Learning Task 1.2

Module 1: Curriculum Planning

Welcome to my E-Portfolio

Hi there. Welcome to my E-Portfolio. My name is Jannabel Jane A. Mercado from BEED III BLK 053 and currently studying at Visayas State University Tolosa Campus. I will be using my E-Portfolio for our learning task Lesson 1.2

Direction: Read and reflect on the above article and write a reflection. Be guided by the following questions:

1. What roles the teacher play in the curriculum planning?
-The role of teachers in the curriculum process is to help students develop an engaged relationship with the content. Teachers build lessons that include simulations, experiments, case studies and activities to deliver curriculum. This would student to enhance there knowledge and skills when it comes to education. The teacher provides advice and guidance and helps students clarify ideas and limit tasks. This role can be a great way to pay individual attention to a student. However, it can also lead to a student becoming too dependent or even too comfortable with one teacher and one method or style of teaching.

2. What are the roles of administrators in curriculum planning?
- They analyse the quality of existing curricula and work towards improvement. They communicate with education professionals to ensure an accurate analysis. They report on curriculum developments and perform administrative duties.

3. What are the purpose of schooling?
- For me the purpose for schooling is to have a better future, to enhance your skills, and to have a lot of choices when it comes to work . To Help children fulfill their diverse potentials. Enable students to become well-rounded individuals, focusing on the whole child and not just mastery of academic content. Prepare students to live a productive life and become good citizens, while obeying the social and legal rules of society.

4. How well does the curriculum prepare students to meet the current and future challenges of the social and political order?
-The Following are six tips to guide you in preparing your students for what they're likely to face in the years and decades to come.Teach Collaboration as a Value and Skill Set, Evaluate Information Accuracy, Teach Tolerance, Help Students Learn Through Their Strengths, and Use Learning Beyond the Classroom.

Learning Task 1.3

Module 1: Lesson 1.3 Curriculum Design

Lesson 1.3 Activity/ Learning Task

Direction: Answer the following questions on your e-portfolio.

1. Name other subjects or disciplines as examples of subject design.
- Literature, Mathematics, Science, and History.

2. Name other subjects or disciplines as examples of the different types of integrated curriculum design.
- Science and Mathematics

3. Give some advantages and possible pitfalls of subject design and integrated design.
- Many education departments have proposed the concept of a 'Integrated Curriculum,' in which different types of knowledge and their respective disciplines are combined. And also the benefits of Integrated Curriculums include not only looking at topics in depth, but also offering a practical learning environment for students by using real-life examples.

4. Name some schools nearby you that use a learner-centered curriculum.
- Entot Elementary School

5. How do students learn in a learner-centered curriculum?
- Learner-centered education empowers the students to take ownership of what they learn by focusing on how the new knowledge solves a problem or adds value. Instead of simply pouring information over the child's mind, the facilitator presents the student with an issue and guides the class as they build a solution.

6. What are some benefits of having a learner-centered curriculum?
- Teaching would revolve around the students being heavily engaged in the lessons. There would be greater evidence of student - student interactions, not just informally, but also in terms of getting the students to work together on projects, discovery learning activities and structured group work.
Students will also develop negotiation skills through having the opportunity for the students to negotiate discussing course content, and agree on the types of assessment strategies to use. This might be set out as a ‘content curriculum buffet’ from which the student can choose topics. This would, obviously, be dependent on any external sanctions or constraints set by examining bodies or the need to meet Nationally set criteria.

7. Having a learner-centered curriculum in mind, answer the following questions below:
• What possible skills, knowledge, and values are emphasized in the curriculum?
- Learner-centered education uses interactive strategies to engage the students and develop their abilities. This educational approach helps students develop skills such as decision making and problem solving, team work, and presentation skills that are relevant to the current labor needs.

• What possible learning experiences can be provided?
- The possibles learning experience can be provided are being complex cognitive skills such as reflection and critical thinking, an ability to apply knowledge to practical problems encountered in one's vocation, family, or other areas of life, and an understanding and appreciation of human differences.

• What about the learning environment?
- Environmental education (EE) is a multi-disciplinary approach to learning about environmental issues that enhances knowledge, builds critical thinking skills, and helps students make informed and responsible decisions.

• What are the requirements of the curriculum for the teachers?
- A bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement for obtaining a teaching certification in the U.S. For those on the traditional path, teacher education requirements include a degree in education or a major in the subject matter they want to teach along with a teaching component.

8. Name a school nearby that uses problem-centered design.
- Entot Elementary School

9. Name some benefits and issues related to its implementation.
- PBL is a student-centered, inquiry-based instructional model in which learners engage with an authentic, ill-structured problem that requires further research (Jonassen & Hung, 2008). By breaking down the PBL cycle into six steps, you can begin to design, implement, and assess PBL in your own courses.

10. Identify some current issues and problems that can be used as a theme for a problem-based curriculum.
- For example, a problem-based learning project could involve students pitching ideas and creating their own business plans to solve a societal need. Students could work independently or in a group to conceptualize, design, and launch their innovative product in front of classmates and community leaders.

Module 2: Lesson 2.1 Curriculum Implementation

Learning Task 2.2

1. Choose the linear curriculum development model and identify the possible strengths and weaknesses of each model when applied the Philippine context.

- I chose Standard Based Curriculum Development Model and the possible strength of this model is, it applied to the Philippine context. When student are completely aware of what they are expected to do. The standard are clear and precise, often written in kid-friendly language. They’re a lot of teachers who post the standards for each content area to students to be able to see how each lesson fits into a bigger plan. The standards based instruction guides are planning and instructing to help teachers keep their focus on the learning target.

2. Choose cyclical curriculum development model and identify the possible strengths and weaknesses when applied the Philippine context.

- The Wheeler’s Development Model, because the strength of this model is to emphasize on about the situational analysis. It values feedback that’s why this curriculum should include feedback processes to be able to developed this model. Any information of this practice will bring changes because the new information should always be included in the curriculum. In the weaknesses of Wheeler’s Model, it have a time consuming because this studies of Wheeler’s Model are lacking of procedure between organizing and integrating the learning experiences, content and evaluation since it focuses more on the objectives than the area on the curriculum.
