- Discuss at least 1 school of philosophy and one educational philosophy for each decision-making model.
- Contrast the 3 models’ design, beliefs, and underlying suppositions.
- Include in your descriptions likely educational settings where each model could be used. You should discuss at least 1 situation for each of the 3 models. Indicate any educational setting(s) where a particular model would not be the best choice and explain why.
