum development is basically emerged from the philosophical approach, specific or behavioral objectives, contents that translated into activities that are, at the same time, interpret the objectives and fulfilling the general aim.  The teaching methods proved clearly that anybody can learn if she/ he is approached differently with the right teaching methods, considering her/his abilities potentials and readiness.  Mainstreaming was the creation of these sophisticated styles of learning which targeted children with special needs.
