Since learning outcomes vary from one school to another, it is imperative that all faculty members under one school contribute and work towards the same goals. With a solid foundation and knowledge on the proper creation of curriculum maps, the teachers are now geared up and calibrated upon entering the new academic year ahead.


As part of the In-Service Training (INSET) program for the faculty, FEU High School held a 2-day training on Curriculum Mapping last July 5-6, 2021. The training was led by Mr. Aljohn Aguilar from the Humanities and Social Sciences Department and co-facilitated by the cluster heads from different strands. It served as a refresher course for the current faculty and a kick-start to the newly hired teachers at FEU High School. 

Curriculum Mapping is a process for collecting data that identifies its content, thinking process, and assessment to improve communication and instruction in all areas of the curriculum. In other words, it is the documentation and discussion of what we teach and a collaborative process that helps us understand teaching and learning throughout K-12. The major objective of this workshop is to improve both the curriculum delivery and assessments by allowing vertical and horizontal alignment of assessment content and techniques across subjects and grade levels.  

Curriculum mapping is a vital tool in aligning the learning outcomes of the institution into the programs and subjects it currently offers. During the training, the four kinds of maps consisting the bigger umbrella of Curriculum Map were thoroughly discussed. These are the Essential Maps, Consensus Maps, Projected Maps, and Diary Maps. To further elaborate how each map works, the facilitators provided specific formats and examples that are currently being used in FEU High School. Shortly after the discussion, the teachers were tasked to collaborate and create their own maps with their respective groups. Each group created a map of their chosen subject area and presented it to all the participants afterwards. The 2-day session indeed established the collaboration among all teachers from different strands and grade level.  

This curriculum mappping workshop has been extremely beneficial in assisting teachers in reflecting on and adjusting their own subject and lesson units throughout the school year. In a nutshell, Curriculum Planning is a planning tool that keeps us focused and targets necessary information. It captures the content standards (knowledge), performance standards (assessments), and learning competencies (skills) taught by every teacher in the school. 

It only entails that the faculty of FEU High school is ready to face the new chapter and are prepared to share and apply the skills that they honed for their learners. 

Since learning outcomes vary from one school to another, it is imperative that all faculty members under one school contribute and work towards the same goals. With a solid foundation and knowledge on the proper creation of curriculum maps, the teachers are now geared up and calibrated upon entering the new academic year ahead.
