Field Study 4 Exploring the Curriculum

  1. 1. 2 FIELD STUDY 4 FS 4 In formal education, a curriculum (/kəˈrɪkjʉləm /; plural: curricula /kəˈrɪkjʉlə / or curriculums) is the planned interac tion of pupils with ins truc tional content, materials , resources , and proces ses for evaluating the attainment of educational objec tives . O ther definitions combine various elements to des c ribe curriculum as follows :  A ll the learning which is planned and guided by the s chool, whether it is carried on in groups or individually, ins ide or outs ide the s chool. (John Kerr)  O utlines the skills , performances , attitudes , and values pupils are expec ted to learn from s chooling. I t inc ludes s tatements of des ired pupil outcomes, des criptions of materials , and the planned sequence that will be used to help pupils attain the outcomes .  T he total learning experience provided by a s chool. I t inc ludes the content of courses (the syllabus), the methods employed (s trategies), and other aspec ts , like norms and values , which relate to the way the s chool is organized.  T he aggregate of courses of s tudy given in a learning environment. T he courses are arranged in a sequence to make learning a subjec t eas ier. In s chools , a curriculum spans several grades .  C urriculum can refer to the entire program provided by a c las s room, s chool, dis tric t, s tate, or country. A c las s room is as s igned sections of the curriculum as defined by the s chool.

Write the differences on both sides and the similarities at the center and then write your personal insights.  Teacher Students interaction  Both have ways of measuring and evaluating learning  Both include assignment  Both aim for students to learn Similarit ies FIELD STUDY 4 5 Tradit ional Curriculum Teacher Dominant __ More on memorization for _ mastery__________________ Paper and pencil Test _ Skilled-focused _ Rules are teacher structured _ Focused on the learning___ _ Outcomes________ _ Focused on defining and recall_ of information________ _____ More on individual work __ A lot of effort from teacher _ with giving information (spoon feeding)__________________ Progressive Curriculum Student Centered __ More on reasoning and open- _ ended questions_________ ___ Performance Test _ Rules are both student and _ teachers _ Rules are teacher structured _ Focused on the process of the _ learning outcomes___ _ Less teacher talking time _ Focused on the application of__ the acquired information____ _ Task focused _ Students’ self evaluation _ Public criteria (rubrics) _ More on group activities _ More on reflection _ My Personal Insight s: There are a lot of differences when it comes to traditional and progressive curriculum. Away to distinguish this type of curriculum in the traditional in teaching a particular lesson like in TLE in food technology by teaching or giving only and information about that particular lesson, while in progressive instead of teacher will do the work for example in preserving salted egg but the teacher will allow the students do the practicum in order that the students will learn more because the activity is done by them. Traditional curriculum is really far if we compared this to progressive curriculum. In progressive curriculum, there is a quality of education – the teachers are competitive and ready to compete to our globally competitive world. The students in progressive curriculum, and eager to learn unlike in traditional curriculum.

Find on what curriculum is being used in the schools/colleges/universities near your place. Check the corresponding column. My Personal Insights: The different types of curricula for me should that curriculum has its own diversity. I find it challenging to exactly know what type of curriculum a certain school is using. The hidden curriculum is quite intriguing for me because this type of curriculum is not deliberately planned but may modify behavior or influence learning outcomes. Honestly, I find it difficult for me to determine whether the curriculum operating in schools is either recommended, written, taught, supported, assessed, learned and hidden curriculum.
  6. 6. FIELD STUDY 4 7 If you are to design a curriculum for your own school, what are the things you need to consider? Accomplish the graphic organizer below. Strategies/ Methods to be used Things I Need to Do to Consider in Preparing My School’s Curriculum The learner’s needs and interest The support of teacher, staff and other School personas. Ideology of Nation The School’s Vision, Mission, Goals, Objective and Corporate Values 1. Why do we need to consider the traditional and progressive of view of curriculum? We need to consider the traditional and progressive points of view of curriculum because in a classroom, a diverse student could be found. As future teachers, we must see to it that whatever we are teaching, is suits the needs and learning capabilities of the learners. We need to utilize and organize various teaching methodologies so that our learners may learn better. Aside from that a wide understanding on what these two views of the curriculum is all about giving information on what view is beneficial.
  7. 7. 8 FIELD STUDY 4 2. How do the different educational philosophies relate to the curriculum in the schools you visited? Cite examples / situations. The different Educational philosophies relate to the curriculum in the schools I’ve visited by providing curriculum creator with framework for planning, implementing and evaluating curriculum in schools. Ex. Cooperative learning and curriculum that emphases on group activities and learner centered is based on progressivism. 3. Why is there a need to revise the curriculum from time to time? I firmly believe that there’s a need to revise the curriculum from time to time in order to suit to the demands of the present generation. we have to accept or adapt the different changes in our curriculum rather still remain on the same curriculum. To make more advantageous curriculum we will take. Upgrading the standard of our teaching area might be the past is not so effective compared to the new one. The society that we are in can be described as ever dynamic. It is a source of so many drastic changes that are very difficult to cope with and to adjust to. In relation to this, school curricula should address diversity, explosion of knowledge, school reforms and education for all. The relationship of curriculum and society is natural and encompassing. Therefore, the curricula should refuel and preserve the culture of society and its aspirations. Pictures of a Traditional School

  10. 10. FIELD STUDY 4 11 At the end of this activity, I should be able to identify the components of the curriculum and curricular approaches.
  11. 11. 12 FIELD STUDY 4
  12. 12. FIELD STUDY 4 13 For this Episode, visit a school / university or get a copy of the school brochure. Copy the school / university’s vision, mission and goals on this page. VISION We dream of Filipino who passionately love their country and whose values and competencies them to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to building the nation. As a learner-centered public institution, the Department of education continuously improves itself to better serve its stakeholders MISSION To protect and promote the right of every Filipino to equality, equi table, culture - base complete bas ic education where:  Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe and motivating environment.  Teacher s faci li tate learning and cons tan tly nur ture every learner .  Administrators and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensure an enabling and suppor tive envi ronment learning to happen.  Family communi ty and other s takeholder s are relatively engage and share respons ibi li ty for developing li fe- long learner s .
  13. 13. FIELD STUDY 4 15 1. How important is the school’s vision, mission, and goals in designing the curriculum? The school’s mission is comparable to constitution which is the way in which someone or something is composed and it sets the tone for everything else. It helps in guiding of how the school will be run. 3. What methods and strategies were employed be the school community to realize these goals? The methods and strategies employed by the school community to realize these goals were they oriented the students to the schools vision, mission, so that students will be guided on the aims of the school. Aside from that the school community ads as a role models to the students. They must first internalize in the relevance of the schools vision, mission to the curriculum. 2. How did the students manifest that they have internalized their vision, mssioin and goals? The students manifest that they have internalized their vision, mission and goals by being able to show in their minds and hears what they have learned. It’s not enough that they were bable to memorize their vision and mission but rather it must also be depicted in their actions.
  14. 14. The first component of the curriculum is the learning goals and objectives which are based on school’s mission, vision and goals which are based schools larger vision and mission but of course this school’s vision and mission is also aligned on the goals of education as stated on the Philippine Constitution. Just like in our lesson plan our vision and mission serves as our guiding stars for it allows us to decide what to be included in our curriculum and what is to be omitted, it is also important that students must be aware of the schools vision and mission so that they can internalized it and for them to set their personal objectives. When I was still in High school I wasn’t even of my alma matter vision and mission and I didn’t even know the importance of these goals but now that I am a future teacher and maybe a future curriculum maker someday I’ve realized the importance of the school goals. I’ve also learned that the school objectives should also reflect the needs and specialization of the whole educational community. At the same time, the school goals should be supported with quality educational experiences and learning content. And finally there should be an evaluation to know whether our aim which is to develop a well balanced individual is attained or not. 16 FIELD STUDY 4

  18. 18. F S 4 Today 's schools f ace enormous challenges. In response to an increasingly complex society and a rapidly changing technology -based economy , schools are being asked to educate the most div erse student body in our history to higher academic standards than ev er bef ore. This task is one that cannot be "teacher-proof ed" through management sy stems, testing mandates, or curriculum packages. Acquiring this sophisticated knowledge and dev eloping a practice that is dif f erent f rom what teachers themselv es experienced as students requires learning opportunities f or teachers that are more powerf ul than simply reading and talking about new pedagogical ideas. (Ball and Cohen, in press.) Teachers learn best by study ing, doing, and ref lecting; by collaborating with other teachers; by looking closely at students and their work; and by sharing what they see. This kind of learning cannot occur in college classrooms div orced f rom practice or in school classrooms div orced f rom knowledge about how to interpret practice. Growing ev idence suggests that this kind of prof essional dev elopment not only makes teachers f eel better about their practice, but it also reaps learning gains f or students, especially in the kinds of more challenging learning that new standards demand. (Darling-Hammond, 1997; NFIE, 1996.) Creating a prof ession of teaching in which teachers hav e the opportunity f or continual learning is the likeliest way to inspire greater achievement f or children, especially those f or whom education is the only pathway to surv iv al and success.

The evaluation and implementation have been successfully FIELD STUDY 4 23 through the subject matter. achieved. Observe a class, record the situations where these behavioral learning theories IMPLEMENT EVALUATE are applied in real classroom work. Behavioral Learning Theories – emphasize observable behavior such as new skills, knowledge or attitudes which can be demonstrated. When the teacher gives activity such as research work, experimentations, demonstraton of a certain things and the like. This will help the teacher to examine the learner’s behavior for the certain activity. Cognitive Learning Theories – unobservable mental processes are used to learn and remember new information or acquire skills. Cognitive learning Theory is seen during recitation, quizzes, exams, projects, etc. wherein, the teacher could be able to measure the
  22. 22. Behaviorism is an approach to psychology based on the proposition that behavior can be researched scientifically without recourse to inner mental states. It is a form of materialism, denying any independent significance for mind. The behaviorist school of thought ran concurrent with the psychoanalysis movement in psychology in the 20th century. Its main influences were Ivan Pavlov, who investigated classical conditioning, John B. Watson (1878-1958) who rejected introspective methods and sought to restrict psychology to experimental laboratory methods. B.F. Skinner, sought to give ethical grounding to behaviorism, relating it to pragmatism. Discovery learning is a technique of inquiry-based instruction and is considered a constructivist based approach to education. It is supported by the work of learning theorists and psychologists Jean 24 FIELD STUDY 4 Discovery Learning – individual learns from his discovery of the environment. Discovery learning can be seen during the experimentation, thesis, research and the like. Wherein the students are able to explore and could get ideas out of what they saw in their surroundings or in their environment. Reception Learning – learners are actively involved in their on learning. Learners are actively involved in their learning. We should say that it will be seen during performances like drama, role plays, poem, reciting, singing, etc. the learners are actively participating and learn a lot through socializing with other mates. If activities are on their needs or their capacity to do such thing and if it is based on their skills and abilities.
  23. 23. FIELD STUDY 4 25 1. Explain why teaching and learning give life and meaning to the curriculum. Well, the curriculum is just a set of broad guidelines, a blueprint of sorts, an Intention, a direction . This has to be Implemented, Operationalized, converted into Action, Interpreted, .... It is done by the teacher through her year & lesson pl ans & then operationalized 'in the field' with her students. The broad goals are interpreted into Achievable objectives & put into action. Feedback from students & the dynamics of & within the classroom, help the teacher to modify/tweak the curriculum or convey suggestions to the theoreticians or planners. Thus curriculum building is a continuous, ongoing process.However, a curriculum is a dead plan if it is not put into practice. And each teacher, while largely following & working within the parameters set by the cu rriculum, modifies, changes, adapts, uses, objectifies the details as per the demands, dynamics, demographics of her class. These little customiz ations are what make the curriculum come alive, & help achieve/attain the goals & objectives set therein. Hence, while the broad direction & parameters are set by the curriculum, the Individuals [teachers & learners] interpret it in their own way & go about achievin g the goals in their own way, factoring in the resources, time, labour involved, etc. ; how to make e ach topic more interesting, interactive, relevant, usable, .... 2. Discuss why the deluge of information poses a great challenge to both teaching and learning. Because you can't learn everything, yet in order to choose what to learn, much material must be evaluated in a fairly shallow manner. Now both teachers and students have to teach and learn already in primary and secondary education how to critically evaluate and compare online sources, instead of waiting to teach and learn those skills until after high school. I LIKE TE ACHNG B E CAUS E… … it is one of the many ways of imparting knowledge of the previous mind of individual. It means molding their hearts, minds and hands for them to become a good citizen and a good manipulating for in and efficient teacher, you could touch your students lives. You will be an inspiration and they will never forget you for the rest of their lives.

Exploring the Curriculum LET’S CRAFT THE CURRICULUM Name of FS Student__James Robert Pebida Villacorteza______________________ Course __Bachelor of Elementary Education_ Year & Section _____III – I_________ Resource Teacher ___________________ Signature ________ Date ____________ Cooperating School _______Bayawan City East Central School_________________
  27. 27. 30 FIELD STUDY 4
  28. 28. FIELD STUDY 4 31 A curriculum can be either horizontally or vertically. Write samples of them on the illustrations. After observing the class of Mrs. Dizon, I was able to pinpoint that that the curriculum used was in the vertical design because the broad topic
  29. 29. 32 FIELD STUDY 4 Vertical Articulation 1st year Grammar: Use indirect discourse to report request to commands and advice. Activities:  Divide the class into small groups and have them give the advice, commands or requests they would give or make in these situation (direct discourse). The other groups are to give in reported speech what was said.  Transformation drill on direct and indirect discourse (Imperatives: requests, commands, advice) in problem situations. 1. Examine the Basic Education Curriculum. What aspects do you want to modify. Why? I still lack experience to give any input to a curriculum made by experts, but I will try my best to convey my ideas. Since there are still non-readers when students reach high school, then part of it must be because of the curriculum. If I were the one to modify, I would sugg est the allotted time for the subjects be changed and the number of topics should be lessen for the lower grades and give more focus on the major subjects such as Language, Science and Mathematics. If this is done, I believe more time will be spent on learning the 4 language arts namely, Speaking, Reading, Listening and Writing. It is also vital to give more emphasis on basic Mathematics for mastery development to avoid wasting time with remedial classes in high school . This is really a great demand to all teachers because we can only comply with what the curriculum requires. Produci ng non-readers is not acceptable and is considered a failure on the part of the teacher. The distribution of time for each learning area should be reconsidered because this is what our learners need at the moment. When it comes to each subject the topics should be lessen because according to my research, the evaluation showed that  An overcrowded curriculum results in students’ poor performance in Grades I -III. Students need more time in Science and Mathematics.  Our students are deficient in reading ability and have not yet developed higher order thinking skills at Grade V. There is a danger of reverting back to illiteracy if the student drops out even before completing Grade VI. Teachers should a ll be aware of this and try to act now before it is too late. Our country ranked 39th among 58 countries in the 2010 World Competitive Yearbook (WCY), but remained the least competitive o f the 13 economies in the Asia-Pacific region that were included in the study. This is the second time that the Philippines ende d up at the bottom of the list of competitive countries in the Asia-Pacific region. According to Edilberto de Jesus, president of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), the results showed that
  30. 30. I personally prefer the learner-centered design model, particularly the experience-centered because I want to give activities to my students which they are comfortable with and when they are proficient with their strengths, the next step is to take th em out of their comfort zone to test their weaknesses and provide experiences for them to overcome these things. I want to give my experience as an example with F.S. 4. I was comfortable with having to do tasks in this subject with a lot of time in my hands, but suddenly I only have half of the days than what my classmates have to finish this episode. It was August 2 when the episode was given and August 3-5 will be my seminar in Assumption. I was nervous and sweaty hoping on that same day, August 2, I will find a resource teacher who will be willing to let me observe without prior notice. If this fails, then I can only observe on Monday, the day before submission and that would be r eally hard. Luck was on my side and I was able to see a teacher who was j ust starting their opening prayer, I was relieved that she was even glad that I came to observe her class. I’m thankful that I was able to get out of my comfort zone and I was able to come out alive and hopefully victorious. This was re ally a working under pressure scenario and I really had to pull out all my resources including human resources such as teachers to provide my copy of BEC, and PSSLC in English so I can better understand the Horizontal and Vertical articulation. It was seminar by day and typing by night. Research here and there and ofcourse putting together my observation report from Mrs. Dizon’s class activities. My point is, if I never had this experience, I wouldn’t know that I can pass this hurdle and even pass my report ahead of sch edule. I discovered something about myself that I never expected. I just want to share this feeling with my future students. The feeling of accomplishing something and gaining experiences for personal growth and finding out that I can do things that I never knew I could. FIELD STUDY 4 33 2. What curriculum models do you prefer? Why? What do I like best in these Subject-Centered Design Model Problem-Centered Design Model • Easy access to resource materials • It is the most familiar design • Easy to deliver • Aims for mastery in every subject • Provides a solid foundation for the next level • It is a unique design • Various problems are given emphasis • Focuses on real life experiences of the learner • Aims for social betterment • Includes the common needs and concerns of the learner on a deeper level
  31. 31. 34 FIELD STUDY 4 Learner-Centered Design Model • Recognizes the importance of the learner in the curriculum • Cognitive, affective and psychomotor development is emphasized • Develops interpersonal skills • Stresses the development of positive self-concept Make an illustration of any of the three curriculum design models. Be sure to incorporate the salient features of the design. Why I Like All 3 Designs Just like with the methods and strategies, there is also no single best Curriculum Design because the designs are all needed for each characteristic of a learner to be improved. The development of a child cannot rely on only one of the designs. They all work well in combinat ion to serve the needs of the students better. First, I want to state why I like the subject -centered design. This design is easy to deliver because the materials or the textbooks will be the guide of the teacher. This design is the most familiar to everyone. This is also a strong foundation for the implementation of the other designs in class. It serves as the students’ bac kground knowledge of a subjec t. So when other designs such as problem-centered and learner-centered are implemented the student will easily adapt to them. Second is the problem-centered design. This is suitable for the higher level students since this is the time when they need to start being mature people, stop daydreaming and face reality. The issues they will be facing when they graduate and bec ome workers will be muc h bigger so it’s a good time to practice in school by starting to face the problems they encounter in their life and how to solve or overcome them. Though I said in the title that I like them all, the learner-centered design is what I like the best. Teachers have it hard because they are supposed to correct mistakes but we have to be ready of the consequences as students may take it the wrong way and stop participating. We must find ways of dealing with errors because the path to fluency must include a lot of mistakes. The only way to make no mistakes is to say nothing and one

In the basic Education Curriculum (BEC) a cluster of subjects is assigned under MAKABAYAN. These include among others, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health and HELE. In its implementation, MAKABAYAN subjects may choose to have a common theme. CONTINUITY Vertical repetition and recurring approaches of the content provide continuity. Examples of topics in a subject area where content is organized in a spiral fashion increasing in a breath and depth. When grade I lesson in living things is repeated in the next grade level with higher complexity, a construction should be made. In high school, the same content heading as living things is included but linked to the content taken in the elementary level.
  38. 38. 42 FIELD STUDY 4 1. Why is there a need to articulate the lessons from grade school to high school? There is a need to articulate the lessons from grade school to high school because this can provide for a continuous flow of knowledge. There must be consistency and fluency during this period of transition.____________________________________________________________ In addition to that, educators must be sure to provde the conceptual base and experiences needed so that students will be able to understand new and more difficult concepts. Research also has verified the importance of building on students prior knowledge when helping them learn new concepts. _______ ____ As a teacher, I need to understand fully the dimensions of curriculum design because … I believe that no individual including teachers can predict the future with any certainty. Teachers therefore need to plan their curriculum according to the more likely future their students face while at the same time acknowledging that the students have a future. It will also be beneficial for teachers to understand fully the dimensions of curriculum design in order for her to internalize the curriculum that her school is using. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________

  43. 43. FIELD STUDY 4 47 Interview a teacher in the school you visited and inquire how they have utilized their parents as school partners in education. Effective parental involvement in school affairs may be linked to parent educational programs which is central to high quality educational experiences of the children. The parents become part of the environment of leaning at home. Parents follow up the lesson of their children especially in basic education. Parents provide curriculum materials that are not provided in the schools. They provide permission for their children to participate in various activities outside the school campus. In most cases parents associations have strengthen the curriculum by giving support to various activities and assisting in the accomplishment of the schools curriculum.
  44. 44. 48 FIELD STUDY 4 1. As a future teacher, I need to know and understand the six (6) features of the curriculum because… most curricula start to gain life from the time it is conceived and written. Curriculum is the larger blueprint, the broad guidelines and areas/topics of study. A teacher ‘interprets’, plans and executes the curriculum on a day to day basis. Resources are being generated, teaching and learning aids, activities, projects are identified according to the needs of the learners. Only the teacher knows the demographies, abilities of her student. It is the teacher who can “customize” it in order to cater individual ne eds. It is important that teachers should have collaboration efforts to the parents, faculty members, administrators, community members and other stakeholders. Teachers are the most crucial persons in the implementation of the curriculum. He/she holds the key in operationalizing what activities have been planned. With the full support of the principal, supervisor and other school administrators, the teachers who are empowered will be able to select, organize carry out and evaluate learning experiences. Teachers shape the school curriculum by sharing experiences that they have and the resources they are cpable of giving or imparting to the learners.

Vacancy of job is lesson. The BEC has its own advantages which is the reduction of time allocated in values education. It is the teachers obligation to integrate values to every lesson, may it be science, math, etc. 2. THIRD ELEMENTARY EDUATION PROGRAM (TEEP) Access to equality elementary has been achieved.

K to 12 - Enhancing the basic education is urgent and critical. - International test results consistently show Filipino lagging way behind practically everybody else in the world. NO Therefore I conclude that the K-12 program has its own pros and cons. I firmly believe that before making a stand on the K to 12 program, each of us must carefully study the possible effects or impact of this curriculum innovations to the learners. In my own views, the Philippine Government is not yet equipped with the necessary requirements to run the K to 12 program effectively. I just hope that the Department of Education will be responsive to pending problems of K to 12 program will be facing in the future.
