Grades 7 to 10 Sample Class Programming

For the information and guidance of the field, all elementary and secondary schools are requested to submit Class Program/Teacher’s Program as per attached DepEd Order No. 31, s. 2012 dated April 17, 2012, “Policy Guidelines on the Implementation of Grades 1 to 10 of the K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum (BEC).


A key feature of the Junior High School program is the provision of time for independent/cooperative learning. This learning block which may be allocated two to four hours weekly may be scheduled at the start, middle, or end of the learning day. The purpose is to develop student capacity for self-directed learning, teamwork, goal-orientation, sense of responsibility and accountability for results.

A prototype class program, which is designed for a four-hour period for independent/cooperative learning, is presented below. This block of time may be reduced to three or two hours weekly as the school may deem appropriate.
