LESSON PLANS for the K to 12 Basic Education Program

     Lesson planning is an important aspect in providing meaningful teaching and learning process for the learners. Thus, it is important for the teachers to be competent in organizing and managing their classes and lessons effectively and efficiently in order to attain the learning competent and standards required by the curriculum.

     Under the K to 12 Basic Education Program, teachers are perceived as facilitators of learning. They are encouraged to prepare lesson plans that do not just focus on what to learn rather on how to learn. They are expected to take into account learner diversity and to utilize various teaching and assessment strategies. Moreover, one feature in lesson planning in the K to 12 basic education program is the opportunity for the teacher for reflection in order to carry out quality instruction for the learners on a daily basis.

     Article IV, Section 2 of the Code of Ethics for Professional Teachers adopted in 1997 through Board Resolution No. 435 by the Board of Professional Teachers states that “every teacher shall uphold the highest standards of quality education, shall make the best preparations for the career of teaching, and shall be at his best at all times in the practice of his profession.” Hence, teachers are expected to uphold quality education standards by affirming the importance of instructional planning through Daily Lesson Log (DLL) or Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP) preparation.

1. Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP)

     Newly-hired teachers without professional teaching experience are required to make a daily Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP). This kind of lesson plan is also required for applicant teachers as well as teachers in the service including Master Teachers who will conduct demonstration teaching.

2. Daily Lesson Log (DLL)

     Teachers with at least one year of teaching experience, including teachers with private school and higher education institution teaching experience are not obliged to prepare a Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP). Teachers who have been in the service for at least one year, teaching subjects with available LMs and TGs provided by the Department shall also not be required to prepare a DLP.  

   The parts of Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP) and Daily Lesson Log (DLL) will be expounded on the next posts.
