Interpret and analyse how the three principles of the curriculum policy could be applied in the classroom. (6
Curriculum is planned learning experiences with intended results and recognizes unintended effects in a school or a college. There are three forms of the curriculum; explicit, hidden, and excluded curriculum. Principles of the curriculum are values a school believes will assist students and the community succeed. Formal, implicit, and prudential are the principles used to implement the curriculum in the classroom.
A formal policy is an official and mandatory statement on what the students should be taught. The standard policy includes the syllabus that should be presented to the students in the classroom. Students should not be taught the content that is not in the syllabus provided by the government.
implicit policies are policies that individual teachers draft to guide the learning of the students. These policies are not written; hence they are not official. However, teach systematic knowledge in the classroom. These policies should be applied in the classroom after understanding the needs of all students, therefore, satisfy their learning desires.
The prudential policy is a policy that ensures that the process of learning is affordable to all learners. The teachers are supposed to use learning that does not make the parents or guardians strain financially. For example, a teacher should use the learning materials that are readily available in the school compound or improvise to make the learning process easy and affordable.
