How important is it for teachers and curriculum planners to anchor their curricular plans
to specific theories and principles of curriculum development?
Planning or designing a curriculum is not a game rather it must to be done seriously
for the future of the learners lies on here for the reason that what they will learn to be
considered as their weapon to battle for a good future.It is very important to anchor it with
theories in order to have guidelines and the preparation of the whole curriculum. Theories are
facts that are very useful in any representation and organizing research. They are used as
models and guides not only in curriculum making but in many aspects.

Aside from the teachers, who else should be involved in the curriculum planning?
Explain our thoughts.
The performance of students is also involved because thats the main factor why
DepEd implement new programs for the students to become globally competent and
competitive. The school administrator is also involved. They are knowledgeable about the
equipments, the structural part of the school, the need of the school and school population.
Professionals study this kind of field. They are the expert when it comes to curriculum parts,
history and functions.
