FIELD STUDY 4

Team Teaching Exploring the


Curriculum

1. RATIONALE
Field Study 4 (FS 4) is one-unit course. It is one of the series of sequential studies in
the Bachelor in Elementary Education and Bachelor in Secondary Education
Programs (BEED and BSED). This Field Study is linked to Professional Education

subjects such as Curriculum Development, Principles of Teaching 1&2, and Teaching


Strategies.
FS 4 focuses on planning whole lessons, the preparation of instructional materials,
and team teaching with the Cooperating Teacher and other Pre-service Teachers.
A second focus of FS 4 is to have the Pre-Service Teachers explore the curriculum
and gain knowledge and understanding of its vital role towards the achievement of
the student learning. By exploring the curriculum, PSTs are encouraged to analyse
whether the school structures such as the school vision and mission, resources,
class schedule, and teacher assignments help and support the achievement of the
desired curriculum.
In the field study, the PSTs closely work and collaborate with the cooperating
teachers in making lesson plans. In the process, the PSTs start to explore the
curriculum by choosing the appropriate subject matter to teach, motivational
activities and teaching strategies.
Team teaching is a future of many school activities so, it is important that the PSTs
will develop an awareness of the skill (as indicate by the BEC), an understanding of
the Teaching- Learning process and the need to work collaboratively. The preservice student teachers will be immersed in a balanced of activities to give them the
opportunities to plan, teach and learn how to evaluate the learners performance.
In FS 4,the PSTs should manifest skill such as: planning, teaching, managing a
class, evaluating sequences of activities for individual and whole classes via team
teaching, designing instructional materials and, developing a professional portfolio.

B. Exploring Curriculum
A commonly held belief is that curriculum is known as the list of subjects. Others
define it as a prospectus, a guide for course or program. However, curriculum
includes the life that encompasses the school. It is anchored on what the school
envisions for learners how it achieves this and when.
An effective curriculum contains the following aspects:
a. A clear and specific path on what learning is to be achieved by the
learners;
b. A clear and specific path on how learning is to be achieved. It provides and
communicates clear learning objectives suited and appropriate to the level
of the learners;
c. A clear and specific path on what teaching methods and strategies to use,
and how this is supported by appropriate learning materials and learning
activities.

SIGNATURE OF CT:__________________________ DATE:
C. The Art of Questioning
Effective questioning is basic to effective teaching. Instead of pointing out the
significance of a particular bit of knowledge, the teacher assists his/her learners
by using his/her questions to help them discover it for themselves.
A pre-service teacher should devote a good deal of attention to develop this skill.
According to Arabit, et al (1993), there are four dimensions in the way we ask our
students some questions and each of these develop some skills like:
1. First Dimension Questions- require literal understanding which usually begins
with Who, What, and When.
Ex. Who was Ruben? What was he carrying?
2. Second Dimension Questions- interpret between lines because the facts are
not directly or literally mentioned but the idea is being inferred.
Ex. What good are meatless Fridays to people?
3. Third Dimension Questions- require understanding and grasping fully the
authors ideas including supplementary meanings like asking How and Why.
Ex. Do you like the title of the story? Why?
4. Fourth Dimension Questions- require judging the worth of ideas and
effectiveness of presentation.
Ex. What would you consider as good qualities of the Filipino families?
Explain.
Activity:
Provide one example of each question dimension that relates to a topic in your class.

D. Instructional Materials

There are several types of instructional materials that teachers use in their dayto-day teaching activities. These materials can arouse and sustain the interest
and attention of the learners. It can concretize abstract concepts/ideas to
promote meaningful learning. They also assist learning because of the rich
experience that they provide.
With the proper selection and use of instructional devices or educational media,
learning becomes more permanent (Garo, 2004).
Audio-Visual materials
a. Audiomedia are materials or sounds that are transmitted, produced or
received through high fidelity waves which are heard through certain
equipment like radio broadcast and recordings.
b. Visual materials are representations of direct reality, which comes in the
form of sign and symbols. Examples of which are: cartoons, pictures,
posters,
drawings/
sketches,
diagrams,
charts,graphs,strip
drawings/comics strip and maps.
Multi-Media as an approach to teaching refers to the use of an integrated format of
audio-video and animation applications to create a multi-sensory teaching and
learning situation. The use of computer applications is very useful in the preparation
of the material.

Task 6:
Use the Observation Guide provided to evaluate the instructional materials used by
your cooperating teachers. This will give you an idea about how to prepare your own
learning materials.

E. Lesson Planning
Teachers need to plan to integrate what is to be taught and how to carry it out
effectively. Teaching is not a haphazard process. The highly interactive and
demanding nature of the classroom requires that a teacher plans thoroughly to
maximize student learning. The goal of planning should always be studentlearning.
Types of Daily Lesson Plan
1. Detailed Lesson Plan- presents both the teachers activity and the
learners activity under procedure or strategies.
2. Semi- Detailed Lesson Plan- includes only the teachers activity under
procedure or strategies.
3. Brief Lesson Plan- shows only the main parts of the lesson plan minus the
actual questions that you intend to ask.
Format of the Lesson Plan

1. How effective were my teaching and management skills?
2. What goals should I set for improvement in my next planned activity?
3. What else did I learn about my teaching?

ASPECTS FOR DISCUSSION


Task 9- Self-Appraisal
Practicum should offer opportunities for self-appraisal of the teaching learning
experiences of a pre-service teacher. To become a responsible teacher, the
pre-service teacher should be able to self-evaluate, to diagnose strengths and
weaknesses, and to plan for improvements. The PSTs should be able on their
ability to be self-aware, self-evaluate and self-correcting (Beltran,1992)

Direction: Reflect on one of the lessons you have taught. Record your seflevaluation on each item by placing a circle around the appropriate number. If
upon evaluating yourself, you are dissatisfied with your performance in any
area, think about how you could improve your practice. Re-evaluating yourself
frequently.
