  3. 3. 3 For this concept, go through the following steps. 1. Visit a school and find out how they attain the aims of elementary, secondary and tertiary education. 2. Interview a school administrator/faculty about how they concretize their school's vision and goals into the curriculum. 4. Interview one or two students and ask them their school's vision/mission. 3. Record the different methods/startegies that they employed to attain their school's objectives.
  4. 4. 4 My Tools 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. V I S I O N M I S S I O N G O A L S •A result oreiented sceondary school that produces skilled, value0laden and academically competetive learners resilient to global change. •To provide quality education for all learners equiped with life0long skills, desirable values and borad knowldege committed in building a progressive environment- friendly society. •To realize our vision, we seek to live out and commit to: 1.

Procure equipments and adequate resources necessary to enhance learning activities. 4. Deepen harmonious relationship among parents, benefactors and community through social oriented activities such as outreach programs, cultural shows, sports festival and other related activities
  5. 5. 5 My Analysis 1. How important is the school’s vision, mission and goals in designing the curriculum? The school vision, mission and goals are very important part in curriculum development. The school’s vision is a clear concept of what the institution would like to become in the future. It provides the unifying elements in which the members of the school community perform individually and collectively. It serves as the guiding post around which all educational efforts including in the curriculum should be aligned. Objectives direct the change in behavior which is the ultimate aim of learning. They provide the bases for the selection of learning content and learning experiences. They also set the criteria against which learning outcomes will be evaluated. 2. What methods and strategies were employed by the school community to realize these goals? Some of the methods and strategies done by the school are the following: Direct Method or lecture method- this aimed at helping students acquire procedural knowledge which is knowledge exercised in the performance of some task. This is used in everyday class interaction in the class that u am observing. This is the basic, some say obsolete method yet effective to impart knowledge to students. Inquiry method- this school provides opportunities to the students to explore, inquire, and discover learning. Instead of giving assignments that can be copy pasted on the internet my cooperating teacher give task that requires analyzation and application of the learning. Project method- though this is not done with the English class that I am observing, I observed that this is done to other major subjects such as TLE, Math and Science. This method aimed to give students first hand experiences. Fieldtrips- my cooperating school offers variety of Educational trips for every subject. One of the problem I observed with these method is not all students can’t afford to pay the fieldtrip fee limiting only the learning experience to those who have the money to pay for it. Fieldtrip is a good method to expose students to the larger society to which they are a part.
  6. 6. 6 Seminars- small seminars are given to the students to educate them with things that are not taught in a classroom context. The school has seminars for journalism, mathematics, computers and other basic skills. This is a big help in attaining the school vision for it provides student not only knowledge but also the necessary skills. 3. How did the students manifest that they have internalized their vision, mission and goals? The students manifest that they have internalized their vision, mission and goals by the evaluations or test done by the schools. These examinations will measure the cognitive development of the learner. Meanwhile the affective development of the students can be seen by the way they behave inside the school, the way they interact with the people around them and the way they fulfill their responsibility as a member of the community, as a student and as children to their parents. The psychomotor skill can be manifested through the acquisition of skills learned by the school in the actual day to day living. it can be through doing simple works and chores, solving simple life problems and making life changing decisions.
  7. 7. 7 My Reflections/ My Insights 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 aims which is to develop a well balanced individual is attained or not.
