Suggested Guidelines for Field Study Students
This set of guidelines is suggested to help pre-service students in the successful conduct of
their field studies. Each TEI shall address some institutional peculiarities that are covered in this
guideline.
1. Field study students are required to accomplish successfully activities in at least 17
hours for every semester in every field study course to earn a 1 unit credit.
2. Field study activities should be under the supervision of the Field Study Faculty of the
TEI in collaboration with the Field Study Cooperating Schools.
3. Field Study student shall secure appropriate Field Study permits and undergo
orientation/briefing before he/she is deployed in cooperating schools.
4. Each Field Study student shall wear official school/university uniform during the field
study in cooperating schools.
5. Each Field Study student shall secure a Field Study Notebook for each course.
6. Field Study student shall demonstrate personal qualities that reflect a good image of
a teacher. These qualities includes as courtesy, respect, honesty, diligence, open-
mindedness, critical thinking and others while doing field study.
7. Field Study student shall demonstrate proper behavior in the presence of the
learners, teachers, school personnel, administration and parents.
8. Field Study student shall request the signature of the resource teacher or person or
the field study faculty immediately after the activity has been done.
9. Field Study student is required to prepare a portfolio for every field study course. The
FS teacher is encouraged to prepare his/her own rubric for authentic assessment of
the portfolios. This rubric can be discussed with the students as part of the
orientation so they would know what criteria would be used and how their portfolio
will be assessed.

On Becoming A Teacher
Field Study 6 “On Becoming A Teacher” is one of the Experimental Learning Courses of
the prospective teacher. It tells the journey of how to become a teacher as exemplified in the
Teacher Education and Development Map in the pre-service education. Like any point in the map,
pre-service education is connected to the core which is the National Competency-Based Teacher
Standards (NCBTS).
One of the professional education subjects for Teacher Education as mandated by CMO
30, s. 2004 is The Teaching Profession. It is on this subject, the field Study 6 is anchored. Thus,
all the experiential activities for this Field Study are related to in-depth understanding, testing of
learned theories and concepts trough immersion and observation in real life situations that relate
to the teaching profession for personal reflection, formation of concepts and future application.
Kolb’s Experiential Learning cycle, shown below guides the flow of the processes that
every student environment, should undergo. The model presents the four elements which are:
concrete experiences, observation and reflection, formation of abstract concepts and testing in new
situations.
1. Concrete experience includes everything that the prospective teacher is tasked to do in
the school setting and the learning environment, where engagement in real and
authentic situation is required. The underlying principle is based on Dewey’s
philosophy of learning by doing. The series of experiences will motivate, encourage
and enable students to go on to have more valuable experiences.
2. Observation and reflection follow concrete experiences. For situations or episodes
which cannot be concretely experienced, one can make direct observations. The
observations become environmental experiences and first hand encounters through
the use of the different senses. Reflections on both concrete experiences and
observation should always follow. This would clarify understanding, deepen values
and appreciation.
3. Forming concepts follows observation and reflections. This is the validation of prior
understanding gained from the previous courses taken as well as formation of new ones.
This stage can best be done through clearing house or journal writing.
4. Testing in new situation. This stage may not happen during the current Field Study
subject, but in latter course like Practicum or Student Teaching where transfer of
learning will find its place very clearly.
As we continue our journey to become a professional teacher, let us remember the
stages or elements we have to go through: CONCRETE EXPERIENCE,
OBSERVATION, REFLECTION, FORMING/AFFIRMING CONCEPTS and further
TESTING IN A NEW SITUATION.

My Observations
Your concrete experience, enabled you to describe, what you are as a person. The qualities
reflect who you are. Make a similar observation of ten active teachers in school. Your observation
will be done through a survey and will produce empirical evidences. This observation method will
enhance your skills to collect data, like when you doing research.

You will be provided with a Survey Checklist for you to reproduce 10 copies for your 10
respondent teachers. (They are on the last page of this Workbook). Make proper request from these
teachers who will become your respondents.

Tabulate the results in the matrix found below:

The Observed Information


Procedure:
1. To get the average, add the scores of the ten teachers and divide by 10.
2. Look at the legend in your own checklist, and determine the description of the average.
3. Study the results.
Questions:
1. Which of the twelve attributes is the highest among the teachers?
 The highest among the twelve attributes in the teacher are cooperativeness,
reliability and pleasantness.
2. Which of the twelve attributes is the lowest among the teachers?
 Lowest attributes among the teacher are emotional stability and resourcefulness.
3. How many teachers are low in emotional stability?
 There is one teacher that low in emotional stability
4. How many teachers are high in compassion?
 There are 3 teachers that high in Compassion.
5. What six attributes are found to be strong among the teachers?
 Only three attributes are found to be strong or very high enough among the
teacher- compassion, pleasantness, and reliability.
6. What six attributes are found to be weak among the teachers?
 Only four attributes are found to be weal among the teacher- resourcefulness, self-
motivation, and self-confidences.
7. What interesting observations can you spot from the other data not asked?
 Looking at the individual rating of the 10 teachers, I have observed, except for
two teachers, that their level of intelligence and level of self-confidence are
somehow directly proportional. The highest they rate in intelligence, the highest
their self-confidence.
Use the information from your personal results and those of the ten teachers in making your
reflections that follow.

My Reflections:
After studying the results of your teacher survey, write down your
reflections on the following situations reported to have happened in the school
setting.

1. Why are some teachers reported to have bumped a learner’s head on the wall or
made a child swallow scratch paper or pencil filings? What attribute do you think is
low for this teacher?
A teacher must be emotionally mature.
Teaching is not merely about intelligence. It’s also all about good
personality.

2. Why do you think some teachers are better loved by students than others?
Some teachers are better to be love by students because of their happy
disposition, personality, differences which often include friendliness,
warmness, and enthusiasm which creates a sense of community and
belongingness in the class.
3. If you were to choose, which personal attributes should all teachers possess?
Why?
Reliability and emotional stability are the attributes that teacher must
possess because they need to maintain professionalism in all areas
from personal appearance to organized skills and preparedness for
each day.

My Affirmed Concept
After reflecting on this episode and recalling my previous subjects, I have realized that
there are several concepts in the teaching profession about personal attributes I learned that has
been affirmed and confirmed; examples of which are given below:

A teacher must be emotionally mature.


Teaching is not merely about intelligence. It’s also all about good
personality

My Future Application
Using what I have learned in this episode, when I become a teacher, I should….
Create a sense of community and belongingness in the classroom.
Respect my students and value their ideas and opinions so that my
students would feel safe to express their feelings, and of course
possess a good listening skills and take time out of my way too busy
schedule for anyone who needs me and lastly be one who is not just
intelligence enough to share, but someone with such a very good
personality to inspire, teaching is more than just sharing, it’s all about
inspiring for someone, Inspiring people take the spotlight as people
see your good deeds.

Among the three of you, who is more inclined to be an essentialist, perennialist,
progressivist, existentialist or behaviorist?

My Observations
Visit a teacher in a school and observe what school/classroom activities reflect
his/her philosophy of education while she is teaching. Identify and describe teacher’s action
or behavior and match each with the identified educational philosophy.
1. Observed actions of a teacher who is progressivism
The teacher that I could possibly site examples in this philosophy, which the
teacher applies more on examples that the students complied to answer in regards
with their understanding on the subject matter. After their discussing the lesson
the teacher would write some concrete ideas and he will write in the board and
later on the discussion he would call a students to answer the question and to
make them explain it in front of their classmate.

2. Observed actions of a teacher who is a behaviorist


In my observation the action of the teacher who is behaviorist was I did not notice
the teacher would always state a certain students who excel in the whole high
school department and uplift their particular achievements as well as their
capabilities in us. The teacher was very proud making some of their students to
experience a change of their environment through sending some of them.

My Reflections:
Based on your concrete experience and the actions of the teacher you have observed, how
important is your philosophy of education to your future career as a teacher? How would your
experiences and observations contribute to your becoming a teacher?
In order to become a teacher with a vocation and mission to change something
within the society. I could say, I need to do a lot of things in order to reach the part
where I can confidently provide my students of those things they needed, and
through experience I could possibly relate more, see more in them the kind of
philosophy that could be more applicable in a certain set of students that would fit.
Philosophy is very important as a guide in providing a student’s a quality of
learning. Teachers needed to consider the individual differences of her/his students
and used the best method for them to learn, choosing a certain philosophy might
direct them and motivate them to learn more on the subject matter that you would
choose for them. The teachers’ priority is the teaching method and strategies that
befitting for her/his students, because we are preparing them to face the reality of
the world.

My Affirmed Concept
Identify at least three concepts learned in your previous subject like The Teaching
Profession which are related to the Experiential Learning Episode 3 (Teaching
Belief/Philosophy) that are confirmed or affirmed in this activity? Enumerate.
1. Affirmed Concept 1
Teachers have a different teaching philosophies, having these philosophies
is something worthwhile to teach students in a manner by which you stand.
2. Affirmed Concept2
This was affirmed to me that the school we are observing, the teacher specifically
was using a certain philosophy. There was a person that affirmed who uses a
progressivism, could totally understand what are the type of philosophy she’s
going to use in applying their teaching. And the way she manage to get the
learners attention and get a response of a certain action made by her.
3. Affirmed Concept 3
Every teacher is entitled with own opinion of a certain subject matter from different point
of views.

My Future Application
Using the first hand experiences in this activity, how will I use when I become a teacher
in the future?

A. In teaching and learning


In teaching learning teacher needs to consider mostly what their students do need
in relation to their subject matters. The application of your teaching and how you
present them to a set of learners affect their interest. You have to be keener on
how you will deliver as their learning is the priorities among others in education
B. In addressing diversity of learners
In addressing diversity learners a teacher need to adopt and choose the kind of
philosophy that is more applicable in a certain group of learners.
C. In creating a conducive learning environment
In creating a conducive learning environment you have to look on the
environment of the students. If a teacher realizes that the kinds of environment is
not suitable for her learners and the methods he is using, then it’s time for her/him
to look on the alternatives to make some changes. In regards to teaching, the
teacher needs to look carefully on the “how to teach” of a certain philosophy in
order to integrate it with the current environment they have.

INTRODUCTION
A teacher as a professional will always be found in a school setting. There will be
no school without the teacher because a teacher’s official working place is a school. A
school is an institution where learning occurs under the guidance of a professional called
the teacher. You will also find yourself in one of these schools when you become a full-
fledged teacher. How does a teacher operate or function in a school setting? How will a
teacher manage the physical as well as the psychological environment in the school?

My Target
 Description of a typical school day of a teacher.
 Enduring understanding of the teacher’s role in creating a conducive learning
environment in the school.

My Concrete Experience
This experiential learning episode will take you to the actual school setting. Here,
you will spend more time making observations and talking to your Resource Teacher. The
steps that will guide you in your journey in this episode are as follows:
1. Visit a particular teacher as your resource in a school.
2. Secure the teacher’s program. Study the time schedule and the activities.
3. Make a class observation at certain period of the day’s activities.

Based on the daily program, find out what the teacher is supposed to do during
the time of your visit. Observe what the teacher is doing. Take note of the different activities.

INTRODUCTION
In the Philippines, the government has built schools in almost all strategic barangays,
town or city. This is done to provide access and equal opportunity for every school child to
achieve quality education. At present, there are more than half a million public school teachers
deployed in all these schools throughout the country. The school and the teacher in every school
have very crucial responsibilities in contributing to the change and development in every
community.

My Target

 List of identified community resources available for use by the teachers in
the school.

people are at their homes. Permission to conduct the community survey should be secured
from your teacher. The same permission shall be asked from the Barangay Officials. It is
suggested that this activity will be made by groups of five, to facilitate the collection of the
data. As a group, you will enhance your understanding of the community situation which
you will survey. In a way, this will be your community immersion activity.

Here are the steps:


1. Report to the Barangay Captain or Punong Barangay upon arrival in the
community.
2. Peruse a community map to find out the area you are going to cover.

surveyed. Interview a Resource Teacher.
In your interview, you may ask your Resource Teacher the following questions:
1. What school activities do you conduct that allow the participation of the people in the
barangay?
Some of the activities which allows the full participation of the people of the
community is the promulgating of brigade eskwela, cleaning the areas of the
school and doing repairs in the classroom.

In joining the school activities the community benefits from it. The learning that
the students gain in the activity is creating oneness and cooperation with each
other.
4. What does the community benefit from joining n your school activities?
After joining community activities, the students were able to describe how
community works and on how can we uplift and help our community, they were
able to help, cooperate, and volunteer on community services when needed.
5. As per your observation, are the lessons that you taught in the school transferred to the homes
or the community?
As a teacher, I would really hope and encourage the students to transfer their
learning to their homes and even in their community, it is my duty to teach them
good values and good conduct so that they will do actions positively and
meaningfully.
6. What community resources have you used in your teaching?
I asked the punong barangay to help encourage and use human resources, lend available
teaching materials.

My Reflections:
Make a narrative report below describing the data which you gathered. Present 1-2
pictures of the community or barangay in your photo essay.
Barangay Caballero
The School’s Community
A Schools Community is both a place and a set of partnership between the school
and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academic, health and
social service, youth and community development and community engagement
leads to improve students learning, and stronger families and healthier
communities,
2. Make a narrative report on the interview that you have done with the teacher.
School Community Collaboration
View of a Teacher
It is a place where you can feel welcome. As a teacher, you want to create
that atmosphere in your school. There are ways that you can help to build a
sense of community with the parents of your students. Giving positive notes
homes and invitation to the classroom to visit or volunteer will encourage
parents to be actively involved with their children.
After making a survey of the barangay and interviewing the teacher, answer the following
questions and reflect on each.
1. Which resources that you have identified are present in the community? Can these be utilized
in your teaching? How?
The use of community resources provide a shared memory for the class, for
example going on a field trip is only part of the experienced. Materials or
equipment available for lending from various community organization connects
students to human resources in the community and expand the students access to
the society.

INTRODUCTION
Teaching is a respectable profession the world over. The status of teachers has
been comparable in all parts of the globe hence each year there is a celebration of
the WORLD TEACHER’S DAY!
This alone would tell us, the recognition and honor given to the best profession
of all: TEACHING. A teacher is an extra-ordinary person in whose hands lies the
future of the world hence any teacher regardless of the country of origin should be a
GLOBAL TEACHER or a TEACHER of the WORLD.

My Concrete Experience
ACTIVITY 1- THE FILIIPNO GLOBAL TEACHER
Let us begin with ourselves, the Filipino teachers. Why are Filipino teachers doing
very well in classrooms and schools outside our country? Many of them are awarded as
exemplar teachers, best teachers and model teachers. They are honored by the school,
parents and community as well. Would you like to be a global teacher, too, someday?
A Filipino teacher should be equipped with personal and professional qualities and

ACTIVITY 2- GLOBAL TEACHERS THE WORLD OVER
Activity 1 describes the competencies that a global Filipino Teacher should possess.
Now, we need to also know the competencies required of other teachers from other
countries of the world.
Since we cannot travel physically to other countries, we can reach these places
through the use of modern technology like surfing the World Wide Web, interviews and
use of other sources of information.
Choose two countries other than the Philippines. Search for the personal and
professional competencies required of the teachers in that particular country. You may also
interview a Filipino teacher who has taught in these countries.
Be guided by the Matrix given below:
Global Teacher from Other Countries
Name of the Country Personal Qualities of Professional Qualities Requirements to
Teachers of Teachers become a

respectful and collegial ethics and diploma or higher
equality. enthusiasts. TESL certification.
New Zealand

My Observations
1. Based on your personal interview of the Filipino Teacher on the competencies of the national
standards for teachers, has the teacher met the requirements? Explain.
Based on my observation the teacher has really met the requirements on the
competencies of national standards for teacher, because quality education matters
and practically relevant education is needed to create a lasting change and
improve the children’s learning.
2. If the NCBTS is the measure of a global teacher, can the teacher you interviewed meet the
challenges of global education? Why? Why not?
Yes, because very child needs a teacher, they hold the key to the sustainable
development of every society, educational goals cannot be meet without teachers,
whatever may be the specialization of every teacher.
3. Are there similarities or differences among teachers in other countries in terms of the standard
requirements of a professional teacher? Explain your answer.
There are similarities and difference as well. Based on what I have researched, the
teachers in USA developed 5 principles of professional standards as values. These
principles are not totally different with the 7 domains of the NCBTS that we have
for our teachers here in Philippines. As what I observed, these principles and
domains correlated with each other. The difference I have noticed is that in the
USA, linking the school to the community is not highlighted or given much focus.
4. Would Filipino teachers be comparable to their fellow teachers in other countries? Explain your
answer.
Teachers are given satisfactory or positive trust rating in every country but the
influence of teachers status, the social and cultural forces that determine how much
we respect teachers are harder to measure.
My Reflections:
Indeed, becoming a global teacher requires certain standards. As observed, there are
more similar expectations of teachers, the world over.
As a pre-service teacher education student, how do you see yourself, ten years from
now to the other teachers from all over the world?
Can you meet challenges of being a global teacher?
I see myself as a global teacher 10 years from now, an expert in a particular
are of study which has a global demand for knowledgeable on the subject,
ready to meet many challenge in the teaching profession.

My Affirmed Concept
After undergoing this Experiential Learning Episode, what prior learning in the previous
courses has been affirmed?
Identify at least three concepts about a global teacher.
The concepts I have learned before and are affirmed now include the following:
Concept 1: A global teacher must constantly keep op new techniques in teaching to be always up
to date with the modern world and must have a good communication with other people, in
students, co-workers, and in students’ parents.
Concept 2: A global teacher should be responsible about his/her duties and obligations and be
resourceful in making in structural materials.
Concept 3: A global teacher must possess a sense of justice so as to be always fair with his/her
students regardless of their social standing.

My Future Application
How would you prepare yourself to become a global teacher?
As a future global teacher, I must prepare myself to become a globally
competitive and aware of the educational system of other countries. I should be
knowledgeable in information technology so that I can use it to improve my skills
in teaching and should always apply new techniques in teaching.

thought, word and action. I am a student for life.
God loves me… he made me a teacher to be his Extension in the noble process of transformation

My Observations
From the answers given by the teacher you interviewed, is the teacher a professional
teacher?
1. Why do you think so?

2. Why don’t you think so?

Can you find other teachers who are professional teachers among the teachers whom you
know?
What characteristics or qualities distinguish a professional teacher from a non-professional
teacher?
Be passionate, positive, and enthusiastic about your work. A professional teacher
will not create negativity in a staff room or engage in mindless gossip and the
spreading of dissent.
Treat your students with respect. Never publicly humiliate or belittle your students.
Do not discuss their results or grades in front of other students. Don't personalize
issues with students. Leave their family, background, religion, behavior, and
personal circumstances out of public disciplinary processes and discussions.

My Reflections:
Considering that you will be a future professional teacher, what standards should you
uphold based on the Code of Ethics for professional Teachers?
As a future professional teacher that I should uphold based on the Code of Ethics
for professional teacher is being Preamble that believes that the education
profession consists of one education workforce serving the needs of all the students
and that term ‘educator’ includes education support professionals. The educator
believes in the worth and dignity of each human being, recognize the supreme
importance of the pursuit of truth, devotion to excellence, and the nurture of the
democratic principles. Essential to these goals is the protection of freedom to learn
and to teach and the guarantee of equal educational opportunity for all. The
educator accepts the responsibility to adhere to the highest ethical standards.
My Affirmed Concept
Based on the learning I gained in my previous courses on the professional teacher, this
experiential learning episode has affirmed concepts that:
1. Professional teacher’s always on time for work. A professional teacher understands the need
to start the day well, every day. Truly professional teachers will make sure that they arrive at
least ten minutes before the first bell rings, so as to prepare themselves mentally for the day
ahead.
2. Professional teachers take charge of your classroom. Manage your students' behavior. A
professional teacher will not keep running to school management for assistance with classroom
discipline.
3. Professional teachers follow procedures and the protocol expected at your school.
Professionals embrace the corporate identity and values and model these for the clients - in this
case, the children they teach.
4. Professional teachers are prepared. Check your diary the night before and plan the day ahead.
Professional teachers plan thoroughly too for every lesson and class. They stick to their work
programmer and assessment schedule, to ensure that not only syllabus content is covered, but
also the necessary skills for their students' longer-term success in their specific subject or
learning area.
5. Professional teachers keep up to date with your marking and grading of students' tasks. A
three day rule of thumb should apply. If you take too long to hand back class tests and so on, the
students will have lost interest in the task and their results by the time you return their work.

My Future Application
When I become a professional teacher, I should…………..
I become a professional teacher my see yourself as the students’ mentor, not their friend.
Effective teachers care about their students and want to be involved in their lives, but they also
realize that they must take the role of mentor, not friend. A mentor steers and guides his students
without acting like their peer. Be friendly, not familiar. Be friendly and open in your interactions
with students, but avoid being familiar. Care more about being effective than being liked. While
everyone has an innate desire to be liked, you cannot let this natural inclination control you as a
teacher. If you worry about whether or not your students like you, you won’t be professional, and
your classroom will become very difficult to control.
