A few weeks before the start of the school year, I was instructed to attend a seminar in Dasmariñas. I was excited as it is my first time to attend a regional seminar. I didn’t know the scope, and I didn’t know what to expect.
In our country, it is customary to update the curriculum for every ten years. But now, after only 8 years since the Revised Basic Esducation Curriculum was adopted, a new curriculum will be implemented. There are many questions. Why too early? When will it start? Do we have enough time to prepare?
At first I was doubtful, but later halfway through, I believe, that as a teacher, it’s time we do things differently and better.
With the new 2010 SECONDARY EDUCATION CURRICULUM, anchored on its core the UbD template, we teachers are expected to teach for thinking and not to teach for facts. To develop students who are functionally literate and are ready to face life.
