GarciaCooperating School: Candating High SchoolCurriculum Examined: Lesson Plan in English Balance is the equitable assignment of content, time, experiences, and other elements.

The lesson plan is very balanced when it comes to the equal distribution of the lessons. If you notice the title for each week, you will see that it gets into a broader content which concerns from self to community. This pretty much covers the interest of the learners and the contents can be equally covered in a certain time frame. The curriculum is arranged vertically or horizontally. ArticulationVertical Articulation: Example #1 1st year Grammar: Use indirect discourse to report requests, commands and advice.
