MY INSIGHTS AND REFLECTIONS


The Learning
Subject
Library

Environment

The learning environment


must be conducive to
learning.
It should be well ventilated.
The room is clean to avoid
distractions to students.
The blackboard, table and
chairs are in good
condition and enough.

Matter/s
Covered
The subject matter must
follow what on the
curriculum.

and/or
Internet
Resources
The resources must be
prioritize because it is
where all the knowledge
can be gained and it must
be accessible to all.
When I visit the library, I
expect that theres a group
of students studying
together but theres no one.
Im so disappointed about
that. Maybe they are not
informed of how helpful
the library is. I hope that
soon it will be formally
introduced to them so that
the books will be very
happy because theres
someone who will use
them.

Your Analysis
Why should teachers know about curriculum design?
The teacher should be knowledgeable about the curriculum design because this is his/
her guide throughout the school year. The resources, assessment tools, modules and last but
not the least the objectives that she needs. All the knowledge that the students must learn is
anchored on the curriculum. If the teacher failed to follow that her teachings will also fail.

What do most principles and theories of curriculum development have in common? How is
this commonality expressed or spelled out in the curriculum of the class you have
observed?
As of now, we have a class about curriculum design. From what I have learned, most
progressive principles and theories about curriculum development revolves around the total
learning experience and how the students are the center of learning. The curriculum, unlike
before is designed basing on the needs of the students. It is no longer designed for the ease of
the teachers implementation. In the class observed, the instruction is modified for every
student. If they think that the students cannot cope up with their classmates in doing the same
task, they provide another task for this student. If a student fails to do a task because he
simply cannot do it, learning must be a continuous process.

Your Reflections

From your FS experience, keep in touch with our most meaningful learning and
express it through abstract visual representation. Please use appropriate colors to
represent your feelings and significant learning.
