Daily Lesson Log guidelines for daily lesson preparation was issued by the Department of Education to institutionalize instructional planning which is a critical part of the teaching and learning process in public schools. These guidelines are meant to support teachers in effectively organizing and managing K to 12 classrooms to be genuinely responsive to learners’ needs.
These guidelines in the preparation of K-12 Daily Lesson Log shall instill reflective practice among teachers by providing them opportunities to think about and reflect on their instructional practices. K-12 Daily Lesson Log preparation is part of the teacher’s core function as a facilitator of learning inside the classroom. Well-prepared and well-planned lessons are fundamental to ensuring the delivery of quality teaching and learning in schools.
The Department of Education (DepEd) recognizes that instructional planning is essential to successful teaching and learning (Dick & Reiser 1996). Instructional planning is the process of determining what learning opportunities students in school will have by planning “the content of instruction, selecting teaching materials, designing the learning activities and grouping methods, and deciding on the pacing and allocation of instructional time” (Virginia Department of Education). According to Airasian (1994), planning is a vital step in the instructional process. It involves identifying expectations for learners and choosing the materials and organizing the sequential activities that will help learners reach those expectations. Instructional planning guarantees that teaching and learning are the central focus of classroom activity. Furthermore, it helps ensure that the time spent inside the classroom is maximized for instruction, is responsive to learners’ needs, and therefore communicates expectations of achievement to learners (Stronge, 2007).
Research shows that effective teachers organize and plan their instruction (Misulis 1997; Stronge 2007). With content and performance standards and learning competencies firmly articulated in the K to 12 curriculum, it is easier for teachers to carry out both short-term and long-term instructional planning. Under the K to 12
Basic Education Program, teachers can in fact plan student learning for a year, a semester, a quarter, a unit, or a lesson and secure coverage of the curriculum.
DepEd issues these guidelines on daily lesson preparation based on the belief that instructional planning is fundamental to ensuring the delivery of teaching and learning in schools. Daily lesson preparation also encourages reflective practice since it requires teachers to think about and reflect on their instructional practices on a daily basis. Article IV, Section 2 of the Code of Ethics for Professional Teachers adopted in 1997 through Board Resolution No. 435 by the Board of Professional Teachers states that “every teacher shall uphold the highest standards of quality education, shall make the best preparations for the career of teaching, and shall be at his best at all times in the practice of his profession.” This policy is therefore meant to support teachers in upholding quality education standards by affirming the importance of instructional planning through Daily Lesson Log (DLL) or Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP) preparation.
These guidelines ultimately aim to assist teachers in not only effectively managing instruction but also managing the performance of one of their core functions, which is to facilitate learning inside their classrooms.
