FEATURES OF THE K TO 12 CURRICULUM Follows the Spiral Progression Approach Promotes enduring understanding of the different topics and concepts across SPA disciplines and across subject areas Is defined in terms of standards – SPS SPJ expressed in terms of what students should know and the quality and Core Curriculum proficiency of the skill that they are expected to demonstrate as evidence Tech-Voc of learning S&T SPED
LEARNING STANDARDS They express what students should know and be able to do to demonstrate their learning. They set clear performance expectations for students, helping them understand what they need to do to meet the expectations. They guide teachers in designing instruction and assessment around what is important to learn.
Content What students should Standards know, understand and be able to do Learning StandardsEU What students should create/add value to/ transfer What is the relationship between the two (EU and learning Standards)?
LEARNING STANDARDS MAY BECLASSIFIED INTO Content standards, which specify the essential knowledge (includes the most important and enduring ideas, issues, principles and concepts from the disciplines), skills and habits of mind that should be taught and learned. They answer the question, “What should students know and be able to do?”
LEARNING STANDARDS MAY BECLASSIFIED INTO Performance standards, which express the degree or quality of proficiency that students are expected to demonstrate in relation to the content standards. They answer the question, “How well must students do their work?” or “At what level of performance would the student be appropriately qualified or certified?”

LEARNING AREAS AND DESCRIPTION Eight (8) learning areas of the core curriculum namely Filipino, English, Science, Mathematics, Araling Panlipunan (AP), Technology and Livelihood Education, Music, Art, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH) and Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao (EsP)
SCIENCE – GRADES 7 TO 10 The course deals with the basic concepts in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth & Space Science. Every quarter presents a different science discipline across grade levels in increasing level of complexity and sophistication. The course is focused on the development of awareness and understanding of practical everyday problems that affect the learners’ lives and those around them.
TIME ALLOTMENT/MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION Subject Medium Hours Per Week Filipino Filipino 4 hours English English 4 hours Science English 4 hours Mathematics English 4 hours Araling Panlipunan Filipino 3 hours Technology & Livelihood Education English 4 hours Music, Art, Physical Education, Health English 4 hours Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao Filipino 2 hours Hours Per Day: 5.8
TIME ALLOTMENT Minimum period for interaction Can be extended to include off-school experiences at home or in the community for transfer of learning to real-life situations Outputs are in the form of products and performances that should be monitored and credited accordingly
INDEPENDENT/COOPERATIVE LEARNING A separate period ranging from two to four hours weekly may be provided as open time for learning in order to give the students the option to learn on their own and/or with others those topics, content, or processes that they can handle by themselves.
