Let us do some activities to further understand the ideas which were presented ahead. Do the following activities with your group mates.

Activity 1- The Curriculum Stakeholders: Do Their Roles Differ?

  1. Each group will be composed of at least ten (10) members.
  2. With your group members, for a role playing presentation of at least three stakeholders of the curriculum as main characters and the rest of your group to take a particular role.
  3. Assign specific roles for each group member. Plan for appropriate dialogue and conversations to clearly show the role of each one.
  4. Provide a costume for each role player during presentation.
  5. Present your role play to the whole class in ten minutes.

Guide questions for the role play:

What significant roles do the stakeholders play?

  • The significant roles that the stakeholders play are being a learner, a teacher, a school principal, a parent, community members, and other stakeholders.

What dialogue illustrates these roles?

  • Roles:
  • Learner- “I understand what our teacher has discussed.”
  • Teacher- “Here is our topic for today.”
  • School Principal- “Make a daily lesson log to be passed every weekend.”
  • Parent- “My child and my money go to this school.”
  • Community Members- “We serve as a resource of the school.”
  • Other Stakeholders- “We give ideas for the planning and implementation of the curriculum.”

What actions of the key players show these?

How do the other members of your group support these roles?

Did each member of your group contribute to your activity?

  • Yes, they did.

Activity 2- Panel Forum on the Role of Each Stakeholder

  1. Each group should interview one kind of stakeholder. For example there are ten members in a group, each one will interview a teacher. Each one will bring a report back to the group which will be consolidated. The group will choose a member who will sit in the panel.
  2. Each group will be represented by a panel member. Each member of the panel will discuss her/his topic in a panel. The other members will listen.
  3. After the panel presentation, a forum will be opened and the whole class can participate.

Let us deeply think on the roles of the different stakeholders in the implementation of the curriculum. Identify the different stakeholder and describe their roles in the implementation of the curriculum.

  • Roles:
  • Learner

-Serves as the center of the school and who makes the curriculum alive. The success of the curriculum depends based from the extent of learning.

  • Teacher

-One who develops and implements the curriculum.

  • School Principal

-One who gives administrative support for both the teachers and the learners and keeps the important records and documents of learners.

  • Parent

-One who invest for his/her child education in the school.

  • Community Members

-Serve as resource who are both indirectly and directly involved in school activities.

  • Other Stakeholders

-Professional organizations which help for the planning, evaluating and implementing of the curriculum.

  1. The Roles of technology in Delivering the Curriculum

In the traditional approach to instruction, the teacher

  • presents the lesson to the class
  • assesses the students (through oral or written tests) and
  • moves top the next lesson.

In a proposed mastery approach to instruction, the teacher

  • presents the lesson to the whole class
  • assesses if the learners attained mastery of the lesson
  • provides enrichment activities with the use of media technology
  • re-mediates the non-mastery students
  • moves on to the next lesson.
  1. How is the mastery approach better than the traditional one?
  • The mastery approach provides more time both in discussion and assessing the learners by giving enrichment activities with the use of media technology within the allotted time set for the lectures and activities while traditional approach makes it difficult for the teacher in terms of time-management for the discussion and assessments within the allotted time.
  1. The mastery approach appears time consuming and difficult. Do you believe practice and experience can overcome these difficulties?
  • Yes, because through practice and experience, it can help the teachers to be more manageable especially in terms of time-management in doing their lectures and activities with the use of technology.
  1. How can technology help in enrichment activities?
  • Through the use of technology, it can provide more relevant and rich activities in relation with the topic being discussed.
  1. Should the effective use of media be also assessed by the teacher? Why?
  • Yes, because it can give the teacher more ideas on how to use media more efficiently, effectively, creatively and appropriately in terms of teaching-learning process.

ANSWER: Learners

  1. Situation:

In one school, the parents got so involved that collectively, they interfered with the transfer of the classroom location because they have contributed so much to its improvement. The school authorities sustained a position that the school plant plan should be honoured. The Parent Association has invested in the improvement of the classrooms, but the school’s administration’s plan should be upheld. Anyway, the classes will be transferred to equally good classrooms that would enhance learning. Because of the school’s decision, the parents threatened to pull out their children. If you are the principal of the school, how would you handle the situation? Write your opinion. Offer recommendation.

ANSWER:

If I am the principal of the school, I think it is better to conduct a meeting with the school teachers, staffs and the parents in order to talk about the school plant plan and to know the opinions and suggestions of the parents about the said plan. Through this, it can help the school authorities with the parents to have a better ideas and plan for the improvement of the school.

  1. The Roles of technology in Delivering the Curriculum

SELF-CHECK

Learners say, we learn 83% through the use of sight, compared with less effective ways to learn: hearing (10%), smell (4%), touch (2%) and taste (1%). In the use of visuals for a wide range of materials (visual boards, charts, overhead transparencies, slides, computer-generate presentations), there are basic principles of basic design.

Assess a visual material or presentation (a transparency or slide) using the following criteria:

Visual elements (pictures, illustrations, graphics):

  1. Lettering style or font- consistency and harmony
  2. Number of lettering style- no more than 2 in a static display (chart, bulletin board)
  3. Use of capitals- short titles or headlines should more than words
  4. Lettering colors- easy to see and read. Use of contrast is good for emphasis.
  5. Lettering size- good visibility even for students at the back of the classroom.
  6. Spacing between letters- equal and even spacing
  7. Spacing between lines- not too close as to blur at a distance
  8. Number of lines- no more than 8 lines of text in each transparency/slide
  9. Appeal- unusual/catchy, two dimensional, interactive (use of overlays or movable flaps)

Use of directional-devices (arrows, bold letters, bullets, contrasting color and size, special placement of an item.
