According to their job descriptions, lead teachers must take responsibility for the development of curriculum plans that will be implemented in their classrooms. Using early childhood education theories and models, the administrator wants the group to develop a list of three criteria that they can use in deciding the projects or themes and that the corresponding activities are appropriate for the curriculum.
