Daily lessons in life

Mar 13, 2018

“BY FAILING to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” This may sound as an old cliché but it is true for all of us specially for all Educators. DepEd Order 42 series of 2016, has implement the policy of Daily Lesson Logs for all public school teachers. The debate continues as to whether the implementation of such policy has added to the tons of paper works, a redundancy for there are modules and teaching guides available, for those in the elementary group, those teachers who are self-contained are burning their midnights oil just to prepare a minimum of five DLL for a week.

Whatever the reasons behind the said Deped Order, we must never forget that as teachers we are expected to be PREPARED at all times. While it is true that most teachers would say that “they can teach without DLLs or Lesson plans. My point here is to let us realized the genuine reason why we have to plan. On a personal note, DLLs, DLPs or Lesson plans will save all for additional burdens in case of Substitution for those who are on sick leave. By just following the Plan, students will not be left behind in a day’s or a week’s task.

It should not be subjected for debatable discussions. You are a responsible, an efficient educator if you plan ahead whether it is written or not. You are the captain of the ship, as they say, so you must know how to facilitate teaching- learning encounters in a more positive way.

We must be like soldiers that are equipped with proper weapons before battling the battle ground. Yes, even soldiers have their plans too like teachers. Only our hearts would know. When we will reap the fruits of such sacrifices, only then can we proudly say that we have planned not just a Good but a Better Plan with God’s helping hand on the Journey.
