  1. 1. 1. Interview your model teacher on how he/she lives teaching as a vocation, mission, and profession. For my four years of staying in college I really admire and considered Mr. Renato Valdez as my role model teacher. His dedication in teaching inspires me a lot. He didn’t consider his students as an ordinary students but an extraordinary one for he believes that every students has great personality that need to be showed up and develop. Furthermore, as I ask him how he lives his teaching career as a vocation, he said, “my deepest desire in teaching is to genuinely serve my learners under my sincerest way of teaching them and I want to impart them the things I’ve learned not only about the subject but also about reality because a history teacher I want to show them how history brought them to me, and also I want to show them trough my action how dedicated I am in serving and teaching them that’s why even if I’m already the teacher I still studied the lessons that I need to teach them and I want also to a good example for them”. In addition, he told me that his mission in teaching is not about money and position it is about how you as a teacher brought contentment and happiness to your students and for yourself also because the student are not the one who is learning alone, teachers is also learning from his/her students. He said, “I have to go to school to make my learners be functionally literate, equipped with life skills and imbued with desirable values as a person”. Lastly, Mr. Valdez profession as a teacher is to be dedicated in teaching and imparting knowledge to his learner. He said that studying hard and dedicates his work consistently and conscientiously for the success of his teaching that his heart will be forever in his students to make them a better, equipped, and a good citizen not only today but also for the future.
  2. 2. 2. Name and identify the aim curriculum, methodology, and teacher – learner relationship of educational philosophies. Name atleast 2 Perennialism Perennialists believe that one should teach the things that one deems to be of everlasting importance to all people everywhere. They believe that the most important topics develop a person. Since details of fact change constantly, these cannot be the most important. Therefore, one should teach principles, not facts. Since people are human, one should teach first about humans, not machines or techniques. Since people are people first, and workers second if at all, one should teach liberal topics first, not vocational topics. The focus is primarily on teaching reasoning and wisdom rather than facts, the liberal arts rather than vocational training (http://www.answers.com/topic/philosophy-of-education#ixzz35nMJoC9F). In addition, Perennialism aimed to teach the students’ way of thinking that will secure individual freedoms, human rights and relationship through nature. Furthermore, it is a teacher – centered because it emphasizes on the importance of transferring knowledge, information and skills from the older generation to the younger ones. Also teacher is not concern at the students’ interest and it focuses more on the curriculum and nature needed. Teachers set everything based on the syllabus. Progressivism Educational progressivism is the belief that education must be based on the principle that humans are social animals who learn best in real-life activities with other people. Progressivists, like proponents of most educational theories, claim to rely on the best available scientific theories of learning. Most progressive educators believe that children learn as if they were scientists, following a process similar to John Dewey's model of learning: 1) Become aware of the problem. 2) Define the problem. 3) Propose hypotheses to solve it. 4) Evaluate the consequences of the hypotheses from one's past experience. 5) Test the likeliest solution (http://www.answers.com/topic/philosophy-of-education#ixzz35nMJoC9F).
  3. 3. 3. Formulate your own educational philosophy. My own educational philosophy is that this kind of philosophy believes that children, like all individuals, reach their greatest strides when they have a sense of inner sanctuary, security, and comfort and this will generally happened when they feel a sense of love and acceptance without the threat of physical and emotional pain or injury. The aim of this philosophy is to develop the self – awareness and self – realization of an individual that will help them to be more focused, and relaxed. This type of curriculum is a strong balanced curriculum because teachers are helping students to be equipped and balance. In addition, the child is not using his/her left and right brain that’s why I considered it as a balanced curriculum. Furthermore this philosophy facilitates learning through the integration of right/left hemispheres of the brain, that relieves stress and allow the individual to experience deeper levels of thinking and being and that will lead to the unfolding of greater potential.
